Random numbers for engg courses generated
Random numbers have been generated on Wednesday for the students seeking engineering seats in the state as the Tamil Nadu Engineering Admissions (TNEA 2021) registration closed on Tuesday.
Random numbers will be used to get a solution when many students score the same marks while ranking. The TNEA committee also announced that students, who have registered, could still have two days till Friday 5 pm to submit the payment online and upload their certificates.
Unlike last season, this academic year the certificate verifications will be made at student’s facilitation centres, which were established across the state.

“Applicants who have completed the registration and made payment can log in and check their certificate verification status,” he added
He said if the students have any clarifications or doubts with regard to their admission status, they could reach out to a nearby facilitation centre or even they could contact the official concerned over the phone or email address provided on the TNEA website.
The official said COVID-19 prevention protocols will be strictly followed during visit to facilitation centres.
“Names of all the co-ordinators and deputy co-ordinators, who were deployed in facilitation centres and their mobile numbers were also available on the TNEA portal,” he said adding “students could fix an appointment with them to visit the centre according to their convenience.”
Pointing out that the certificate verification would be done till September 3, the official said the merit list will be released on September 4.
“After a gap of a couple of days, the online counseling for special reservation categories would begin from September 7 to September 11,” he said adding “counselling for general category will begin from September 14 and go on till October 4.”
