KEAM 2020 Analysis – CEE conducted KEAM 2020 paper 1 and 2 on July 16, 2020. The Paper 1 for physic and chemistry was held in shift 1, which was from 10.00 am to 12.30 pm. Whereas, Paper 2 for Maths was held in shift 2, from 2:30 pm to 5:00 pm. The overall difficulty level of the paper was moderate to difficult. Physics was lengthy and difficult and on the other hand, Chemistry was moderate and had simple concept based questions. Maths was the easiest of all the 3 subjects. Sharing their experience of taking the exam in COVID-19 pandemic, students said that many centers had followed the norms however, there were some centers that lacked COVID-19 precautions.

KEAM 2020 Analysis
The analysis of KEAM 2020 can be summarized as follows:
|Physics||Difficult and lengthy|
Also calculation based
|Chemistry||Moderate and concept based|
|Maths||Easy and direct questions|
KEAM 2020 Analysis for Paper 1 (Physics)
KEAM 2020 analysis for Physics section this year is as follows:
Difficulty level: Difficult, lengthy and calculation based
Topics asked: Heat and Thermodynamics, Electromagnetic Induction and Alternating Current, Bridge and Resistance, Modern Physics Motion of System of Particles and Rigid Body Rotation, Oscillations, Laws of Motion, Electrostatics, Current Electricity, Magnetic Effect of Current and Magnetism, Wheatstone, Optics, Gravitation, Mechanics of Solids and Fluids,
This year the students found the physics section on the to be the most difficult among the 3 subjects. The weightage of class 11 and 12 was equal. There were 2 very difficult questions and 9 moderate questions. The rest of the questions were moderate to difficult. Physics was calculation based this year.
KEAM 2020 Analysis for Paper 1 (Chemistry)
KEAM 2020 analysis for Chemistry section this year is as follows:
Difficulty level: Moderate
Topics asked: S-Block Elements, P-Block Elements, D-Block and F-Block Elements, Ideal gas equations, Thermodynamics, Thermal expansion, Coordination compounds, Markovnikov reaction, Anti-Markovnikov reaction, Chemical Equilibrium Acids and Bases, Solutions, Chemical Kinetics, Redox Reactions, etc.
This year the students found the chemistry section on the moderate side. Most of the questions came from simple and direct concepts. The distribution of class 11 and 12 syllabus was equal in this subject too.
KEAM 2020 Analysis for Paper 1 (Maths)
KEAM 2020 analysis for Maths section this year is as follows:
Difficulty level: Easy
Topics asked: Relations and Functions, Permutations-Combinations, Co-ordinate Geometry, Complex Numbers, Quadratic Equations Sets, Binomial Theorem, and Mathematical Induction, Trigonometry, Algebra, Continuity, and Differentiability.
This year the students found the maths paper on the easy side. Maths was easier than last year and there were a few application based questions this time. Most were direct from NCERT books too and were concept based.
Students also claimed that this paper was the easiest among the 3. Also, they said that this section was not even much lengthy. The weightage of class 11 and 12 syllabus was equal. However, there were around 8 or 9 questions that the students found a bit difficult and the rest was easy.
