The detailed counselling schedule for each day is available on the TNEA website. According to reports each student will be given 90 minutes for counselling session. The University has also advised students to check the names and affiliation of colleges before participating and choosing a college during the counselling session.
Anna University conducts TNEA which is a centralized counselling procedure for admission to BE and B.Tech. courses. Every year approximately 1.5 lakh students get admission to engineering courses through this Single Window Counselling process. TNEA counselling is done on the basis of marks obtained by a student in class 12th board exam. Earlier the university used to conduct an entrance exam for selection of students but the practice has stopped in the last few years.
