Procedure of TNEA Rank List 2022 Preparation

TNEA 2022 rank list is prepared on the basis of marks obtained by the candidates in Classes 11th & 12th. Only the marks scored in group subjects such as Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry shall be taken into consideration. DTE will compile the TNEA 2022 rank list based on the marks scored by applicants in the qualifying examination's required disciplines. The previous year, the authorities cut the applicants' marks in Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry to a base of 200. Mathematics has a larger weightage, i.e. 100 marks, whereas Physics and Chemistry marks are combined and transformed out of 100 marks (Mathematics = 100 & Physics + Chemistry = 100). For each subject, weightage has been fixed, and the rank shall be defined as per the weightage. More details can be checked in the table below –

TNEA Rank List 2022 Normalization Process

DTE uses a normalization procedure to equalize the marks obtained by candidates in qualifying examinations from various boards. The authorities have compared the marks obtained by applicants from other boards with those obtained by the Tamil Nadu state board. Candidates can use the following example to learn the TNEA 2022 normalization approach.

For example, if a student's greatest scores in Physics from the State Board of Tamil Nadu are 100 and the highest marks in the same subject from any other Board are 90, both top marks will be deemed equivalent to 100. If a student from another Board receives 60 marks in Physics but the first mark in Physics in the same Board is 90, 60 marks will be deemed equal to 66.66 points as calculated below.

(100 x 60) / 90 = 66.66 %

Qualified students will be included in a unified TNEA rank list following the normalization of marks in the relevant topics in the qualifying examinations administered by separate Boards.

Procedure after TNEA Rank List 2022 Announcement

All the candidates who have been featured in the rank list will have to fill the choice filling form where the candidates need to choose the colleges and branches. Based on the TNEA rank and college preferences, the candidates will be allocated seat. A separate seat allotment result will be announced on the date specified by DTE Tamil Nadu.

After the seat allotment, the candidates will have to deposit the initial fee of Rs. 5,000 (Rs. 1,000 for Reserved Categories).

Tie Breaking Rule for TNEA Rank List 2022

If two or more applicants get the same marks in the qualifying examination, the authorities will prepare inter se merit. TNEA inter se merit 2022 will be prepared using the following rule:

  • In the event of a tie, the applicant with the higher proportion of marks in Mathematics will be ranked higher
  • If the tie remains, the applicant with the higher proportion of marks in Physics will be assigned a higher TNEA rank
  • If the tie remains, the applicant with the higher percentage of marks in the fourth optional topic will be granted a higher position
  • If the tie still exists, the applicant who is older will be assigned a higher TNEA rank.
  • If the tie remains, it will be broken using the TNEA Random Number. Candidates with a greater Random Number value will be ranked higher
