The selection of the students for admission to colleges under Anna University will be done on the basis of TNEA counselling. There are about 501 colleges in Tamil Nadu and about 2.49 lakh seats across the state. Last year, a lot of engineering seats went vacant. As reported by The Indian Express then, only 83,296 seats against the allotted 1,72,940 seats could be filled.
The state government is planning to complete the admission process by October 15. Thus the first rank list will be released on September 7. After the publishing of the list, students will have to participate in the counseling process from September 17 to October 6.
From last year onwards, DoTE had come up with a unique way of resolving ties. If two or more candidates continue to have the same marks even after following normal tie-resolving process, If candidates secure the same marks in the exam, preference will be given to one who scores more in math. If the tie persists preference will be given to candidates with the highest marks in physics then optional subjects. Thereafter, the date of birth will be considered and the elder candidates will be given preference. If the tie still persists, TN engineering admissions (TNEA) committee will generate a random 10 digit number. The student having the biggest number will get preference over the others.
