Tamil Nadu: Applications for BE/BTech cross 1 lakh in 9 days | Chennai News – Times of India

CHENNAI: Nine days after the online application window was opened for engineering counselling, the number of online registrations crossed one lakh on Tuesday. As of Tuesday evening, 1,04,611 students registered online on the Tamil Nadu Engineering Admissions (TNEA) website to attend admission counselling.
As many as 74,309 students made payment and 56,935 students uploaded their certificates, officials from TNEA said.
Candidates can apply for the counselling till August 24.
“Many students wanted to join engineering courses through counselling due to low fees for government quota seats in the counselling. With more students scoring higher in Class XII board exams, most of them said they will get a seat in good colleges. This is one of the main reasons for the number of applications touching one lakh within 10 days,” said career consultant Jayaprakash Gandhi.
Colleges expect a boost in engineering admissions following better placements in the past year.
“Due to good placements and higher marks in Class XII, more students prefer engineering courses in good colleges. With still three weeks left, we expect the number of applications to cross 1.3 lakh,” said RM Kishore, vice-chairman, RMK Engineering College.
As per the schedule, the candidates will be assigned a random number on August 25. The engineering rank list will be released on September 4.
Based on the number of applications to counselling, the TNEA will conduct online counselling in four or five rounds. The certificates also will be verified online due to the pandemic.
Counselling for special categories will be conducted from September 7 to 11. The online general counselling will be conducted from September 14 to October 4. The supplementary counselling will be held from October 12 to 16.
