Rakesh R Shastri started this petition to Department of Technical Education Karnataka and

Students studying under Education Boards and Directorate of Technical Education (DTE), Govt. of Karnataka(GoK) are in danger of losing a semester and thus lagging behind their contemporary students from other Universities' Graduation and Diploma courses. Recently DTE and Education Board under GoK have announced that they will conduct the odd semester exams by August 2021 and the Even Semester Exams by November - December 2021. This decision of unnecessary delayed conduct of exams by departments associated with the Education Ministry - GoK and relevant board has landed the students in a very difficult predicament where they may potentially lose out on an Academic Year.

 

Final Year Diploma Students finishing their Even Semester (6th Semester) exams in December 2021 means many of them who have qualified and taken admission in All India Universities/Institutes viz. NIFT/IP University, New Delhi/Engineering Institutes in States other than Karnataka through Lateral Entry, will not be able to join the course and start the classes, which will be starting mostly by October-2021. This is a highly irresponsible, nonsensical and insensitive decision taken by the DTE, Govt of Karnataka to conduct both the Even and Odd semester exams and effectively delaying the final results of 3rd year Diploma students till January 2022, thus putting them in danger of losing an academic year due to none of their fault. This is a startling decision by the DTE, Govt. Of Karnataka, especially considering that CBSE and all the Boards from all other states including Dept. of Pre-University Education-Karnataka cancelling the 10+2/PU-II/Class 12/Higher Secondary Board Exams due to the pandemic outbreak and conducting the competitive Entrance Exams for Entry to various professional courses. The qualifying examination's (10+2/PU-II/Class 12/Higher Secondary) results are planned on the basis of Class 10/11 results and Class 12 Internal Assessments.

 

Keeping this in mind, we the students, faculties and parents of various institutes under Education Boards under GoK and DTE-K, request the Education Ministry, Govt. of Karnataka to look into the issue immediately and save the students from losing an academic year. All the Students would thus like to request to the ministry to consider cancelling the Odd Semester Exams, declare the results of Odd Semester Exams based on Internal Assessments and Practical Tests and conduct and finish the Even Semester Exams by September-October 2021, so that the Diploma students can join the Engineering courses (lateral entry) or Other Courses in time from the starting of the courses in October-November 2021.
