National Edu News

Chennai: Counselling for Tamil Nadu Engineering Admission is likely to begin on July 6, sources in Anna University said. Random numbers for candidates seeking admission into engineering courses through single-window counselling were released on Tuesday.

Random number, a 10-digit computer-generated number assigned to all the candidates, comes into the scene only when two or more candidates share the same maths, physics, chemistry, the fourth optional subject and date of birth.

In these situations, higher value (random number) will be given preference. Random numbers played a role in admission of 121 candidates in the last three years, according to official data.

Speaking to reporters after releasing the random numbers, state higher education minister K Anbazhgan said 19,000 more candidates applied for counselling this time compared to the previous year.

Certificate verification for all these 1.59 lakh applicants would take place between July 8 and July 14 at Tamil Nadu Engineering Admission Facilitation Centres (TFCs) setup across the state. In Chennai, the process would end on July 17.

After this, the rank list would be released and counselling would most likely begin on July 6 and dates may change according to medical counselling, the minister added.

A total 240 seats have been added in government engineering colleges this year. As many as 1.78 lakh seats are available in engineering colleges across Tamil Nadu this year.
