TNEA 2013 Cutoffs are the minimum marks as ascertained by the Anna University needed to qualify for admissions to the various engineering courses. The TNEA 2013 Cutoffs are determined by the number of applicants, intake per college/university and the previous year's cutoff. Students can determine the best course they can apply for, using the TNEA 2013 Cutoffs. Students can check out the previous years TNEA 2013 Cutoffs on this page to get an idea.
The TNEA 2013 Cutoffs for engineering are calculated as follows: Total Cut off marks /Total Marks (200 marks)
For example if a student secures 198 in Maths, 156 in Physics and 160 in Chemistry then the TNEA Engineering Cutoff marks for that students will be calculated as follows
Engineering Marks of this student
TNEA 2013 Cutoffs for CBSE Board students will be equated with the qualifying examination conducted by the State Board of Tamil Nadu using the Normalization method as follows:
Calculation of Normalization Marks = 100 x actual marks / highest marks of the same board
For example, a student scores 90 Marks in Math (CBSE) and the CBSE Toppers Marks in Maths are 95
Normalization Marks = 100*90/95=94.73648
Note: If the highest marks of a student (Tamil Nadu State Board) in a particular subject are 100 and the highest marks in the same subject of a student belonging to another board is 90 the highest marks for both the boards will be considered to be equal at 100.
The TNEA Rank list 2013 will be published by Anna auniversity on June 12 based on the TNEA 2013 Cutoffs, to be further used for Counselling for the TNEA 2013 Admisison process.
