The first two sections (QA and English Language Usage) of the KMAT Kerala question paper has 50 questions and the last two sections (Data Sufficiency and Logical Reasoning and General Knowledge) have 40 questions each. So suppose in Quantitative Techniques section you got 34 questions right, 2 questions wrong and skipped 4 questions. So, your score will be 134 out of 200. Similarly, calculate the score of other sections. After the add all four to arrive at the overall raw score. For example, you scored 134, 144, 120 and 140 in four sections, then your sum total will be 538/720.
