KEAM 2024 Rank List for Engineering

KEAM Engineering and Pharmacy Entrance Examinations 2024 is conducted in Computer Based Test (CBT) mode; hence it is required to conduct the examinations on multiple days. Each session will have a separate set of questions. To ensure that candidates are neither benefitted nor disadvantaged due to the examinations in multiple sessions, the Normalisation procedure is adopted. The total score of the Entrance Examination out of 300 is normalized. The procedure for Normalisation has been approved by the Normalisation Committee. The Index Mark after Normalisation will be 300. 

  • An equal weightage of 50:50 shall be given to the normalised score obtained in the KEAM Engineering exam 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.
  • In case, the candidate has not studied Chemistry, the marks obtained in Computer Science shall be considered. In case, the candidate has not studied Chemistry and Computer Science, the marks obtained in Biotechnology shall be considered. In case, the candidate has not studied Chemistry, Computer Science and Biotechnology, the marks obtained in Biology shall be considered.
  • The final year marks of the qualifying examination of each subject Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry/Computer Science/Biotechnology/Biology of the students who have passed the subject, received from the respective Boards, shall be transformed out of 100. The marks of the three subjects shall be computed out of 300 after effecting standardization in each subject.
  • The normalized score obtained by the candidate in the Engineering Entrance Examination shall be computed out of 300 and added to the total standardized marks of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry/Computer Science/Biotechnology/Biology as the case may be, of the final year of the Qualifying Examination, computed out of 300, both corrected to four places of decimals. The rank list for Engineering Courses shall be prepared based on the total marks obtained out of an Index mark of 600, computed as above.

KEAM 2024 Rank List for BPharm

The rank list for Admission to the BPharm Course will be prepared on the basis of index marks calculated as follows:

  • The raw score of Chemistry obtained from the Kerala Engineering Entrance Examination will be multiplied by 2.25 and added to the Physics raw score obtained from the Kerala Engineering Entrance Examination.
