About TNEA



TNEA 2018 –The article is all about TNEA. The application form for TNEA 2018 is available now from May 3 to May 30. Anna University will conduct TNEA 2018 counselling for admission to UG engineering programs at participating universities tentatively in July. Since there is no entrance exam for the engineering admissions in Tamilnadu, admission to engineering programs will be based on marks obtained by candidates in PCM in the qualifying examination.

The 10+2 normalized marks of the candidates will be reduced to 200 and used to prepare a rank list based on which the counselling will be held. From 2018 onwards, the TNEA counselling is completely online, unlike past years when it was held offline. Candidates applying for TNEA can check the complete information about the eligibility, important dates, application process, rank list preparation, cutoffs and counselling in this website.
