VTU Year Back System Will Be Cancelled Or Not [UPDATED]

VTU Year Back System Will Be Removed or Not

The VTU year back or carry-over system is one of the real problem faced by the students studying in colleges that affiliated to vishweshwaraiah technological university. By the way, this is not the first time rumors spread on about VTU year back system. We hear this almost every year.

The students are pretty confident that this time around VTU is going to cancel the Year back system. We did ask them about the source of information they replied that their college principal told them but how accurate is this only time will tell.

Why should VTU year back system be canceled?

The year back concept does not exist in any other universities in India or anywhere else in the world. We all are aware that student is going to lose a complete year if they get a year back. Wasting a year only to pass a subject is entirely unfair.

Some of the other reasons this time are that the students currently studying in the 3rd year are the last batch to complete the 2010 scheme. If a student gets a year back now, then they have to study 2015 CBCS syllabus for the final year. The crash semester exam results will be published along with their corresponding 6th and 8th-semester exam. Crash Course students hardly had 15 days before they can write the regular examination.

What are the rules for a year back?

  • A candidate seeking eligibility for the 3rd semester should not have failed in more than four subjects of first and second semesters taken together.
  • A student is eligible for the 5th semester if they have passed in all the subjects of 1st and 2nd semesters and should not have failed in more than four subjects of third and fourth semesters taken together.
  • For 7th semester eligibility, a student should have passed in all the subjects up to 4th semester and should not have failed in more than four subjects of 5th and 6th semesters taken together.

Will VTU cancel year back system?

First, let me tell you guys a story. In the year 2012, some students filed a petition against the VTU year back system. However, the High Court of Karnataka ruled out the petition quoting “Students should know the rules before joining VTU or any of its affiliated colleges.”

In a recent interview, VTU Vice-chancellor Karisiddappa told that

I request students to go through VTU guidelines carefully. What students are asking is, allow them to appear for the next year though they have many backlogs. We cannot do it, and This is not fair on students part as well. If students have backs, it is a real burden for them.

So in conclusion, we all want VTU year back system gone for good. However, from the above statement of VTU Vice-chancellor, the likeliness of this happening is next to impossible. We do not think students who are signing online petitions on websites like change.org, is going help in any way too as we can find hundreds of similar threads on those sites written a long time ago. Sorry to disappoint, but we have to accept the truth.


Some group of the student are planning a rally and protest against VTU on August 18th. If you are against VTU year back system and seeking justice. We would advise you to join them and make it a successful one.

Students have reached out almost every media regarding the year back, and the response by media was positive too. Over 20 state newspapers and few provincial print media have reported this issue. Advertisements are posted throughout the city and also in the presence of some engineering colleges.


New update guys, now there will be two protests one in Chikballapur on August 17th. Next day that is on August 18th there will be rally taking place from city railway station to freedom park. The AIDSO volunteers and VTU students struggle committee members have done all the hard work. Now students just have to join in the protest.

Protest in Chikballapur was successful here are the details to join in Bangalore:

18th of August
9:00 AM
City railway station main gate, Bangalore.

Today there was a protest in Bidar at 10:30 AM from Bareed Shahi Hotel to Deputy Commissioner’s Office via Ambedkar Circle. On 23rd August the protest will be held in Vijaypur at the venue Gandhi Chowk.

The protest against VTU year back system was very successful all over Karnataka than anyone would have imagined. All the newspaper and other similar publications mentioned about this issue. There are still protest going on in few other remaining states. Now we have to sit back and wait for the response from VTU.

The response of VC after protest

For all the students who were asking about the response of VC on the year back system. We finally have an update this is what Vice Chancellor said that he will be calling a meet next week to discuss the demands of students. Intellectuals have promised to talk to concerned authorities, and Minister is favoring students.


  • Remove YB & Critical Year back System for 2010 Batch Students.
  • Provide Supplementary Examination for CBCS Scheme Students.

To pressurize, VTU students struggle committee and AIDSO have planned to hit the street. All VTU colleges bundh on September 1st. This is the movement for students to show their strength and stay united. Posters attached to every college entrances to spread awareness. Share this with every VTU students, It’s now or never!!

  • Date 26/8/2017 press meet in Gulbarga.
  • Date 27/8/2017 press meet in Davanagere.

Latest Update on VTU Year Back System

Today AIDSO volunteers officially contacted many college principals. If you want to check the list of colleges please visit our Facebook page link is provided at the end. Remaining colleges in Bangalore will be covered tomorrow.

Why did AIDSO contact all college principals and what are its benefits?

As we all know, in the previous meet with VC, he said that there will be an executive council meeting on 30/08 and all college principals meeting on 31/08 regarding our protests and what should be the measure to solve all these issues.
One thing which is surprising and unbelievable is that each and every college principals are disappointed with VTU regarding examination system and no supplementary. We have submitted the request letter to all these college principals, and they have promised us that they will stand with students in this regard.

Why would college principals support students?

This is the question, but the catch here is, this time more than 30,000 Engineering seats are vacant and most of the students either shifting to autonomous or other courses because of CBCS and no supplementary in VTU.
College managements are extremely disappointed by lack of admissions this year, and all principals and management are with us.

What should students do?

In order to put more pressure on the next meeting, we are calling for a statewide bundh of VTU colleges on September 1st, and no principals are opposing it.
Obviously, they can’t support it openly because of affiliation with VTU, but it is our right to protest, and no colleges will force you to attend on that day.
Now it’s your turn to abandon classes on 01/09/2017 and head over to Mysore Bank Circle Bangalore.

