In the past session, Anna University released the TANCET 2023 results on April 14 for the exam that was conducted on March 25. Candidates are able to check the TANCET results on the official website.

Q:   Will Anna University release TANCET result and CEETA PG result on the same day?

The official website will host the login window to check the scores of TANCET and CEETA PG.

Q:   Which TANCET score would be used for admissions into TANCET MBA colleges? I have an actual score of 29.33 and a percentile score of 87.678.

Directorate of Technical Education, Chennai, only considers TANCET percentile score. TANCET actual score is calculated by allotting 1 mark each for the correct response and deducting 1/3 mark for each incorrect response. The actual score can be converted into a percentile score after evaluating the total test takers with an actual score that is less than a particular test taker. For example, Mohan has an actual score of 59 marks, and 95% of the total test takers secured an actual score below 59. In such a case, the percentile score of Mohan will be 95. Similarly, if 98% of the test takers had secured an actual score less than 59, Mohan would get 98 as his percentile score in TANCET exam. Further, DTE allots TANCET rank based on the percentile score of the test taker eligible for the counselling process.

TANCET Result 2024: What is Normalisation of Marks?

Starting the previous exam session, that was in 2023, TANCET exam is only conducted for MBA and MCA courses. The normalisation of marks is not required for TANCET MBA and MCA courses as the exam is held in a single shift. Candidates who took the Tamil Nadu state-level exam for ME/MTech/MArch/Plan courses, i.e. CEETA PG, will face normalisation of scores for first two parts of the exam. 

The normalisation of marks is done for ME/ MTech/ MArch / MPlan programmes only. The question paper of the entrance test is divided into three parts – Part I (Engineering Mathematics), Part II (Basic Engineering & Sciences) and Part III (meant for different disciplines). Part I and II are common for all programmes, while Part III differs based on the course. As a result, the mean mark and standard deviation vary as per disciplines in Part III. To bring uniformity in variations, marks of candidates are normalised. The formula for calculating the normalized marks is given below.

Formula for normalisation of marks: 

N= 40+(10/s) X (R-M)


N= Normalised marks

S= Standard Deviation

R= Raw marks

M= Mean marks

Note: TANCET rank list 2024 will be prepared based on the normalised marks.
