BENGALURU: Visvesvaraya Technogical University (VTU) has come out with a temporary solution for year-back and critical year-back system. In the executive council meeting held on Tuesday it was decided to allow students to attend classes regularly, even of 5th and 6th semester. But to take 5th semester exams one must clear the backlogs in the first and second semesters.

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. “Considering that many students sit idol because of the year back and critical year back system, it has been decided to allow them to attend classes,” a VTU official said.
