Admissions to all programmes are strictly based on merit. Admission to the B.Tech. / 5-year Integrated M.Tech. programmes will be conducted under two streams. All the applicants will be eligible for both the stream and need not submit two separate application form. This application form will be considered for the both streams.
Stream 1 (based on +2 marks)

Stream 1 Admission: Applicants under stream 1 will be admitted based on their normalized aggregate +2 or its equivalent marks. This is for 70% of the total seats. To bring all candidates from different examining authorities/ boards in the same scale of comparison and to create a list in the order of merit, the +2 or its equivalent aggregate marks will be normalized. A first rank student of each board is considered to have obtained 100% mark and aggregate mark of all other students of the board is normalized with reference to that of the first rank student. For example, if the first rank is 97% and an applicant’s aggregate is 90% then the applicant’s normalized percentage is 92.78 (90/97x100). A merit list is drawn based on the normalized percentage for making admissions for the 70% of the total seats.
Total seats in Stream 1 will be filled in the following method: (i) 20% (10%+10%) of intake will be offered to the students from Trichy and Thanjavur Districts, provided the applicant has completed both X and XII from any school located in Trichy or Thanjavur District. (ii) 50% of the intake will be offered to those who complete X and XII in schools within Tamilnadu (Puducherry included).
