New Rules Are been Announced
Engineering students of colleges affiliated to Anna University who fail to clear the first semester in three attempts will no longer be able to enter the third year (fifth semester) and will have to redo the failed course with regular students (juniors).
The same applies to those enter sixth, seventh and eight semesters, say exam regulations released by Anna University.
The new rules will cover those joining from 2019-20 as well as those in the 2017-18 and 2018-19 batches.
But current students were given a one-year exemption after they protested saying they were not informed of the regulations during admission.
Students of the 2017-18 and 2018-19 batches can appear for arrears till the sixth semester but can move to the final year (seventh semester) only on completing all courses enrolled in the first semester.
The internal marks secured will be carried over for the above mentioned three consecutive semesters.
For lab courses, they can reappear for failed courses when offered next by the college concerned.
Until now, students could reappear for arrears any number of times with many clearing the backlog only in their final year.
From now, those not completing the engineering course in seven years will not be awarded the degree.
The aim, Anna University vice-chancellor M K Surappa said, was to improve quality. “Students can’t appear for arrears continuously. If one is unable to clear arrears in one plus three attempts, then he/she is not fit to be engineers,” he said.
However, there will be no ceiling on the number of arrears a student can appear for in a particular semester. The old rules restricted the number of arrears in a semester.
Each semester, a student can take seven core/elective subjects (worth three/four credits each) along with labs or employment enhancement courses (worth two credit points).
The most credits a student can register in a particular subject can’t exceed 36. Of this, 24 are consumed by current semester courses and students get only 12 points (maximum three arrears) for reappearance.
Those failing in even semesters (March/April) could reappear for backlogs only in next March/April.
The same applied to odd semester exams. These two regulations have been removed now.
