Anna University to release rank list

CHENNAI: Anna University will release its rank list for engineering admissions on Friday. The list would also be available on its website, the university’s Vice Chancellor P Mannar Jawahar said.
Speaking to Express, he said that this academic year, Anna University had received 1,48,000 applications against 1,65,000 applications last year. The VC attributed the decline in the number of applications to the delay in the distribution of application forms by the university. He said, “After the Plus Two results, there was a week’s gap before the university started selling the applications. So the students who didn’t score well, instead of the buying Anna University applications, opted to apply directly to private colleges.”
Certificate validation for sports quota candidates will be on June 28 and 29, followed by counselling on June 30. Counselling for vocational stream students will be from July 1 to July 6.
The date of counselling for disabled students has been fixed for July 7 and general category students will have counselling the following day, said the VC.
