Re-Admission of Detained Students from OLD SCHEME to NEW SCHEME

The candidates admitted to B. E. / B. Tech. before the academic year 2002-2003 and detained in second semester have to repeat the whole semester with new course. In such cases,
If the students had studied his/her I semester with Chemistry group subjects will have to join II Semester New Scheme with physics group. However, they will have to study ELEMENTS OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING – MES14 in place of Elements of Civil Engineering – CIV23. Provision should be made to conduct MES14 theory classes and internal assessment test for these students by the respective colleges.
Students studied I semester with Physics group will be readmitted to II Semester Chemistry (New Scheme) along with the regular students without any replacement of subjects.

 

Rejection of semester results

A candidate if desires, shall reject the results of whole semester irrespective of performance of any individual subject. However, there is no provision for the rejection of results of any individual subject. Such rejection shall be permitted only once during the entire course of study.
A candidate can reject the semester results and can take readmission. In such cases, candidate should attended the classes and obtain new internal assessment marks. For such rejection application shall be sent to the Registrar (Academic) within 30 days from the date of announcement of results.
A candidate can reject the semester results by keeping the term attended. In such cases of rejection, Internal Assessment will not be changed. For such rejection application shall be sent to the Registrar (Evaluation) within 30 days from the date of announcement of results.

 

Not Fit for Technical Course – NFTC

A candidate who has not obtained eligibility for third semester after a period of three academic years from the date of first admission shall discontinue the course. However, the candidate is eligible for readmission for first year B.E./B. Tech. in any college of the University.
The candidate shall complete the course within a period of eight academic years from the date of first admission, failing which he/she has to discontinue the course
It implies that, any candidate not getting the eligibility for the
5th semester within 6 academic years or
