Programme. • The candidate should not have completed 19 years as on 1.7.2014. (21 years for Lateral Entry)
Admission to the B.Tech. / 5-year Integrated M.Tech. programmes will be conducted under two streams.
Stream 1 (based on JEE(Main) 2014 and +2 Marks) for 70% of seats
Stream 2 (based on +2 marks) for 30% of seats
All the applicants will be eligible for both the streams and there is no need to submit two separate application forms. Normalization of +2 (or its equivalent) total marks: To bring all candidates from different examining authorities/ boards in the same scale of comparison and to create a list in the order of merit, the +2 or its equivalent total marks will be normalized. A first rank student of each board is considered to have obtained 100% mark and aggregate mark of all other students of the board is normalized with reference to that of the first rank student. For example, if the first rank is 97% and an applicant’s aggregate is 90% then the applicant’s normalized +2 marks is 92.78 (90/97x100).
Stream 1 Admission: Applicants under stream 1 will be admitted to 70% of the seats based on JEE (Main) 2014 scores and normalized +2 total marks. The weightage for JEE Main scores and normalized +2 total marks will be 25% & 75% respectively and applicants will be ranked based on the resultant combined score. For example: If a student secures a JEE Main Score of 185 and normalized +2 total marks of 95%, the combined score of the student will be (0.25*185) + (0.75*95) = 117.5
The combined score will be used to determine the SASTRA Rank and admission will be based on the SASTRA Rank secured by the applicant. Total seats in Stream 1 will be filled in the following method: (i) 20% (10%+10%) of intake will be offered to the students from Trichy and Thanjavur Districts, provided the applicant has completed both X and XII from any school located in Trichy or Thanjavur District. (ii) 50% of the intake will be offered to those who complete X and XII in schools within Tamilnadu (Puducherry included). (iii) The remaining 30% will be for students who have completed X and XII in schools in rest of India.
Stream 2 Admission: Applicants under Stream 2 will be admitted based on their normalized +2 total marks. This is for 30% of the total seats. A merit list is drawn based on the normalized percentage for making admissions for the 30% of the total seats. The Trichy/Thanjavur/Tamilnadu and All India categories will be applicable as per Stream 1. Note: 1) Applicants are allowed to attend counselling for stream 2 even if they are admitted under Stream 1 and can change branch, if they wish to.
For all PG programmes the admissions will be made on the basis of the scores in the qualifying UG / PG degree programme. GATE qualified candidates will be given preference for Engineering programmes and for MBA, students with good CAT/XAT/AIMAT/CMAT scores will be given preference. For all degree programmes in Law, admissions will be based on the CLAT-2014 Scores and +2 aggregate taken in the ratio of 25% & 75%. For all other degree programmes in Sciences, Arts, Commerce, Education, etc. admissions will be based on the qualifying exam marks.
Please note that the last date for receiving application for both Streams is June 7, 2014. Applicants are advised to submit application with results of +2 and JEE (Main) 2014 along with relevant photocopies. JEE (Main) 2014 details are mandatory (if appeared) for those who are applying under Stream 1. The applicant is advised to enter both +2 & JEE (Main) 2014 details in his/her own interest as they can attend both counselling using the same application form. If an applicant has not appeared for JEE (Main) 2014, for Stream 1, the weighted score for the 25% will be 0 but the +2 aggregate will be given 75% weightage to arrive at the combined score. However, for the Stream 2, the weightage for +2 marks will be 100%. This way, an applicant will be considered in Stream 1 & Stream 2 by default.
