How to apply for Part time, TANCET I have 88 percentile. It would be good if someone can post parttime cutoffs and registration process also. Is it the same or we have different process?
you have not mentioned for which course you want to know as TANCET is accepted for MBA, MCA, ME/MTech. Mostly admission through counseling process is always a full-time course. part-time is given for those who are working and have years of experience.
You can do distance education which will be best option. for MBA , you will get good college option for part-time. There is less chance for MCA or MTech.
Here are some colleges you can choose for MBA:-
- PSG institute of Management
- Satyabhama institute of science and technology
- Dr Gr damodaran college of science
