Anna University conducts Tamil Nadu Common Entrance Test (TANCET) to facilitate admission to the first year of the several Masters courses (MBA, M.Tech/M.E./M.Plan., MCA etc). The University avails the facility for candidates to opt to study under aided as well as self-supporting programmes.

This year, TANCET for the admissions to academic year 2017-18 for post-graduation degree in Business administration, Computer application and Engineering/Architecture programmes was conducted on March 25 & March 26 respectively. For TANCET-2017, the registrations had begun from January 29 and ended on February 20, 2017.

The varsity had seen the all-time high (preliminary data) in 2012 when 1,10,000 took TANCET and MBA aspirants being 59,000 out of the total. However, past two years’ data indicates that the demand for these professional higher education courses has waned in the state, at least for Anna University because in 2016, only 39,946 had registered and only 33,210 took the test, The same waning pattern was witnessed in 2015 when 54 thousand had applied and 49 thousand had appeared. Per experts, the market for teachers is saturated now which was good ten years ago when lots of college were being opened. In these times when unemployment is all-high, the issue remains large as a topic of discussion.

The varsity has not disclosed the numbers for this year till the date. The exam was carried out in two shifts on day 1 and one shift on day 2 and about 15 test venues were set up for the same. Over 20 thousand seats remain on offer for engineering & architecture aspirants under the colleges.
