The deadline for submitting completed application forms for admission to engineering colleges under Anna University has been extended to May 31.
The forms will be sold and accepted till 5 p.m. on that day, according to a government announcement.
The sale of forms began on May 10, the day after the State Board Class XII examination results were released.
The earlier deadline to submit forms was May 26. However, the mark sheets for the Class XII examinations were only given to students on May 21, leaving only five days for students to complete their applications.
Also, as The Hindu had reported, students of other boards such as the CBSE had been anxious that their results would be released too late to meet the deadline.
In response to these concerns, the government has decided to extend the deadline till the end of the month.
