    I got admission through Higher secondary mark and common entrance exam conducted by state government. In fact, initially i dont know about the course. At first i came to know about the course after visiting to the Tamil Nadu Agricultural University for getting an application for admission. First when entered the campus the time for sale of application got ended and came back to home without getting application. The next few days i got the application form through postal and applied for the course. Later i was called upon for counselling and i got the only college left.
