KEAM 2019 Exam Pattern
Papers and Subjects in the Entrance Exams
The Entrance Exam for Engineering courses will be conducted with a relative weightage of 5 : 3 : 2 in Mathematics, Physics & Chemistry.
There are two papers with two and a half hours duration for the entrance exam:
Paper I – Physics & Chemistry,
Paper II – Mathematics.
Candidates applying for admission to Medical & Allied Courses including MBBS/BDS shall have to appear for NEET-UG 2019 conducted by NTA and qualify as per the qualifying criteria mentioned in the Information Bulletin of NEET-UG 2019.
Candidates applying for admission to B. Pharm Course shall have to appear for Paper-I (Physics & Chemistry) of the Kerala Engineering Entrance Exam and qualify as per the qualifying criteria
Scheme of the Examination
The Engineering Entrance Examination will be objective type with Multiple Choice Questions and based on single response. For each question, five suggested answers would be given, of which only one will be the MOST APPROPRIATE RESPONSE. The candidate will have to select and mark the alphabet (A, B, C, D or E) corresponding to the most appropriate response in the OMR Answer Sheet.
The question paper for objective type examinations will be given in the form of Question Booklets. Candidates will be permitted to take the question booklet with them at the end of examination.
For Engineering Entrance Examination, each Paper will have 120 questions to be answered in 150 minutes.
Marking, Negative Marking
For each correct response in the Engineering Entrance Examination, the candidates will be awarded FOUR marks, and for each incorrect response, ONE mark will be deducted from the total score. For each paper, in the event of failure to answer a question, (that is, no response is indicated against a question in the answer-sheet) no deduction from the total score will be made. More than one answer indicated against a question will be deemed as incorrect response, and will be awarded negative marks.
