Admission to B.Tech. / 5-Year Integrated M.Tech. Programme
Admission to the B.Tech. / 5-year Integrated M.Tech. programmes will be conducted under two streams.
Stream 1 (based on JEE(Main) 2014 and +2 Marks) for 70% of seats
Stream 2 (based on +2 marks) for 30% of seats
All the applicants will be eligible for both the streams and there is no need to submit two separate application forms. Normalization of +2 (or its equivalent) total marks: 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 total 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 applicant’s aggregate is 90% then the applicant’s normalized +2 marks is 92.78 (90/97x100).
Stream 1 Admission: Applicants under stream 1 will be admitted to 70% of the seats based on JEE (Main) 2014 scores and normalized +2 total marks. The weightage for JEE Main scores and normalized +2 total marks will be 25% & 75% respectively and applicants will be ranked based on the resultant combined score.
For example: If a student secures a JEE Main Score of 185 and normalized +2 total marks of 95%, the combined score of the student will be (0.25*185) + (0.75*95) = 117.5. The combined score will be used to determine the SASTRA Rank and admission will be based on the SASTRA Rank secured by the applicant. 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) 50% of the intake will be offered to those who complete X and XII in schools within Tamilnadu (Puducherry included).
(iii) The remaining 30% will be for students who have completed X and XII in schools in rest of India.
Stream 2 Admission: Applicants under Stream 2 will be admitted based on their normalized +2 total marks. This is for 30% of the total seats. A merit list is drawn based on the normalized percentage for making admissions for the 30% of the total seats. The Trichy/Thanjavur/Tamilnadu and All India categories will be applicable as per Stream 1.
