Candidates who took the TANCET 2017 exam on March 27, 2017 must be eager to check the answer keys so as to get an idea as to how many marks they would score in the test. However, it’s not clear if the University will even release TANCET 2017 answer key or not. If yes, then the candidates may use the Answer key to compare their answers to estimate their probable scores and admission chances for the M.B.A, M.E./M.Tech./, M.Arch./M.Plan/M.C.A courses in Tamil Nadu.
TANCET exam was conducted in 15 disciplines on March 26, 2017. For all the candidates, Section I & II of the question paper was mandatory while section III was optional as opted by the candidates based on their graduating disciplines. The first two sections covered the Engineering Mathematics and Basic Engineering & Sciences.
Result – The result is expected to be announced tentatively in the month of April. And once the results are declared, soon the mark sheets of the same will also be available for download. Candidates must log in and download and must take a printout to submit the same during the counselling and admission process.
In 2016, the results was published within three weeks, so the same can be expected this year. Going by that, expect TANCET 2017 results around third week of April.
Rank card – The TANCET Rank will be based on the marks obtained by the candidates after the normalisation. The normalisation will be obtained as per the following formula:
Normalised marks = 40 + (10/s) (r – m) where m is the mean mark and s is the standard deviation of raw marks which is denoted by r. This gives the relative ranking of the candidates in any discipline.
TANCET Cut Off – The cutoff for TANCET is the minimum score that has been obtained by candidates to qualify in the exam as well as for admissions to the various M.Tech courses. While the qualifying TANCET Cutoff will be determined by Anna University, the admission cutoffs for TANCET will be dependent upon the institute, course, number of applicants, seat intake etc.
TANCET Counselling through TANCA – Counselling for the admissions will be conducted by TANCA (Tamil Nadu Common Admissions). Admissions will be through two channels – one for the GATE qualified candidates and one for the TANCET qualified candidates.
Moreover the application forms will be separate for both these categories of students and so will the merit lists. After the counselling schedules are announced, candidates will have to attend the TANCA process for verification of their documents, seat allotment and confirmation of the admission process.
