Centralised Allotment Process (CAP)

The Centralised Allotment Process will be done through the Single Window System (SWS) to give allotments to the various courses and colleges in the State, based on the options submitted by the candidates who have been included in the rank list for the year 2018, prepared by the Commissioner for Entrance Examinations (CEE), Kerala.

This is a system of ‘Allotments through Online Submission of Options’. The options are willingness of a candidate who qualified with a rank in the rank lists of KEAM 2018 to join a course-college combination prioritized as per his/her aspiration and desire subject to the conditions specified.

CAP through which the Options are registered is a simple and transparent process of allotment to the Professional Degree Courses and it gives the candidate opportunity to exercise his/her options for courses and colleges of his/her choice conveniently in the order of his/her preference considering all those available to be chosen from. The allotments will be strictly based on the options exercised, the rank obtained and eligible reservations of the candidate. Candidates should register options only to those courses/colleges which they are sure to join on allotment. If the candidate fails to remit fee/join the college, he/she will lose the allotment as well as all the existing options in the stream to which the allotment belongs. The options once lost will not be available in the subsequent phases. When an allotment is given to a candidate, the previous allotments, if any, shall automatically be cancelled.
