TANCET 2020 Eligibility

Exam Date : February 29, 2020 To March 1, 2020
Result Date : March 12, 2020

The TANCET Eligibility criteria are specified separately for each program. The candidates have to satisfy all the conditions mentioned to be eligible to give the admission. If it is found in the later stages that the candidate is not fulfilling any of the eligibility criteria then, the university reserves all the rights to cancel or reject the admission of the candidate.

TANCET Eligibility Criteria 2020

To attempt TANCET and get admission in a post-graduate program, students must satisfy the Eligibility criteria framed by Anna University, Chennai.

Exam Eligibility

TANCET eligibility criteria broadly contain criteria for age, nationality, educational qualification and the like. Even before filling the form, candidates must be aware of eligibility conditions and then proceed further. In this segment, we have discussed the exam eligibility criteria in detail. Students will have clarity regarding the criteria after reading this section.

Academic Criterion

Each student taking the exam must have completed a bachelor's program (minimum 3 years program) with at least 50% in his or her aggregate. But a student belonging to the reserved category should have scored at least 45% in the aggregate marks. 

Candidates who have completed their courses through lateral entry mode are not eligible to take the exam. However, there is an exception for M.Tech and MCA courses. Aspirants who have done B.E or B.Tech through distance mode education or from weekend mode are not considered eligible to write the TANCET exam. Also, test-takers who have completed their degree without attending the 10th and 12th-grade types of education are not entitled to attend the TANCET exam.

Territorial Eligibility Criterion

As the exam is a state-level test, candidates belonging to Tamil Nadu are privileged to apply for TANCET. Interested candidates from other states of India can also apply, but eligibility conditions will be spelled out by the conducting authority or university.

GATE

Aspirants with a valid GATE score need not take TANCET. Those candidates can directly apply to universities and proceed for the admission process.

Age Criterion

TANCET eligibility criteria do not spell out the maximum age or upper age limit for students appearing for the exam.

Points to Remember:

  • Only if the above-mentioned criteria are met by the students, they can proceed further to fill the TANCET 2020 application form.
  • Even if one attempts and clears the TANCET exam, Anna University or conducting authority has discretionary powers to reject a candidate if he or she fails to fulfill every element of the eligibility criteria.
  • A candidate who has satisfied the eligibility criteria can fill the application form on the official webpage. Learn more about registration and form filling in the Application Form Details Section.
  • The eligibility criteria for the examination doesn't specify an age limit for candidates applying for the exam. i.e. there is no minimum age to apply for any course.
