Shubham Dhane 14th Feb, 2020


No there is no correction window for TANCET exam that means you have no option for making changes or corrections in your application form after the final submission. If your signature does not match with the signature you have submitted in the application from then it will be a problem. The only way is to sign the same signature you have uploaded in the admit card during the exam.

TANCET exam is being conducted by Anna University on February 29 on behalf of Government of Tamil Nadu. The exam is mainly for admission in Tamil Nadu colleges, hence the exam centres which are alloted are situated only in the state.
