The results came after a day's suspense. Officially, representatives of the web sites hosting the results were asked to come to the Examination Centre, Anna University, by 2 p.m. on Thursday to upload the results. However, as the university was a counting centre for the general elections, the process of releasing results was delayed.

The examinations were conducted on April 24 and 25 at 39 centres. Of 1,49,348 candidates who registered, 1,46,095 wrote the tests.

A total of 91,667 students appeared for the biology (including vocational) group examination as against 93,775 who registered. In physical sciences, only 1,41,272 of the total of 1,44,406 students who registered, wrote the examination. For mathematics 1,28,951students registered (including vocational) and 1, 25,140 wrote the examination.

The marks are available on the following web sites: www.annauniv.edu/tnpcee2004, www.tn.nic.in/tnpcee2004, www.guruathome.com, www.turningpointindia.com, www.tnagar.com, www.collegesintamilnadu.com, www.southindia.com, www.aspirelearning.com, www.chennaionline.com, www.thinaboomi.com.
