Important Notes :

* Duration of the (TANCET) Common Entrance Test is 2 hours.

* The Entrance Test question paper shall consist of three parts.

* Part-I and Part-II are compulsory and the candidates have to choose any

one subsection out of 14 in Part-III depending upon his specialization.

* Part – I (Mathematics) :

This part will have 30 objective type questions and the candidates should

answer all the 30 questions.

* Part – II (Basic Engineering & Sciences) :

This part will have 45 objective type questions and the candidates should

answer a minimum of 30 questions.

* Part – III (Specializations) :

This part will consist of 14 subsections for various disciplines,

like Civil, Mechanical, etc.. Each subsection will have 40/45 objective

type questions. The candidates have to choose any one subsection depending

on his specialization, and to answer a minimum of 40 questions. All the correct

answers up to a maximum of 40 will be awarded 1 mark each and for all the

wrong answers 1/4 mark shall be deducted for each.

The syllabi for the 14 subsections of Part – III are given below and the questions will be set at the undergraduate level.

The 14 subsections are :

* Civil Engineering & Geo-Informatics « Earth Sciences * Mechanical, Automobile & Aeronautical Engineering * Electrical & Electronics Engineering and Instrumentation Engg. * Electronics and Communication Engineering

* Production and Industrial Engineering * Computer Science and Engineering and Information Technology * Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Ceramic Technology and Biotech * Textile Technology * Leather Technology

* Architecture « Physical and Material Science « Probability and Statistics

* Social Sciences

Each question will have 4 alternative answers. The candidates have to choose the correct answer and shade the appropriate small open box against each question in the answer sheet with a pencil/ ballpoint pen (black or blue).Every correct answer will be awarded 1 mark and for every wrong answer 1/4 mark shall be deducted. No deduction will be made for questions left unanswered. Multiple shadings will be considered as wrong answer and 1/4 mark will be deducted.

Syllabus

Part I – Mathematics (Common to all Candidates) :

(i) Vector Calculus (ii) Determinants and Matrics (iii) Analytic function theory

(iv) Calculus and Ordinary Differential Equations (v) Numerical Methods

(vi) Probability and Statistics.

Part II – Basic Engg. and Sciences (Common to all Candidates) :

(i) Fundamental of Applied Mechanics (ii) Fundamentals of Material Science

(iii) Basic Civil Engg. (iv) Basic Electrical Engg. (v) Basic Mechanical Engg.

(vi) Fundamentals of Computers (vii) Fundamentals of Mathematics

(viii) Fundamentals of Physics (ix) Fundamentals of Chemistry.

Part III – Specializations

See the detail syllabi of various disciplines in the website.

Evaluation Scheme :

The question paper will have 15 parts. Part-I (Mathematics) has 30 questions.

Part-II (Basic Engg. & Sciences) has 45 questions. Part I and Part II are common for all the candidates. Parts III to XV relate to various disciplines such as Civil, Mech. etc. each part consisting of 40/45 questions. Candidate has to choose any one of the disciplines and has to answer all the questions in that discipline. The questions will be of scholastic aptitude type. While evaluating the answers, one mark is awarded for each correct answer and 1/3 mark is deducted for each wrong answer. However, no deduction will be made for questions left unanswered. Multiple shading will be considered as wrong answer and 1/3 mark will be deducted.

Normalisation of Marks :

The Entrance Test conducted for M.E./M.Tech./M.Arch./M.Plan candidates have Mathematics and Basic Engg. & Science as common parts and Part-III meant for different disciplines. On evaluation the mean (m) marks and the standard deviation(s) of marks (raw marks) may vary from discipline to discipline under Part-III to Part-XV. Normalised marks are obtained using the formula:

Normalised marks = 50 + (10/s) (raw marks – m).

This gives the relative ranking of candidates in any discipline.
