    Stream 2 – Class XII Score

    Remaining 50% of seats shall be based on the normalised aggregate Class XII score awarded by the respective boards. Rank list shall be prepared based on this aggregate score and admissions shall be made based on the rank secured.

    All students shall be considered for both streams by default. If they haven’t written JEE, in Stream 1 there will be no weightage to that part and rank will be based on Class XII scores alone. JEE is not mandatory.

    The allotment of seats to students completing schooling at Thanjavur & Trichy (20%), Tamilnadu (30%), All India (with reasonable cap for major States) remains unchanged with special provisions for NE States and other special status States/UTs.

    For all PG programmes, admissions will be made on the basis of the scores in the qualifying UG / PG degree programme.
