VTU Offers Exit Scheme for Students with Backlogs


VTU Exit Scheme:  Visvesvaraya Technological University Had Introduced New Scheme for Backlogs to modify the ‘critical year’ and ‘year back’ concepts, introduced in 2010, to help students get their degrees easily. The decision was taken after meeting held on Tuesday by the executive committee and it will be implemented from the 2017-18 academic year. This move was supposed to be a relief for many students but on the contrary, it led to a protest from various student organisations as they demanded the rule to be scrapped as it was university’s fault that it announced the results late as well as delayed in the revaluation results.

H N Jagannatha Reddy, Registrar, VTU, said, students can enter final year even if they do not pass all second-year papers. However, students can write the exams only if they clear papers as per the earlier eligibility criteria. The existing internal and theory (20:80 marks ratio) has been revised to (40:60).

The students had also asked for introducing supplementary examinations for the Non-CBCS and CBCS students. The officials said they would not go with it as the Executive Council feels the quality of the system would fails.

“These move is expected to help nearly 20000 candidates.. The council and board of studies have decided that we can’t allow supplementary or cancel the year back system for CBCS students,” added Reddy.
