Engg Counselling To Follow AICTE Common Calender

Common Schedule for Engg Counselling
Students who are eager to take admissions in Engineering colleges no longer need to be distressed about different deadlines with regard to publication of class 12 results, date of entrance examination, exam centres, counselling sections and the most important the exact start of academic session.

 

The normal practice is that states follow different pattern of admissions for Engineering colleges as approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). For instance some state like Tamil Nadu have done away with any kind of entrance test, there are some who still follow the State Common Entrance Test (CET).

Moreover students those who follow CBSE Board or those from any particular state preferring to study in another state very often lost out because deadlines pertaining to admission process differed from one state to another. This resulted in students being admitted from first week of August to last week of September.

The notification sent by AICTE says "Strict compliance and adherence by all concerned." Though the dates are slightly ahead of the existing schedule for colleges in Tamilnadu affiliated to Anna University, the heads of the institutions have welcomed the common calender that streamlines all the processes that is 'In The Best Interest of the Students'.

The Schedule table is as shown below:

AICTE- COMMON SCHEDULE FOR ENGINEERING COLLEGES
EVENT Date  
Last date for grant or refusal of approval by AICTE April 10
Last date for grant or refusal approval by University/ State Government  May 15
Conduct of Entrance Examination (AIEEE/ State CET/ Mgmt. Quota exams etc) May
Declaration of results of qualifying examination (Plus II or similar) and Entrance Examination) Before June 5
First Round of Counselling/ Admission for allotment of seats Before June 30
Second Round of Counselling/ Admission for allotment of seats Before July 10
Last round of Counselling/ Admission for allotment of seats Before July 20
Last date for admission of candidates other than allotted above (Including all rounds of counselling)  July 30
Commencement of Academic session August 1
Last date up to which students can be admitted against vacancies arising due to any reason (no student should be admitted in any institution after the last date under any Quota) August 15

The 2-tier and 3-tier colleges, will have to start classes on 1st August, even though the ones who get selected in the final round of counselling (held on July 30) and in the management quota will take time to join these colleges.

Most of the college heads say that the success of the common calender will have to be seen from its implementation because it also involves including admission under the management quota in the 65:35 ratio and keeping in mind the medical counselling schedule that usually precedes the Engineering counselling in Tamil Nadu.
