The B Arch rank order will be published on August 10 and counselling will commence on August 19."The state government has chose to make the engineering admission counselling process online from the 2018-19 academic year to avoid having vacant seats in good colleges and to increase the enrollment of students".

Chennai: The much-awaited counselling for admissions to engineering colleges in Tamil Nadu will commence at Anna University on July 17.

The HC had been told that out of 4.30 lakh students under the state board as many as 84,000 had appeared for NEET whereas as out of 4,000 students under the CBSE, a total of 2,000 had taken the entrance test. The MCI has stipulated that admissions to medical courses shall be based on the marks obtained in NEET and merit list prepared on basis of such marks and it does not distinguish between students from CBSE and State Board. "We will surrender 15 percent for all-India quota and the rest 85 percent seats will be reserved for state board students", Health Minister Vijaya Bhaskar had said in the state assembly ahead of the government passing the order. The selection committee, which is expected to release the rank list on Friday, will now be able to admit student exclusively based on merit in NEET scores.
