The analysis of last ranks of allotments to the AYUSH and allied courses after the second mop-up counseling (phase 11 allotments) of KEAM 2019 has indicated a roll back of last ranks when compared to previous phases of allotments. It can happen as the mop-up counseling is restricted with conditional movements based on fresh options with limited number of colleges and vacant seats. It is observed that five courses namely B.Sc (Hon.) Agriculture, BAMS, B.F.Sc Fisheries, BUMS and BHMS had improved the merit position in allotments while three other courses continued the last rank trends. It is mainly because of the candidates aspiring for the five courses had not carefully prioritized their option registration at the beginning of the CAP. It issues warning to the aspirants the need of careful planning in option registration in any Centralized Allotment Process (CAP) of professional courses.

B.V.Sc & AH (5292) is continued to be the most preferred course, followed by BAMS (7333), B.Sc (Hon.) Agriculture ( 7336), B.Sc (Hon.) Forestry(9064) and B.F.Sc Fisheries (9888) . Candidates with last rank of 22291 received allotment in Self-financing Ayurveda Colleges under state merit. The last rank of allotment to BHMS course is 10180 while BUMS and BSMS courses had allotments up to 24840 and 26284 respectively at the close of second mop-up allotments.
