Engineering College Admission: Random Numbers Allocated
Anna University has released 2014’s Random Numbers list of counselling for students seeking admission for engineering courses in the new academic year. The list was released by P. Palaniappan, the Minister of Higher Education, during a programme held at the Centre for Entrance Examinations and Admissions, Anna University, at 9.45 AM on 11.06.2014.
On behalf of the University, it was announced that students cold check their numbers on its website, www.annauniv.edu. Single window counselling for admission to various engineering colleges all over the state begins on June 23. 2-day counselling for admission under sports quota will also begin on that day. Counselling for general seats will begin on June 27 and end on June 28. The rank list of students is going to be released on June 16. Prior to this, the Random Numbers list was realised today.
Why are these random numbers given?
When more than one student scores the same cut-off marks, there comes a question of who should be given priority. After Mathematics, priority is given to Physics and Chemistry. But since it is very much possible for more than one student to score the same marks in all these subjects, the student’s score in the fourth subject is taken into consideration. If this too is found to be equal, then the date of birth is taken into account. The elder student is given first priority. If the dates of birth are also the same, then Random Number is taken into consideration. These 10-digit numbers are generated by the computers. The student with greater Random Number is given the first choice.
