A. P. J.Abdul Kalam Technological University (KTU) on Wednesday (08/11/2017) decided to scale back the norms for the controversial ‘year out’ system for admission to higher semesters of the B.Tech. course.The decisions were taken at a meeting between varsity officials and student representatives chaired by Education Minister C. Ravindranath.

➥Currently, candidates should have 26 credits for semesters 1 and 2 in order to move from semester three to four.
Now it has been decided that candidates can move freely to semester 4 and that only for promotion to semester 5 would the 26-credit rule be applied.

➥Similarly, the provision that those moving from semester 5 to 6 should have 71 credits has also been modified.
It was agreed that students could move freely from semester 5 to 6. For moving to semester 7 students should have scored 52 credits. It was also decided at the meeting that the ‘year out’ system would be frozen for six months.