No student shall attend classes on 01/09.
Protest venue: Mysore Bank Circle at 9:00 AM.

  1. plz cancel year back system cbCs scheem other wise give supplementary exam to cbse students yearback is very cruel punishment all students are not be rich all are poor and middle class Weaste of a 1 year is the whole family will suffer for this so plz cancel the year back system

  3. Please cancel year back for cbcs ..I am suffering year back only by one critical subject … please help us …

  4. my dear children, nowhere in India in any university this kind of stupid rule is there. You guys write to the ruling congress party and also to ruling BJP at Center. Request them to cancel this year back. It is student’s head ache to feel burden or not. University’s rule is really weird. A student may prove completing all subjects in a single attempt. There could be various reasons for a student for backlogs-financial, economical, social, family, personal, travel, health etc., . So VTU should remove this kind of year back rules. It is not apt for VTU to harass the tender minds.

    Until the Government’s are questioned, these rules won’t change.

  5. Please cancel year back system for cbcs students if they have only one backlog only for that one backlog they have to waste one year ..don’t play with students life

  6. vtu has given 1 time exit scheme only for UG students of NON-CBCS, n not considered PG students.. its totally unfair, same as BE students, MCA students of NON-CBCS r also facing same problem of YB and v cant continue with new syllabus (CBCS) and its grading system is completely different from NON-CBCS.
    it vl b big burden to students if its YB nw.. plzzzz help PG students (MCA).. plzzzzzzzzz
    wasting 1 year for 1 subject is really cruel punishment

  7. PLZ sir kuch karo cbcs students ke liy,time jaa raha hai plzzzzzzzzz kuch kijiye…kuch bhi updates bhi nai dere aap.support karo sir CBCS students walun ap ki help ki zarurat bht zhaaa hai

  8. Please we also need justice.. please remove critical year back and year back also..plsss give a chance…plsss..even we suffered alot from exams… really…need to die…dtz nly one option I have left…I can’t show my face to ma parents…I haven’t yet told my parents..they have so many hopes from us..and for rv also I have arranged all the money.. don’t nw how much pressure we have…plsss do something fast as soon as possible

  9. Plz cancel critical year back system for CBCS scheme students. Also other wise all students will doing strike & rally. Give the opportunity for CBCS scheme. Plzzzz

  10. According to the latest update,VTU has again denied the demand of nearly 20000 non-cbcs students.at this point of time,i along with many who fought really hard towards the cancellation of the year back system feel like it all went in vein.Its like all the non-cbcs students are like coma patients,and the vtu has kept all of us on oxygen mask to extend the life without evening having the probability of coming back to life.Its of no use and many would prefer to rather first clear the exams,get the eligibility then join their 3rd or 4th year.

  11. AKshay sir plz help cbcs students we need only 1 chance plzzzzzzzzz sir do something for cbcs students tel vc to atleast provide supplementry exam for cbcs students. I have mental pressure bcoz of year back. My parents are very upset with my results this is do or die situation for me plz do something

  12. The difference between previous crash course system and this modified version is that ,in previous crash course system we were not allowed to attend the classes of current semester until we clear the eligibility criteria…..this time they have allowed us to attend the current semester classes…and the of current semester exams will be in Jan- Feb, after we clear our eligibility criteria for that particular year, from December exam… Instead of in May-June along with the upcoming semester subjects (like 7th and 8th together)…vtu has given us time to clear our backs but didn’t remove the YB….this is what I have understood from what I have heard…

  13. Akashy it’s better to do the bundh again wat VTU IS thinking already in Tamil Nadu one girl died because of the Neet exam again in Karnataka also u want to die the students like that ha if u won’t cancel the yb for both cbcs and non cbcs means we students will show our power and we know wat to do so just cancel the year back for both the scheme

  14. Akashy wat is going on in VTU u said yb canceled for NON CBCS right but the guy Paul is telling that the VTU didn’t cancel the year they just have modified the crash course what Is this what is the use of protest and bunch which we students did the VTU Vc is very clear so only he just modified the crash course see this is many students life or death matter so please cancel the year back for both cbcs and non cbcs students okay otherwise we students will show our power Akashy u please update proper details okay please brother

  15. Vtu is really intelligent…what I have heard is that if a student gets YB, he/she is allowed to attend the the current semester classes but will not be allowed to write that current semester’s final exam on December,but the student will write the back papers on December and if he/she clears the eligibility criteria for the current year, only then the student is allowed to write papers for the current semester….vtu has intelligently modified the crash course system…they did not remove the YB system…(for non-cbcs)..

  16. Sirr please remove this system…. for cbsc scheme also…… please sir one question if u removed only for non..cbsc scheme…. again if there entering in 4th r 3rd year.. again there r belonging to cbsc scheme Lly know sir. …. then y sir say….. please sir my humble request to u sir….. please remove the year back system for cbsc scheme also….. please bcoz ot this lly my future s there to get good job….

  45. Dr. M.vishweshvaraya introduced “blocks system” not” back system” if that genius alive today , then he would have say ‘ the year back system is bullshit, time is everything, if the students fail doesn’t mean they are dumb, it means they are not adjustable to theory work, for example ‘ a mechanic who works in a garage can fix a motor ,faster than a guy who studied it in books,

  46. Two days back I saw a circular in vtu website abt conducting a meeting on Sept 5…. Now they have take out that circular from vtu website!!! Some thing fishy going !!!
