KEAM, short for Kerala Engineering Agricultural Medical is an entrance examination series for admissions to various professional degree courses in the state of Kerala, India. It is conducted by the Office of the Commissioner of Entrance Exams run by the Government of Kerala. Kerala Govt recently started a programme for KEAM Coaching named as PEECS.


Model of entrance test[edit]

The model of the published ahead of the examinations by the Commissioner of Entrance Examinations.[1]

Engineering courses[edit]

Students are tested on topics of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics taught in the 11th and 12th grade Kerala State Education Board Higher Secondary Examinations and similar boards and national boards such as Central Board of Secondary Education and Indian Certificate of Secondary Education. The entrance exam is in two parts. Part I is Mathematics and Part II is Physics and Chemistry.

Medical courses[edit]

This is similar to the Medical Entrance Tests conducted by AIIMS.

Architectural courses[edit]

Architectural courses according to the Office of the Commissioner of Entrance Examinations, Kerala as in clause 1.4b of the prospectus[2] is ranked based on National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA), conducted by the National Institute of Advanced Studies in Architecture (NIASA) as per directives of the Council of Architecture, India.

Dissimilarity of KEAM with other entrance tests[edit]

KEAM is probably the only entrance test series in India that is conducted by a State Government directly. In all other states, entrance examinations are conducted by a state run university. This is because in Kerala, there are various state run universities such as University of Kerala, Cochin University of Science and Technology, Mahatma Gandhi University, University of Calicut, Kerala Agricultural University and Kannur University. To these universities several colleges are affiliated who also take in students based on KEAM scores.

Engineering and architectural disciplines[edit]

The method of ranking has changed since its conception in 2006. In 2009, a new method of ranking students was proposed and put into practice in 2011 where the scores of the students in the entrance test and the scores of students in the 12th standard examinations conducted by ICSE, CBSE, Kerala State board, Other State board examinations was considered. The scores are then normalized to a set standard and then students are given a rank based on both the scores for the 12th grade examinations and common entrance examinations.[5] The colleges under the each universities have their choice to follow the KEAM structure in admitting students, however if a college participates in the KEAM allotment, the colleges should admit the student. KEAM Allotment occurs in the month of August. There are also 73 private colleges that participate in 2011 KEAM Engineering and Architecture Allotment.[2] In 2011 over 55000 students were admitted to Engineering Colleges by KEAM.[6] In 2011 additional 7 colleges were added[7] to the list making 80 private colleges and 37 Government and Government Aided colleges participating in government allotment. However a majority of colleges run by Christian management conducted separate admission tests and admitted many more students. Overall over 80000 students is expected to join in Engineering discipline in Kerala alone.
