Tamil Nadu Engineering Admission (TNEA) is the process through which more than 1.5 lakh engineering aspirants get themselves enrolled into engineering colleges of Tamil Nadu through single window counselling This guide will explain the end to end process of Tamil Nadu Engineering admission.

|College Type||% of Govt. Quota|
|Govt. Engineering Colleges||100%|
|Self Finance or Private Engineering Colleges||65%|
|Govt. Aided Engineering Colleges||90%|
An overall State merit list will be prepared based on the cut-off marks from HSE subjects of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry to 200. In cases where more than one candidate have got the same cut-off marks in the common merit list, then the inter-se merit among such candidates shall be determined in the order of priority as specified below:
Therefore, in addition to the Maths, Physics, Chemistry, your fourth subject marks of Biology or Computer Sciences will be considered on bunching. In every 0.25 cut-off marks, there might be chances that so many students will get same cut-off marks. In that case, the inter-se merit among such candidates shall be determined in the order of priority.
The students can have overall rank and community wise ranking too. The student can opt colleges based on your community rank too. There will be separate community ranking is available for BC, BCM, MBC, SC, SCA, ST community. The percentage of reservation various communities will be as per Govt. of Tamil Nadu reservation policies. The merit list will be prepared on overall ranking and community based ranking for all students applied for Tamil Nadu Engineering Admission.
For CBSE students, the marks obtained by the students in the relevant subjects in the qualifying examination conducted by various Boards or Authority shall be equated with the marks obtained by the students in the same subjects in the qualifying examination conducted by the State Board of Tamil Nadu by adopting the method of normalization.
If the highest mark secured by the student of State Board of Tamil Nadu in Physics is 100 and the highest marks secured by a student of any other Board in the same subject are 95 both the highest marks will be considered to be equal to 100. If a student of the other Board secures 70 marks in Physics when the first mark in Physics in the same Board is 95, 70 marks will be considered to be equal to 73.68 100 x 60 / 95 = 73.68%

P = Physics Mark / 4
C = Chemistry Mark /4
2 (Total 200 Marks out of 600)
Maths = 181 ,Physics = 189 ,Chemistry = 193
Maths =181/2 = 90.5
Physics = 189/4 = 47.5
