Since the number of seats is less and number of candidates wanting to take admission is high, it is necessary to have a selection parameter which is applied to delimit the number of candidates in the admission process. It would be applied on the basis of marks obtained in the qualifying examination.
Thus we can observe that basically, cutoff is applied to restrict the candidate count and thus acts as a shortlist factor. Those candidates who are able to cross the Cutoff of TNEA 2016 would be selected for the next round of admission process i.e. counselling and seat allotment. Another purpose of the cutoff is that it ensures only the best and most deserving candidates make it to the next round. We have compiled this article for you to know more about the cutoff, its application, and purpose. We shall also update latest figures of cutoff once they are released by the university.
Number of candidates, number of seats in each discipline of colleges, last year admission trends, exam difficulty level, marking scheme, reservation norms, and candidate to seat ratio – these are some of the factors that would be decided by the Anna University to decide upon cutoff score. It is to be remembered that cutoff would be issued separately for each course, institution, and category. Those who belong to reserved categories would get an advantage of the relaxed minimum qualifying marks and cutoff. To understand how cutoff is applied, we need to understand that it is applied on the marks obtained in the exam.
The candidates who are able to score marks more than or equal to the TNEA 2016 Cutoff would be selected for the next round of selection process. These selected candidates would thereafter be put in a merit list which would order them in the manner of decreasing marks. If a candidate fails to score marks even equal to the cutoff as set for a specific desired course or institution, he would be rejected from the admission process however he can still apply for admission in college which has a lower benchmark of selection. Each college would issue its own cutoff on its website.
