KEAM Marks V/S Ranks 2024

KEAM Marks V/S Ranks 2024: CEE has released the KEAM 2024 scores with the KEAM 2024 result on June 26. Note that initially, CEE has released the KEAM scores with the KEAM result 2024. This year, CEE has released the KEAM percentile scores after normalisation, as the exam was held over multiple shifts and days in CBT mode. Now that the scores are announced, CEE will soon open the KEAM candidate portal for the submission of 10+2 marks. Candidates must note that KEAM 2024 ranks will be allotted based on an equal weightage of 50:50 given to the score obtained in the KEAM 2024 Entrance Examination and the grade/marks obtained in the final year of the qualifying examination for Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry put together, after effecting the standardization procedure. Therefore, candidates have to keep in mind that KEAM ranks cannot be based on just the entrance exam scores. We have given below a rough estimate of KEAM ranks based on the past few years' data. Check for an idea and do not consider these as a final prediction.

KEAM 2024 Normalization procedure based on Percentile Interpolated Average Method:

Let there be K sessions and let Ni be the number of students appearing in the ith session

Step 1: Convert raw marks of students to percentile scores for each session separately. 

Let Xij denote the raw mark of the jth candidate in the ith session,

i = 1,2,.....,K; j = 1, 2, .....Ni. Then the percentile score of the jth candidate in the ith session is calculated using the formula:

The percentile scores will be calculated up to 8 decimal places.

Step 2: Compute the interpolated scores for other sessions

Q:   When will the authority open the KEAM login window to verify class 12 marks?

A:

The authority will open the KEAM login for submission/verification of class 12 marks online for those candidates who have qualified in KEAM . The dates for the same will be announced in due course. The KEAM rank list is prepared based on marks of qualifying exam marks and KEAM marks. The weightage of the qualifying exam marks and KEAM marks varies for rank lists PDF for Engineering, Architecture, B.Pharma MBBS / BDS / BHMS / BSMS / BUMS / Agriculture / Forestry / Veterinary / Co-operation & Banking / Climate Change & Environmental Science/ B.Tech Biotechnology (under KAU) / Fisheries and B.A. MS Equal weightage of 50:50 shall be given to the score obtained in the Entrance Examination for Engineering (Paper I & Paper II put together), and the grade/marks obtained in the final year of the qualifying examination for Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry put together, after effecting the standardization procedure.
