For students accepted beginning with the academic year 2023–24, the Kerala government has announced a reform to the annual price structure for medical, dental, nursing, and super speciality degrees. Both public and private universities around the state will use the updated fee schedule. It is crucial for applicants to keep this in mind when submitting applications to various universities because the change has occurred after a break of two academic years.

The significance of the revised fee schedule
From the academic year 2020–21 onward, the government last changed the annual price for professional courses at Government Medical/Dental/Nursing Colleges overseen by the State’s Director of Medical Education. The charge is raised once again after a lapse of two academic years. This modification is vital to make sure the institutions have the resources they need to maintain and modernize their facilities and offer students a top-notch education.
Process of Admission and Counselling
The Commissionerate of Entrance Examination (CEE), which was formed in 1983, oversees the counselling and admission procedures for courses in medicine, dentistry, nursing, and super specialties. CEE’s primary goal is to administer entrance exams and assign students to various professional undergraduate and postgraduate programmes based on merit and racial and ethnic preferences. By assuring open admissions for a range of professional courses each academic year, it also serves as an agency for the Keralan government. Engineering, architecture, pharmacy, law, medical, dental, ayush, nursing, allied courses, and super specialties are among the subjects covered by CEE.
