### What is TNEA 2014 Random Number ?

The candidate satisfying all the rules put forth now and then by Government of Tamil Nadu will be described in TNEA booklet. The candidate should satisfy all the minimum eligibility criteria like minimum eligibility mark as per the Government of Tamil Nadu described in the TNEA booklet. One of the main eligibility criteria is the minimum eligibility mark and it is the sum of marks obtained in Physics, Chemistry and Maths divided by sum of maximum marks in Physics, Chemistry and Maths.

A merit list will be prepared based on the total mark of 200 which is called as cut-off mark. In cases where more than one candidate have got the same cut-off mark in the common merit list, the inter-se-merit among such candidates shall be determined in the order of priority as specified below.

- Percentage of mark in Mathematics,
- Percentage of mark in Physics,
- Percentage of mark in the Fourth optional subject,
- Date of Birth (elder will be given preference) &
- Random number assigned (higher value will be given preference).

Use of Random Number for preparation of Rank list will be very minimal as any one of the crieteria viz., (1) Percentage of mark in Mathematics, (2) Percentage of mark in Physics, (3) Percentage of mark in the Fourth optional subject, and (4) Date of Birth (elder will be given preference) would surely differentiate the students for the purpose of rank list though they have scored same cut-off mark.

Last year also out of total apppliations which is more than 1.5 lakh for TNEA 2013, only 20 candidates were ranked based on Random Numbers since they had secured same cut-off mark as well as they could not be ranked based on previous 4 criteria viz., 1) Percentage of mark in Mathematics, (2) Percentage of mark in Physics, (3) Percentage of mark in the Fourth optional subject, and (4) Date of Birth (elder will be given preference) since they had scored same marks for the purpose of Criteria 1 to 3 and also born on the same day.

### How to Calculate Cut-off Marks :

Prescribed Subjects for calculating cut-off marks of TNEA 2014 Admission are Physics,Chemistry and Mathematics.

Step 1 :

- The marks scored in Mathematics (the subject for which maximum mark is 200) should be divided by 2. For example if a candidate scores 195 marks in Maths then his / her cut-off mark of this subject will be 97.5 (ie. 195/2)

Step 2:

- The marks scored in Chemistry and Physics are to be divided by 4. For example if a candidate scores 190 and 195 marks in Physics and Chemistry respectively then his / her cut-off marks in these subjects will be 47.5 and 48.75 respectively (ie. 190/4 and 195/4)

Step 3:

- Now add the above calculated cut-off marks in Mathematics, Physics and chemistry. This would give a final cut-off mark for a student which is also called as Marks scored in prescribed subjects reduced to 200. For example the final cut-off mark from subject wise cut-off marks calculated in step 1 and 2 will be 193.75 (97.5+47.5+48.75)
