The Office of the Commissioner for Entrance Examination, Kerala has amended the eligibility criteria for the professional course of Bachelors in Architecture or B.Arch. Earlier, the eligibility criteria in terms of academic qualification required the student to pass Class 12 with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, scoring at least 50 per cent marks in aggregate. But as per the new criteria, a candidate needs to pass the qualifying examination to be able to sit for the KEAM examination for the next academic year.
Revised KEAM Eligibility Criteria
According to the revised schedule released, the candidates are eligible to apply for the admissions to the B.Arch program if they have qualified class 12 with PCM subject or have qualified 10+3 Diploma examinations with Maths.
The decision was undertaken keeping in mind the adverse effects which the pandemic has had on the education of the country. The eligibility criteria being liquified down to passing the class 12 examination would keep nobody at a disadvantage. All the interested candidates will get a chance to sit for the examination; thereby, maintaining equality.
The KEAM 2020 counselling will be conducted online through a Centralized Allotment Process where all the shortlisted candidates will be eligible to participate in the KEAM B.Arch 2020 counselling and seat allotment process. Candidates are advised to keep visiting the official website for regular updates on examination, admission and counselling.
