VTU Conducts Supply Exams For Engineering Students

VTU To Conduct Supply Exams For BE
The Karnataka High Court directed the VTU - Visvesvaraya Technological University to hold the supplementary examinations for around 30,000 BE (Engineering) students who had become ineligible to join for third semester after failing in more than four subjects in the first and second semester examinations during the academic year 2011-12.


The court said that, It is for the very first time that the VTU will be conducting supplementary exams as its regulation have no provision for it. Those students who have cleared the required number of subjects in the supplementary exam as per the VTU regulations would be eligible to join the third semester, and the VTU would have to conduct additional classes for such students to make up their attendance requirement and loss of classes, as by then the regular third semester classes would already have commended.

The interim orders was passed by Justice Ram Mohan Reddy and also directed the VTU to notify all students (even those who had not approached the court) about it and issue the calender for conducting exam within a week. However, the court refused to extend the same benefit of students, who became ineligible for joining the fifth and seventh semester respectively as they could not clear the minimum number of subjects in the preceding semester as per the regulations.

The court took off this issue because the students had complained that there were inconsistency in the academic regulations governing the autonomous engineering college and the non-autonomous colleges. The petitioner students said that those studying in the non-autonomous colleges were at a disadvantages as VTU's regulations had no provision for supplementary examinations. Despite all these, they claimed that different sets of regulations for the same course were illegal.

However, the court has not ordered for conducting supplementary exam for those seeking admission to the fifth and the seventh semester as these students had not challenged the regulations when they first encountered it while joining the third semester.
