JNTU to relax credits for Telangana hit students

Hyderabad: Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad (JNTU-H) is planning to relax the number of credits needed by students to get a promotion to the next year. The decision was taken in view of the ongoing separate Telangana agitation in the city. While currently 50 per cent of the total credits (unit of marks) are required to pass from one year to another, for students who went through the Telangana turmoil, the required percentage might be just 40 to 45.

The university authorities have set up a committee to look into the damage on the academic activities on campus to decide on what should be the required pass percentage for academic year 2009-10. The exams of JNTU for the year are scheduled to be held from Jan 2 as they got postponed due to separate Telangana struggle in the state.

“We will decide the percentage of reduction only in 2010 depending upon the number of students who failed due to their academic disruptions. While the decision will be taken only in the next year, we assure the students that they do not have to worry about how the turmoil in the state will affect their grades,” said D N Reddy, vice-chancellor, JNTU, Hyderabad.
