What is the NORCET Examination?

The NORCET Preparation 2024 (Nursing Officer Recruitment Common Eligibility Test) is one of most popular exam that takes place every year. The NORCET examination is conducted by AIIMS to recruit the nursing staff for AIIMS institutes. Since there are a number of AIIMS institutes available in India, they all conducts the NORCET examination in a combined manner.

Medical students could kill to get associated with the AIIMS. Just kidding! But, we can’t deny the fact that the NORCET examination is important as it will scale up anyone’s career to an unbelievable level.

AIIMS NORCET 2024

200 QUESTIONS – 180 MINUTES – AN YEAR’S WORTH OF PREPARATION AND CHANCE OF BEING SELECTED? You must be thinking, what’s the point of thinking about the chances? It’s all about how much we study. Well yeah! That’s partly right. But don’t you think understanding the level and dynamics of competition will also help determine your motivation level? Right? So let’s discuss that.

Nursing Officer recruitment Common Eligibility Test (NORCET) – the fancier the name sounds, the more challenging the competition. I don’t say this to scare you, readers. But NORCET is like a grand finale of a reality show that you wait for throughout the year! It the time for your year-long preparations to culminate into a successful attempt and bear the fruit of a job in a central government hospital.

 

AIIMS NORCET Overview

NORCET was first introduced in 2020 by AIIMS and helped in filling the nursing officers vacancy at AIIMS and any other central government hospital that announces to fill their vacancies using this exam. Based on the previous statistical data, around 1 lakh nursing students appear every year for this nursing officer recruitment examination. For the past three NORCETs, approximately 4000 vacancies were announced each year. With that, the probability of getting a job is almost 0.04. That means, out of every 100 candidates appearing for the exam, only four will make it to the final list. (Yikes…..that’s way too less!) I know you want to stop reading here, but please continue reading and assess the quantum of competition here.

AIIMS NORCET 2024

The AIIMS NORCET (Nursing Officer Recruitment Common Eligibility Test) stands as a pivotal gateway for individuals aspiring to secure nursing positions within the distinguished All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) network. This comprehensive examination, scheduled for 2024, serves as a standardized platform to identify and select highly skilled nursing professionals.

NORCET evaluates candidates based on their knowledge, aptitude, and clinical expertise, ensuring that successful individuals possess the essential competencies required for delivering exceptional patient care. The examination encompasses multiple-choice questions covering a spectrum of nursing disciplines, including fundamentals, medical-surgical, paediatric, obstetric, and community health nursing.

The successful clearance of AIIMS NORCET 2024 not only opens avenues for a fulfilling career but also offers an opportunity to contribute to the healthcare excellence synonymous with AIIMS institutions. The rigorous nature of the examination underscores AIIMS’s commitment to upholding elevated standards in nursing services. Prospective candidates engaging in this competitive selection process undergo assessment that emphasizes both theoretical understanding and practical application, aligning with AIIMS’s mission to continually enhance healthcare services. This 2024 edition of NORCET embodies AIIMS’s dedication to sourcing top-tier nursing professionals for its healthcare initiatives nationwide.

Below there’s a table of percentile cut-offs of qualified candidates for 2021 and 2022:

If you observe the trend, the cut-off has somewhat decreased for all the categories of candidates, but the fact remains – Simply qualifying for the exam is not enough. You need to be at the top to bag a job! And then you question to what rank candidates get a job. So in the tables below, I have summarised the last ranks (year and category-wise) till which the candidate got the job in the first round of counselling:

If we look into the non-PwBD category and compare 2020 and 2022 outcomes, we will see that the cut-off rank has gone high in most categories, signifying increasing competition. The above cut-off ranks are only for the AIIMS institutes; the competition for central government hospitals like LHMC & SSKH, KSCH, Dr. RML Hospital, and Safdarjung hospital is even higher.

These are the facts and figures of the most awaited nursing recruitment exam. After going through the above tables, a few of you might have thought it’s time to gear up and double our preparation. On the other hand, the majority of you might have started having second thoughts about your career choice. To the latter group, I want to say, PEACE OUT, PEOPLE! No field is devoid of competition. No matter your career choice, you would have faced the same cutthroat competition everywhere. So what can be done now?

Let’s understand the characteristics of the candidates attempting the NORCET!

