The Commissioner of Entrance Examination (CEE), Kerala has announced the modifications done in the answer key of KEAM 2017 and the new score calculation method. The announcement has been made after the review of complaints received from KEAM candidates. The Expert Committees have examined the KEAM 2017 answer key and the required modifications have been made. Two questions in Chemistry and one question in Physics from Paper 1 as well as four questions in Mathematics from Paper 2 have been deleted. No marks have been awarded to any candidate for these questions irrespective of whether they have answered them or not. The committee has tried to do justice with a change in the score calculation which considers this new development. However students who have wasted their time during the exam trying to answer the questions are an unhappy lot. This is also the reason the committee has deleted the questions and removed them from the purview of KEAM score calculations. Read more to know all the details.
