examination which includes successful completion of your final year/semester without any pending
arrears/back logs during the entire course duration. Please note that all subjects mentioned on the mark
sheets should be taken into consideration while calculating the aggregate marks. For example, best of 5/6
subjects for calculating the aggregate is not acceptable as per the TCSL Eligibility Criteria. All subjects
mentioned on the marksheet (including languages, optional subjects etc) should be taken into
consideration for calculating obtained/total marks/CGPA. In cases where a candidate has completed both,
