Admission Procedure

Stream 1 (based on JEE(Main) 2016 and +2 Marks) for 70% of seats

Applicants under Stream 1 will be admitted to 70% of the seats based on JEE (Main) 2016 scores and normalized +2 marks. The weightage for JEE Main scores and +2 marks will be 25% & 75% respectively. The aggregate JEE Main score and normalized +2 aggregate will be taken together as per the weightage and applicants will be ranked based on the resultant combined score.

If a student did not appear for JEE (Main)2016, they will still be eligible for stream 1 with 75% weightage on +2 aggregate alone.

The combined score of a student will be used to determine the SASTRA Rank and admission will be based on the SASTRA Rank secured. 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) 30% of the intake will be offered to those who complete X and XII in schools within Tamilnadu (Puducherry included). (iii) The remaining 50% will be for students who have completed X and XII in schools outside Tamil Nadu.

Stream 2 (based on +2 marks) for 30% of seats

Applicants under Stream 2 will be admitted based on their normalized aggregate +2 or its equivalent marks. This is for 30% of the total seats. 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 aggregate 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 applicants aggregate is 90% then the applicants normalized percentage is 92.78 (90/97×100). A merit list is drawn based on the normalized percentage for making admissions for the 30% of the total seats.

The Trichy/Thanjavur/Tamilnadu/pudcherry and All India stream will be applicable as per Stream 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.
  • Please note that the last date for receiving application for both Streams is June 11, 2016 Applicants are advised to submit application with results of +2 and JEE (Main) 2016 along with relevant photocopies. The applicant is advised to enter both +2 & JEE (Main) 2016 details in his/her own interest (this is for students who have valid JEE (Main) 2016 scores).
