Papers/Subjects in the Entrance Examinations :
G.O.(Ms)No.153/99/H.Edn. Dated 22.11.1999 stipulates that the Entrance Examinations for Engineering and Medical/Agricultural courses will be conducted separately, each test with a relative weightage of 5:3:2 in Mathematics, Physics & Chemistry in Engineering Entrance Examination and in Biology, Chemistry & Physics for Medical/Agricultural Entrance Examination.
As per the Guidelines issued by the Council of Architecture, there will be a centralised mechanism of conducting a “National Aptitude Test in Architecture” (NATA), which is mandatory for admission to the 5-year B. Arch. Course in all Architecture institutions in the country, which includes NITs and IITs, Government institutions, Government Aided institutions, Universities, Deemed Universities and Private Universities formed by a Central or State Legislature and other Private Self-financing institutions. The CEE will not conduct ‘Aptitude Test’ for B. Arch. Course in view of the guidelines issued by the Council of Architecture.
(a) Papers for the Engineering Entrance Examination :
Paper I – Physics & Chemistry
Paper II – Mathematics
Each Paper will be of two and a half hours duration.
(b) Papers for the Medical/Agricultural Entrance Examination :
Paper I – Chemistry & Physics
Paper II – Biology
Each Paper will be of two and a half hours duration.
Candidates desirous of being considered for the entire Medical and Agricultural Courses, will have to write both papers of the Medical Entrance Examination.
Candidates desirous of obtaining admission to the Agricultural courses, except B.Tech. (Ag. Engg.), B.Tech. (DSc. & Tech.), will have to write Paper I – Chemistry & Physics and Paper II – Biology of Medical Entrance Examination. For being considered for B. Tech. (Ag. Engg.) and B. Tech. (DSc. & Tech.) they have to appear for Paper I – Physics & Chemistry and Paper II -Mathematics of Engineering Entrance Examination.
Candidates who wish to be considered ONLY for Engineering Courses [including B.Tech. (Ag. Engg.) and B. Tech. (DSc. & Tech.) under the Kerala Agricultural University], will have to write Paper I – Physics & Chemistry and Paper – II Mathematics of the Engineering Entrance Examination.
Candidates desirous of being considered for Medical/Agricultural Courses and Engineering Courses will have to write both the Entrance Examinations in full.
Candidates desirous of being considered for admission to the Architecture Course will have to appear for the “National Aptitude Test in Architecture” (NATA) and become eligible for inclusion in the rank list for admission to Architecture course. Candidates included in the Engineering rank list will not be considered for admission to B. Arch. course based on their Engineering rank.
Candidates desirous of being considered for Medical, Agricultural and Engineering Courses will have to write all the papers prescribed for the Engineering/Medical Entrance Examinations. Candidates desirous of being considered for Architecture course also should appear for the “National Aptitude Test in Architecture” (NATA) to be conducted by the ‘National Institute for Advanced Studies in Architecture’, an academic unit of the Council of Architecture, India.
Non – appearance in any Paper :
A candidate NOT appearing in any one of the relevant papers, in a particular Group (Engineering or Medical/Agricultural), will be disqualified, and WILL NOT be considered for ranking in that particular group.
In other words, appearance in the two relevant papers :
Paper I – Physics & Chemistry and
Paper II – Mathematics for Engineering,
Paper I – Chemistry & Physics and
Paper II – Biology for Medical/Agricultural Courses is compulsory for being considered in the respective rank lists.
Only those candidates having the prescribed minimum qualifying marks as stipulated under Clause 6.2.3 and having a valid ‘NATA’ score will be considered for preparing the rank list of Architecture Course. [Also see clause 9.7.4 (f)(ii)]
Appearance of a candidate in the Entrance Examination, or inclusion of a candidate in the rank lists or allotment does not entitle him/her for admission to a course, unless the rules regarding eligibility for admission, as laid down in the Prospectus under various Clauses, are satisfied.
Scheme of the Examinations :
The Entrance examination for Medical and Engineering streams will be objective type with Multiple Choice Questions and based on single response. For each question, five suggested answers would be given, of which only one will be the MOST APPROPRIATE RESPONSE. The candidate will have to select and mark the alphabet (A,B,C,D or E) corresponding to the most appropriate response in the OMR Answer Sheet. (A specimen answer sheet is appended).
The question paper for objective type examinations will be given in the form of Question Booklets. Candidates will be permitted to take the question booklet with them at the end of examination.
For Engineering and Medical Entrance Examinations, each Paper will have 120 questions to be answered in 150 minutes.
Scoring, negative marks: For each correct response in the Engineering and Medical Entrance
Examinations, the candidates will be awarded FOUR marks, and for each incorrect response, ONE mark will be deducted from the total score. For all these papers, in the event of failure to answer a question, (that is, no response is indicated against a question in the answer-sheet) no deduction from the total score will be made. More than one answer indicated against a question will be deemed as incorrect response, and will be awarded negative marks. Therefore the candidates are advised not to attempt an answer, if they are not sure of the response, because mere guessing may lead to choice of wrong answers, with the consequent penalty of negative marks.
