VTU offers exit scheme for students with backlog

VTU or Visvesvaraya Technological University which was on the headlines for many days for the reason of delay in the university results leading to a hassle and harassment for the students, are again a subject of talk as the university has now brought relief for the university students of engineering by announcing that it has chose to modify their critical year or year back policy and concepts for the academic year 2017-18.

With the existing system, if a student fails even one subject in the first and second semester, they are not allowed to attend classes for the third semester. The decision was taken after meeting held on Tuesday by the executive committee and it will be implemented from the 2017-18 academic year.

According to the new scheme, the students would be allowed to attend all higher semesters from 5th to 8th semester but clearing the gate subjects would remain the criteria to write the higher semesters. "For this 60-40 examination pattern, the students will have to write a paper of 100 marks, which will then be calculated for 60 marks for evaluation".

According to a The Hindu report, all crash course students were now writing more than 16 subjects plus previous backlogs in duration of just two months. This applies to students, who have joined VTU from this year onwards.

Now, he added that, if any student has backlog, she/he will get even lesser gap. The students had also asked for introducing supplementary examinations for the Non-CBCS and CBCS students. Similarly, if there are back log subject in the second year, students will not be allowed to enter the fourth year.
