I wanted to say that the admission fee at Anna University for the B arch course is moderate. I feel it is reliable in terms of appropriate education-wise. I have completed the B arch course and now am working in a company. Also, I got a placement with a good salary package. Anna University admissions for B arch courses are usually provided based on entrance exam scores. I had appeared for NATA Entrance Exam, and then through the valid rank, I took admission over here through TNEA counseling .to get access, we must fill up the application form by visiting the official portal of TNEA followed by TFCs and the application fee charges around INR 500 for general and INR 250 for reserved category.

Through TANCET, I got to the university. Since it is a state university, there is no direct admission or management quota, and candidates are admitted only through merit. Compared to other colleges, the course curriculum here is the best one. The topics are equally handled and completed on time. TANCET followed by TANCA counseling will be held through which Anna University MBA admissions will be given. Regarding counseling, all decisions are made by the COE. INR 12 lakhs is the package offered last year by one of the top companies. Also, in Feb and March, MBA admissions will be made.
