Steps For TNEA Counselling 2020 Process

The applicants will be grouped based on their rank and each group of applicants will be allowed to participate in counselling according to their turn. TNEA 2020 will have four to five rounds of counselling. The applicant has to login into the TNEA portal by using his/ her user ID and Password (same as that used at the time of registration) for performing various activities in a particular round. The procedure for each round of counselling is as follows:


Applicants should pay an initial deposit of Rs. 5000/- for general category and Rs. 1000/- for SC/ SCA/ ST candidates belonging to Tamil Nadu, through online mode of payment (Net Banking/ Credit Card/ Debit Card/ Demand Draft) by using the TNEA portal, according to the payment schedule of the round. An applicant can participate in the counselling only after the successful payment of the initial deposit. Hence the applicant is advised to make the payment well in advance of the scheduled time.

Adding Choices

After successful completion of payment, those applicants in the current round can add choices to their list (in order of preference) to be considered for allotment by using the TNEA portal. The TNEA portal has provisions to add choices in multiple ways to the list in the order of preference (for more information visit TNEA portal). Applicants are advised to save the choices made at regular intervals.

  • Three days are provided to enter choices from the commencement of round (24 hours for the first two days and up to 5.00 P.M. on the third day).
  • A choice refers to a branch in a college.
  • The order of preference is the applicant’s priority of choices for allotment of seats ordered from the most preferred to the least preferred. For example, Choice number 1 will be considered the most preferred choice for allotment. If Choice number 1 could not be allotted based on the rank, Choice 2, 3, 4 and so on (strictly in that order) will be considered for allotment.
  • A format sheet for Choice Preparation is available in the TNEA portal and can be downloaded by the applicants from the TNEA portal. Using this Sheet, they can prepare the choice list from their respective homes. They are advised to be ready with the filled-in Choice Preparation Sheet before logging into TNEA portal for choice entry

Locking Choices

After adding their choices, applicants should lock their choices before 5.00 pm on the third day from the commencement of the counselling round. Applicants shall verify the choice list and reorder their order of preferences, if necessary and ensure that their choice list is in proper order before locking them. Once the choices are locked, the applicant cannot add to/ modify the list.

Applicants’ choice list can be rearranged and modified in many ways through the TNEA portal. After locking the choices, a PDF document containing the list of choices locked by the applicant will be sent to the applicant’s registered email with the generated integrity code. The integrity code is to prevent any further modification to the applicant’s choice list that has been submitted.

Tentative Allotment

After the locking of choices by the applicants, the system will, tentatively, allot the choice based on rank and the applicant’s order of preferences. The same can be viewed the following day after locking the choices by the applicants through their login.
