COIMBATORE: The Anna University, Chennai, which is the nodal agency for conducting the Tamil Nadu engineering admissions, has released details of the academic performance of private engineering colleges across the State, following the Supreme Court order allowing the varsity to publish the grading of engineering colleges whose question papers are being set by it.

Passing an interim order on a special leave petition filed by the Association of Management of Coimbatore Anna University Affiliated Colleges, the Supreme Court has directed the Anna University to exclude autonomous colleges affiliated to it from this ranking based on the pass percentage. Earlier, the Madras High Court had ordered Anna University to publish pass percentage statistics of all the engineering colleges affiliated to it.

The university has released the academic performance of non-autonomous colleges for November/December 2012, April/May 2013 and November/December 2013, based on the Supreme Court order on its website http://online.annauniv.edu/tnea.

“The pass percentage of each college has been arrived at, based on the number of students in all the four years appearing for the exam in a particular period. A number of students have passed all subjects,” said Anna University Vice Chancellor M Rajaram.

In the April/May 2013 examination, only two colleges registered above 90 per cent pass, and 29 colleges over 80 per cent. As many as 206 colleges got less than 50 per cent pass, 28 less than 20 per cent pass and eight less than 10 per cent.

In the November/December 2013 examination, ten colleges secured over 80 per cent pass and another 25 over 70 per cent. Another 333 colleges got less than 50 per cent pass, with ten scoring less than 10 per cent pass.
