From this year, the 60-40 examination pattern will be introduced for CBCS students for the academic year 2017-18.

Recently, a final year student of BTech in Visvesvaraya Technological University, Pulkit Chaurasia sent a letter to Karnataka Chief Minister asking for his intervention in various issues related to the varsity. "The already existing CBCS students will continue with the 80-20 pattern, there won't be any change for them".

"In other words, for students to write the 5th semester exam, it would be mandatory to clear all the subjects of the first two semesters", Deccan Herald report said.

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 made a decision to modify their critical year or year back policy and concepts for the academic year 2017-18. "Considering that many students sit idol because of the year back and critical year back system, it has been made a decision to allow them to attend classes", a VTU official said. Few students had to take up consecutive exams for 3 to 4 days.

The varsity has also chose to conduct weekend exams for those students who have back logs. The officials said they would not go with it as the Executive Council feels the quality of the system would dip. "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.
