The Uttar Pradesh Combined Medical Entrance Test (UPCMET) is conducted by the U.P. Unaided Medical Colleges Welfare Association (UPUMCWA) for admission to MBBS courses offered by its member colleges. The UPUMCWA is a consortium of unaided non minority medical colleges in Uttar Pradesh.
UPCMET 2015 will be held from 9 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. on 30 May 2015. Test centres will be available in 17 cities. The exam tests for admission to MBBS programs in member colleges for the academic session 2015 to 2016. UPUMCWA holds the test.
An MBBS is a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery degree. It is the basic and most popular [undergraduate] medical degree pursued in India because it allows one to go on to get a Masters degree in a large variety of specializations (i.e. General Medicine, General Surgery, Orthopedics, Radio-diagnosis, Radiotherapy, Obstetrics and Gynecology, etc), and is therefore extremely competitive. The length of the program is on average 5 and a half years, of which the first 3 semesters, lasting 18 months each, are spent on classes, while the last year is dedicated to the compulsory rotating internship. The cost for an MBBS varies depending on the institute, and ranges from Rs 332 per year for a local student to Rs 970 per year for an outstation student (from All India Institute of Medical Sciences AIIMS), to Rs 10,000-12,000 per year (for JIPMER), up to even 2-3 lakhs (not including housing and cost of food) per year (for a private college).
ð      Candidates should be citizens of India and at least 17 years of age as of 31 December 2015.
ð      Applicants should have passed the Uttar Pradesh Board's 10+2 exam, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), ISC or equivalent from a recognized university or board. Candidates must have English as a subject, with at least 50 percent in Physics, Chemistry and Biology together (40 percent for Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes/Other Backward Classes candidates).
ð      If you are appearing for the 10+2 exam in 2015, you are also eligible provided that you pass the exam with the appropriate marks.
The detailed exam pattern for UPCMET 2015 (conducted for admission to MBBS programs in medical colleges which are members of the UPUMCWA):
The exam has two papers with five total subjects. Paper I has a total of 100 marks and Paper II has 50 marks. Combined maximum marks for the test are 200 (not 250) since Paper II is just a qualifying paper and won't be considered for merit.

Chemistry: 50 questions
Total: 100 questions
Zoology: 50 questions
Botany: 50 questions
Total: 100 questions

The cut-off marks for Paper I are 50 percent (for SC/ST/OBC candidates 40 percent) and for Paper II are also 50 percent (40 percent for SC/ST/OBC candidates). Merit is determined from Paper I marks.
Paper I consists of two sections, Physical Sciences and Biological Sciences. Section A includes Physics and Chemistry, and Section B includes Zoology and Botany. The Physics section includes basic concepts such as mechanics, measurement and kinematics and wave motion and sound. You will need to be aware of relevant laws and formulas. Other topics that are included in this section of the test are heat (thermal conduction, first law of thermodynamics, thermometry), light (chromatic aberration, refraction at spherical surfaces, wave nature of light), electricity, electromagnetism and general properties of matter (kinetic theory, kinetic models for liquids and solids). More advanced topics in this section are nuclear physics, radiation and atomic physics and electron physics. The Chemistry section covers basic chemistry concepts, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry and physical chemistry.
Section B's first section is Zoology, which covers general topics such as evolution, organic evolution, animal physiology and classification. Topics in the Type and Specific Study section include arthropods, protozoa, porifera and annelida. Other topics you should be familiar with for the Botany section are the cell, ecology, cell differentiation, the study of life from angiospermic plant to seed formation and photosynthesis.
Be aware of fundamental topics, definitions and concepts for all subjects. Selected general subjects are listed here, see the UPCMET syllabus for further details.
