hope it would help.
I have 85% marks in PCM in state board, how can i get into a good engineering college and how much marks should i score in KEAM in order to secure a good rank?
There is nothing to do with pcm aggregate 85% percentage in state board as admission in engineering colleges would be totally on the basis of entrances . So you need to do really well in the entrance to secure a good college seat in the keam entrance.

I am a 12th undergoing student preparing for NATA should i write the Keam exam to get into govt colleges in kerala to get a barch seat
I would suggest you to appear for keam also just for a back up. You should have a back up with you so that if unfortunately you do not perform well in nata then you have the options of getting colleges in Kerala through keam. It is not bad to apply for more examinations, it just gives you more options to choose from and you would get a better possibility of landing into a good college.
