For courses where Graduation or Diploma is required, the eligibility would be as per the guidelines of the registering University or affiliating body or by the Govt. of Tamil Nadu.

In case of a delay in getting permission, kindly submit the online application form within the stipulated date and send in the certificate later with a covering note.

The candidate will be required to produce the eligibility certificate at the time of registration for admission to the course if selected.
Computer-Based tests consisting of multiple choice questions are conducted in English (see examples at the end). Each question will have four possible answers. Your task will be to select the one best answer to each question. There will be ONLY ONE CORRECT ANSWER to each question. For all the Group A degree courses, an Aptitude assessment computer based test, consisting of 120 questions in General Ability including Speed and Accuracy and also a few questions on issues of current topical interest is conducted. There are 120 questions in General Ability in two sections. Section I with 60 questions to be answered in 50 minutes and Section II with 60 questions to be answered in 20 minutes. For the degree courses other than MBBS (BSc Nursing & Allied Health Science Degree Courses) there are 60 questions each in Physics, Chemistry and Biology (120 minutes total time)
or the Diploma courses, the examination in Science paper consists of 25 questions each in Physics, Chemistry, Biology and 15 questions in General ability. The duration of the exam will be 90 minutes.
For other courses where a background in science is not required, the non-science paper will have 90 questions including English, General Ability, speed and accuracy and a few questions on issues of current topical interest. The duration of the exam will be 90 minutes.
For courses which require a special paper, there will be 90 questions pertaining to that particular subject. The duration of the exam will be 90 minutes.
Since the possible answers for each question are provided, you may wonder whether or not to guess the answer for questions you are not certain about. There is no negative marking and hence at times it may be worthwhile making an intelligent guess. That choice is yours and you have to decide how close to the options you are.
In the computer based test for degree courses (MBBS, Nursing, AHS degree courses), credit is given for questions not attempted (those left blank). The credit given is equal to 1/5 (0.2) of the mark for that question. So your score will probably be more if you leave out the questions about which you know nothing. Remember, however, that a correct answer will be given one full mark. So if you have some knowledge of the question, and are able to eliminate one or more of the possible answers, your chances of guessing the correct answer increases. It may be to your advantage to attempt such questions.
