The Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad (JNTUH) on Monday relaxed the credits criteria for promoting students in BTech and BPharma programmes to next year. The decision came after the students of the university had protested against the varsity’s decision to roll back the exemption provided in the past couple of years.
According to the official notice, the relaxation has been provided only for BTech, BPharm, PharmD and PharmD (PB) courses in the current academic year 2021-22 only i.e. promoting students to the academic year 2022-23. Earlier the JNTUH authority provided an exemption to students on cut-off for the Covid pandemic. Now, students need only 25 percent of credits to be promoted to the next academic year.
Students will need to clear all subject exams, and a maximum of two backlog subjects are allowed for PharmD and PharmD (PB) programmes. For Btech and BPharm programmes, students can have four backlog subjects.
However, aspirants of the varsity should note that this relaxation is only for the 2021-22 academic year students, and all the incoming students will have to follow the credit-based detention rules according to the “existing academic regulations in vogue/ as applicable to the respective academic regulations,” the official notification states.
