As per the latest KEAM 2021 notification, the engineering rank will be prepared by giving equal weightage of 50:50 to the score obtained in the entrance examination conducted by CEE for engineering and the total marks obtained in the final year of the qualifying examination in mathematics, physics and chemistry, after effecting the standardization procedure. However, in the wake of cancellation of board exams, CEE Kerala may scrap Class 12 marks weightage.

“Official sources pointed out that results declared through a process of normalisation of marks or lenient evaluation might not become an accurate indicator of the students’ intellectual capacity. Besides, the chances of delay in declaring the results could stall the entrance examination process,” reports added.

Kerala had earlier decided to conduct plus two examinations. The government has also increased the process of evaluation of answer scripts on a priority basis.
