Anna University Admission Procedure

Anna University is a unitary type of University functioning in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. This University is the authority in Tamil Nadu for admitting students through counseling, every year to various Government, Government aided and Private Engineering Colleges. Some years back, the premises where now Anna University is functioning was known as College of Engineering Guindy and the same name now too continues to be.

At present, in Tamil Nadu there is no entrance examination for admission of candidates in various engineering colleges and hence based on the Plus two marks, the admission procedure is being followed. Students who have studied Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry are being called for counseling based on the marks scored in the Plus two examinations. The Marks in Mathematics are reckoned for 100 and the marks in Physics and Chemistry put together reckoned for 100. Suppose a candidate scores 200 marks he will the called for the counseling on the first day of the counseling session and so on.

As of now, in Tamil Nadu there are about 455 Engineering Colleges, which include Government, Government aided and Private Colleges. The fees structure in Government and Government aided colleges will be very less when compared to Private colleges.

Anna University normally during the month of April every year will notify through leading news papers and other media about the issue of counseling application form and fix a due date for submission of the filled in applications. And once, the last date is over, the Anna University will scrutinize all the applications and allot a random number. This random number is nothing but an identification number for each and every application.

And the next step is allotment of rank number to the candidates. This rank number will be helpful to the students to find where they actually stand in the counseling schedule. Once the rank number is allotted, the candidates will be called for counseling on the basis of marks. The counseling session will be about 4 to 5 sessions from 9 am to 6 pm with periodical intervals.

Students will be asked to bring some important documents such as their original mark sheets, plus hall tickets and a demand draft for an amount to be fixed by the government. The students can take along with them one assistant who can either their parent, friend or close relative for the counseling session in order to get some moral and physical support.

The counsellors will help the students in a fantastic way in selecting the branch and college of study according to the candidate's own decision and there will not be any discrimination whatsoever to the candidates during the counseling session.

Once the counseling session is over, the students will be given an allotment order, in which the branch and college of admission are printed and handed over to the students with a prescribed time and date.

The allotted college can not be changed at any cost. So candidates should be more careful and vigilant at the time of counseling itself in deciding their preference of subject and college. The government has given some preference to first graduate students and communal reservation is also followed in allotment of colleges.

I will come up with a new article on engineering college admission soon based on the feedback I get on this article.
