I would like to pursue architecture.. But i have not given B.arch as an option in KEAM. But have registered for NATA. Is KEAM necessary for admission in GOVT. colleges in Kerala?
KEAM authorities does not conduct any separate entrance exam for KEAM B. Arch admission.
The Authorities prepare the KEAM B. Arch rank list by giving equal weightage to the marks obtained in the NATA entrance examination so you don't need to worry and you just have to score well in NATA.
