In Kerala government Engineering Colleges, admission in courses specially for BTech program is done on the basis of score obtained in the national level or state level entrance exam plus you need to have at least 50% marks aggregate in your intermediate, the state level exam is KEAM, apart from this you can also seek admission on the basis of JEE mains score, another way is that you need to be the topper of your board if you want to take entry directly.

Aditya Kumar Student Expert 22nd May, 2020

Yes dear ,even if you fail your class 10+2 board examination in 2019 but pass it in 2020 then yes you will be eligible for KEAM 2020 Examination .

But yes as per eligibility criteria to be eligible you need to pass it with at least 45% marks in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics together. Physics and Mathematics are compulsory subjects while Chemistry is the optional subject and if you don't have Chemistry then in place of chemistry,marks in computer Science or biotechnology or Biology can be considered .

Adithi amarendra is it necessary to apply KEAM for NATA candidates If keam is not applied will me get admission in kerala for B. arch shall we get any another chance to apply for KEAM

Aditi amrendra Student Expert 14th May, 2020

KEAM B.arch offers admission into various participating institutes. Admission through KEAM B. Arch 2020 is purely based on the performance of candidates in NATA 2020.
Most of the B.arch colleges in Kerala offer admission based on KEAM and it only opens application window once in a year.But there are also many colleges in Kerala that offers admission directly based on your marks in NATA so you don't need to worry much.There are also lot of other good colleges that offer admission based on NATA score directly.

I hope this helps.
