The two-and-half-hour exam consists of 120 questions in each paper. Each question carries four marks, and for every wrong answer, one mark is deducted.

Earlier, it was conducted for admission to both medical and engineering courses but now KEAM 2019 is held for admission in engineering courses only.

For admission in medical and allied health science courses, the students have to appear for the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET). For architecture courses, the candidates have to pass the NATA exam.
