The Tamil Nadu Engineering Admissions (TNEA) counselling schedule will be announced anytime soon by the Higher education minister K P Anbazhagan as CBSE NEET results 2017 has been declared.
There are several engineering candidates who are also eligible for medical seats on the TNEA list. The TNEA 2017 rank list for engineering admission counseling was announced on Thursday by the Anna University. TNEA counselling registration began on May 1 and ended on May 31. About 1.25 lakh candidates have applied for the admission this year. Out of the these, 88.77 are boys and 52.29 are girls.
The admissions was scheduled to commence for June 27, across Tamil Nadu for June 27. As per Anbazhagan, among the 6,733 top scorers on the TNEA list whose cut-off scores were in the range of 200 to 197, there are 5,376 candidates who are also eligible for medical seats.
Many of these students are also eligible for medical seats, there is a chance of them giving up the engineering seat if they opt for a medical one. This will result to difficulties later leading to vacancies in the top slots. So we will commence counselling once the medical results are out.
The Tamil Nadu Engineering Admissions (TNEA) is conducted by Anna University for all eligible applicants who wish to pursue engineering courses in the state of Tamil Nadu.