1. Females have the upper hand here: yeah yeah…..80:20 rule! Can you do something about it? Nada. It’s a factor that can’t be controlled (as of now). But for the male candidates, I would like to say that since you can’t handle this factor, it would be better to focus on the preparation part.

2. The “reappearing” gang: a section of the candidate appearing in the exam already have a job but are applying again either only for the sense of competition or to get a centre in or near their home state. So a majority of this section ends up leaving the seat after the result because they didn’t get what they needed, and the minority section ends up accepting the seat creating a vacancy for the next NORCET.

3. The educational difference: As you all know, the NORCET can be given by B.Sc. graduates (without any clinical experience) and GNM diploma holders after two years of experience in a 50 bedded hospital. The following point is not to undermine the GNM candidates but to give them a reality check! B.Sc. graduates have more theoretical knowledge than GNM candidates since their syllabus is more extensive. And since NORCET tests more of your knowledge, GNM candidates need to level up their preparation game more when compared to the B.Sc. Nursing graduates.

  1. The freshers and oldies: the fresh pass-outs have more chance of qualifying for the exams when compared to the experience holders. I still remember that during the induction program of 20 Nursing officers, 18 passed their eligibility degree in that year or a year before. So my advice to the old pass outs is that you can still make it. Just keep yourself updated with current knowledge. All you need is consistent effort!

What are the Techniques to Crack the NORCET Examination 2021?

Let’s not get frightened and disheartened about the preparation of the upcoming NORCET examination. You are a lion, just roar and get through all this with a shrill cry. So, without any further ado, let’s just get our hands on those 5 magical techniques which can help you prepare efficaciously for the NORCET examination.

  1. “Divide and Rule Technique”

Let’s all hail the one who propounded this famous rule- “Divide and rule”. As much as this rule has some negative terms linked to it, one can also use it positively. From examination point of view, students can use this rule in dividing their syllabus and then dividing the chapters as per their convenience.

  • First, divide your syllabus into three categories- the most difficult subjects, moderately difficult subjects and then easy subjects. Keep aside the easy subjects for a while, and pick up the most difficult and moderately difficult subjects.
  • Then divide the chapters of these two types of subjects into the same categories. Keep the easy chapters aside and make a timetable firstly for the most difficult chapters and then for the moderately difficult chapters. 
  • Try to prepare the difficult chapters in the morning (or in the night if you are a night person), and pick up the moderately difficult chapters later in the day any time.
  • You can easily prepare the easiest subjects maybe a day or two before the examination, but it’s always the difficult ones that stand as a hurdle in the preparation of any examination. So, it’s better to keep them covered in the beginning only.

“Divide your syllabus and rule over your preparation!”

  1. “Write, Learn and Conquer Technique”

This technique is the most tried and tested technique so far. In order to keep what you are learning in your mind for a long period of time, you will have to learn it by writing. This will also help you practice for your written examination, if any. What you have to do is to learn the answers or whatever you are learning by writing them simultaneously on a piece of paper. When you learn by writing, the information gets jot down in your mind automatically.

“Mark the information on your mind forever!”

  1. “A Little Drops of Water and Ocean Technique”

Now, it is obvious that there is a lot to learn and remember but if you will force your brain to eat the entire syllabus in one or two days, you will end up learning nothing. Like a little drops of water make an entire ocean one day, just like that you will have to learn your syllabus bit by bit daily. Learn little but learn effective. Check out the previous years’ papers and find out what are the important chapters and how much percentage of questions they make in the examination.

“Fill up the ocean of your mind with information bit by bit!”

  1. “Learn and Revise the Next Day Technique”

As mentioned above that you need to learn a little but effective, after learning a little but significant amount of information, you need to revise it quickly the next day in the morning. Before starting the new chapter, just give a few minutes to yourself to revise what you had learned yesterday. This technique will help you deep root the information you are gaining each day.

“Revision makes a man’s brain better and information stronger!”

  1. “Gift Yourself the Variety Technique”

If you think that eating pizza daily for three times is cool and you will never get bored of it, then you have misapprehended it. In one day only, you are going to start hating pizza. Similarly, if you will keep studying the same subject for the entire day, you will lose interest in it and you will not want to prepare it further. You need to include at least three subjects in your day so that you can prepare them individually and effectively. Unless you do this, you are just going to wander aimlessly amongst your syllabus.

“Give your brain a variety of subjects to eat and increase its productivity!”
