CHENNAI: With over 1 lakh of students scoring over 150 points in the Tamil Nadu Engineering Admission Limit (TNEA), experts say students will face absolute chaos and confusion while completing their choice. The competition has grown dramatically, since last year only around 32,000 students scored over 150 points. For this reason, students cannot use last year’s cutoff numbers as a benchmark when selecting an institute.

Therefore, experts advise students to fill out as many choices as possible to make sure they get the college they want. Career consultant Jayaprakash Gandhi said 7,513 students scored between 190 and 200 points this year, up from 3,445 last year. “This time even a student with 190 points may not be able to get the place they want… The only solution is for the students to make a lot of choices,” Gandhi said.

He further pointed out that the Directorate of Technical Education should create a special video in Tamil and English to guide students through the process of filling in the choices. “Teaching students to pick a number of choices is the way to help them,” he added.

This year, a nearly 100 percent pass rate was reported in Class 12 to both the CBSE and the State Board, and the number of top scores has increased. The number of TNEA’s top scorers has also increased, experts said.

P Selvaraj, Secretary of the Consortium of Self-Financing Professional, Arts and Science Colleges, said: “As there is uncertainty about obtaining the preferred seat in your choice of university, many students will opt for admission through a management quota. ” The number of engineering seats in the state is greater than the number of eligible candidates.

“Last year around 50 percent of places in private engineering schools remained vacant, but this year we expect the number to drop to 25 percent,” said the consortium co-secretary. , TD Eswaramoorthy.

TNEA had received 1,74930 applications, but only 1,39,033 applicants were on the ranking list, with the remainder being deemed ineligible based on certificate verification.
