The random number allocation in the TNEA counselling is a widely known process. But a few would have possibly dwelled into the Math behind this proces. And what's more, all this requires just your +2 Math!
TNEA 2014 aggregate mark or cut-off mark is the sum of Physics mark obtained scaled to 50, Chemistry mark obtained scaled to 50 and Maths mark obtained scaled to 100. Thus the maximum aggregate or cut-off mark is 200. The candidates are ranked based on the aggregate mark or cut-off mark. The ranked candidates will be grouped into counselling sessions ordered by rank and in turn each counselling session will be ordered rank wise.
Many candidates will have same aggregate mark leading to tie, which should be broken to ensure unique ranking
The following rules mentioned below are used to break the tie:

Let us plug in some numbers into this.
* (1) assumed that the events are independent, though there should be overlaps. (2) The marks is concentrated in the 150+ cut-off marks. However we assumed an uniform distribution.
Students should not worry about random numbers. Chances are minimal that you will end up getting a lower random number.
The random number assignment process is totally transparent. The TNEA 2014 Random Number will be published public in the web on the specified date before the media persons. Along with the random number, the raw data captured from the coding sheet of the application form and more other information obtained during the application form process will be updated. After random number assignment, the rank list will be prepared and published in the website within few days.
