(Academic) examination conducted by the Board of Higher Secondary Examination of Tamil Nadu, or any other equivalent examination thereto, with a minimum of 45% marks (40% marks for OBC / BCM / MBC / EBC / BT / SC-candidates) in aggregate, in the prescribed subjects, namely, Mathematics, Physics and anyone of the following optional subjects :Chemistry / Bio-Technology / Computer Science / Biology (Botany & Zoology).While candidates belonging to other state will be offered admission on the basis of JEE Main 2019 score.

Procedure For Determing The Merit Score

Admission is based on the marks secured by the candidates in the prescribed subjects of the qualifying examination (i.e. for H.Sc. Academic: Mathematics, Physics and any one of the optional subjects (Chemistry / Bio- Technology / Computer Sciences / Biology / Botany & Zoology) & for H.Sc. Vocational: Vocational Subject Theory, Vocational Subject Practical and a related Subject) and normalizing them by the prescribed procedure.

Equal weightage will be given to all the three prescribed subjects. In case a candidate has appeared in more than any one of the above prescribed optional subjects, the subject in which the candidate has obtained the highest marks will be taken into consideration for “Normalization” and for calculating the actual total marks in the prescribed subjects. Wherever separate marks for practical are awarded, the same will be considered along with the respective subjects, for arriving at the total actual marks.

Order of Priority for Tie Break

When more than one candidate has got the same marks in the common merit list (i.e. the merit list prepared after merging the normalized marks of candidates from various Boards), the inter-se merit among such candidates, for each course will be determined in the order of priority as specified below:

  • Percentage of actual marks in Mathematics
  • Percentage of actual marks in Physics

  • Percentage of actual marks in third optional (specified) subject
  • Total marks of all eligible subjects prescribed for the course
  • Date of Birth (Earlier born)
  • Random number assigned
