When I registered for TANCET, I selected the caste as ST but my original caste is SC. I have already submitted the application. Is there any way to change it and make the correction on TANCET Application Form? Will any problem arise due to this?

Asked By: Sreevidhya,
A Answer By: GetmyuniEnterprise

There's nothing you can do about it now.

Once the Application Form is submitted and the Admit Card is allotted, TANCET (Anna University) doesn't provide a window for corrections of any kind.

You must get in touch with the Board (Anna University) to get a good view on your options.

I am a candidate from Salem. But my exam centre to TANCET is allotted as Chennai. How do I change my Exam Centre?

Asked By: Krishnamoorthy R,
A Answer By: GetmyuniEnterprise

There's nothing you can do about it now.

Once the Application Form is submitted and the Admit Card is allotted, TANCET (Anna University) doesn't provide a window for corrections of any kind.

So, you might just have to go to Chennai for the exam or maybe wait for TANCET next year for an opportunity at Salem (Highly NOT Advised).

I assume you'll make a proper decision regarding the matter.
