Anna Univeristy to conduct TANCET

May 02, 2019

Anna University has announced that it will be conducting TANCET. It has also withdrawn its notification to conduct separate entrance tests for PG courses. This is in the wake of a fresh order issued by the higher education department on April 29. As per the fresh order, Anna University Vice-Chancellor will be the chairman of the committee and the director of technical education will be a member instead of a co-chairman.


"The higher education department has withdrawn the changes it had made to the coordination committee. Hence, we decided to conduct the TANCET 2019 and it would be the single exam for all PG engineering courses offered in Tamil Nadu," university officials


The first coordination meeting of the committee is to be held on Thursday. The university on Sunday announced that students have to write a separate entrance test for getting admission to the ME, M Tech, M Arch and M Plan, MBA and MCA courses.

Welcoming the decision, professors from Anna University said the government should have given the task of conducting online engineering counselling to the university as well.


Due to the difference of opinion in the reconstitution of Tamil Nadu Engineering Admissions (TNEA) committee, the vice-chancellor of Anna University resigned from the committee and Directorate Of Technical Education is conducting the online engineering counselling for BE, BTech courses this year.


"There are still doubts whether the DOTE can pull it off without any glitch as it lacked the technical prowess. If there is any confusion, it would affect thousands of students," professors said.


However, sources in the government said the task of conducting online counselling will be jointly undertaken by the DOTE and a private vendor.
