Eliminate attendance requirement to students admitted under crash course

This petition had 535 supporters

    As we all are aware that around December 2016 VTU came up with a new scheme which was named as  Crash course . According to this scheme the students who had an year back can continue their studies by going through a 7 week course .The university expects the students to complete the entire syllabus which is vast  that even regular students couldn't complete their syllabus in a time duration of just 7 weeks. 


The university never bothered to check if their affiliated colleges conduct proper classes to those students . 

  • The colleges never conducted classes .
  • The colleges demanded irrelevant fees .
  • The student had to pay the complete fees for the whole year for which he/she has not at all attended .

Problems faced by students

  • Finds hard to complete the vast syllabus without any guidance 


Faults of the university

  • Didn't clarify when the exams will be conducted.
  • Didn't announce the results of such students in proper time . 
  • Didn't issue proper guidelines to guide the students whether they can attend the regular classes  
  • The colleges didn't permit such students to attend the classes as they were not eligible to attend the classes.

Problems which students are going to face in future

  • Need to pay huge amount for attendance shortage 
  • Need to take up previous semester exams 5th/7th continuously without any break .
  • Have to take up lab externals without any practical knowledge.

 So till now i hope i had made it clear . To prove my point of view right please refer to the link Crash course circulars

My concern is how can a student write 3 exams continuously without any time for preparation . When the student will be taking up the 6th / 8th semester exams the colleges will detain those students for shortage of attendance. Please avoid collecting fine for shortage of attendance  . Please  look from a student point of view and try to understand the problem faced by the student . Please look forward and modify the by giving at least 1 or 2 days off between 2 subjects. 

-Thank you
