Scheme of the Examinations :
The Entrance examination for Medical and Engineering streams will be objective type with Multiple Choice Questions and based on single response. For each question, five suggested answers would be given, of which only one will be the MOST APPROPRIATE RESPONSE. The candidate will have to select and mark the alphabet (A,B,C,D or E) corresponding to the most appropriate response in the OMR Answer Sheet. (A specimen answer sheet is appended).
The question paper for objective type examinations will be given in the form of Question Booklets. Candidates will be permitted to take the question booklet with them at the end of examination.
For Engineering and Medical Entrance Examinations, each Paper will have 120 questions to be answered in 150 minutes.
Scoring, negative marks:
For each correct response in the Engineering and Medical Entrance Examinations, the candidates will be awarded FOUR marks, and for each incorrect response, ONE mark will be deducted from the total score. For all these papers, in the event of failure to answer a question, (that is, no response is indicated against a question in the answer-sheet) no deduction from the total score will be made. More than one answer indicated against a question will be deemed as incorrect response, and will be awarded negative marks. Therefore the candidates are advised not to attempt an answer, if they are not sure of the response, because mere guessing may lead to choice of wrong answers, with the consequent penalty of negative marks.
Valuation of Answer Papers:
A fully computerised system is being used for evaluation of answer scripts of objective type papers, using the Optical Mark Reading (OMR) System, and for the preparation of the rank lists and various merit lists. There is no provision for revaluation or rechecking of answer sheets as the valuation or scoring will be error-free. No correspondence in this regard will be entertained.
Publication of the Results :
The rank lists for Engineering, Architecture, Medical and Ayurveda will be published separately. The results will be available on the website “www.cee-kerala.org
” and on other websites to be notified by the CEE.
