TNEA Selection and Admission Procedure

The entire admission process of TNEA 2020 will be done through the counselling which will be based on the marks obtained by the candidates in class 12th or equivalent. The authority will publish a rank list of the candidates selected for counselling on its official website.

Seat allotment will depend on the rank and the order of preference of the choices made by the candidate. Therefore, choosing the right choices and ordering them properly is important.
