VTU reval rules and FAQ’s A candidate can apply for revaluation of the answer scripts within 2 weeks from the date of announcement of results. The prescribed fee, at present, is Rs. 500 /- per paper. The applications for revaluation in the prescribed forms are to be submitted in the college with the prescribed fee within 2 weeks from the date of announcement of the results. All the applications of revaluation submitted in the college are to be countersigned by the Principal and a record of the applications is to be maintained in the college for future reference. The Principal shall send all the applications in one lot along with the D.D. for the prescribed fee to the Regional Office. After the receipt of the applications for re-totaling and for revaluation in the Regional Office, the concerned officials appointed by the Registrar Evaluation on the recommendations of the Regional Director or In-Charge Special Officer shall pull out answer scripts of the candidates who have applied for re-totaling and revaluation. After completion of the re-totaling of answer scripts, the answer scripts, which are to be sent for revaluation, will be given new code numbers and title page of the answer script is either detached or completely masked by pasting paper. Answer scripts, after given the new code numbers and after masking the markings made by the Ist examiner, will be kept ready for revaluation. The answer scripts for revaluation will be sent to a place of valuation or the examiners are called to the examination centre as per the direction of the Vice-Chancellor. The re-valuation marks shall be entered in a separate facing sheet supplied by the University for each answer script. The examiner will be supplied with the original scheme of valuation for the subject and all the marks shall be entered in to a separate marks list for all the revalued scripts. a) If the re-valuation marks are less than the original marks, then the original marks shall be retained. b) The candidate is given the benefit of the revaluation marks in full if the difference between the original marks and re-valuation marks is 5% or within 5% of the maximum marks. c) When the difference between the original marks and the re-valuation marks is above 5 and equal to or below 15 of the maximum marks, the first five marks are given in full and only 50% of the remaining excess marks will be added to the marks of the candidate. Any fraction of a number is rounded to the next full integer. d) The average of the marks of nearest two valuations shall be considered as the marks secured by the candidate. However, if one of the three marks falls exactly midway between the other two, then the higher two marks shall be taken for averaging. If there is any change in the marks after the revaluation, corrected statement of marks card shall be issued to the candidate.

VTU TIME TABLE 2010-2011
VTU revises Computer Science Syllabus, with the help of Intel Corp. Undergraduate students of Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU), mainly from the computer science and information science branches, will have a new syllabus from this academic year. The VTU, in association with Intel Corporation, has prepared a multi-core curriculum which the varsity officials said was aimed at integrating parallel programming at the undergraduate level to nurture future software developers.
The new syllabus will come into effect from the current academic year, classes for which commence on September 6. The VTU plans to revise curriculum for undergraduate courses once in every four years and once in every three years for MCA courses. M Tech courses will be revised once in two years. "The main objective is to have a useful and innovative institute-industry linkage,” said H Maheshappa, vice-chancellor, VTU. The students of all the branches would study the fundamentals of computers and C programming during their first year, said K Rajanikanth, chairman board of studies, VTU. MS Ramaiah Institute of Technology has trained the faculty members on the revised curriculum. Meanwhile, Intel has assured to provide support for the colleges who want to setup laboratories
VTU Introduces Online Evaluation To Cut Down On Bloomers Engineering students pursuing their PHDs needn’t fret over errors in their results anymore. The Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) has introduced online evaluation of answer scripts for its PhD students from 2010-11. On a pilot basis, VTU has already scanned the 750 PhD answer scripts.
If all goes well, it’ll be extended to MTech and MBA courses too. In fact, this leap could work wonders for the student community overall.
"Digitizing the answer script is a novel idea and the first-of-its kind in the state. This method saves a lot of time and is error-free,” said H Maheshappa, vice chancellor, VTU. Manual evaluation is not only time-consuming but leaves multiple scope for errors. "Sometimes, the evaluator would have overlooked a question or missed an answer sheet. There have been instances where wrong marks were awarded due to incorrect totalling. These kind of glitches can easily be curbed through digital evaluation,” Maheshappa added. According to the VC, in case of multiple solutions, the evaluator will have the freedom to decide. "Fraction marks won’t be awarded. Accidentally, if the evaluator gives more than the maximum marks allotted, the system will reject it immediately,” he said. The university is also mulling over getting evaluations done from other centres, besides VTU. This method will also allow the university to mail photocopies to students. HOW IT WORKS Once exams are over, answer scripts are sent to the university for scanning. The process take only a few minutes and the scripts get stored in the system. A software developed exclusively for digital evaluation helps the evaluator open the answer booklet with just a mouse click. Next, the screen displays a series of register numbers. The evaluator can have his pick. The question for the particular answer is displayed on the screen, along with the scheme of evaluation. This contains marks for each question and the format. For instance, definition — 2 marks, solution — 1 mark, etc. The board chairman designs the scheme. This concept also allows two evaluators to check the same answer script simultaneously. Marks are totalled digitally and sent to the main server under categories ‘evaluator 1’ and ‘evaluator 2.’ The final evaluator then draws an average out of the two. "In case of a difference of 15 marks or above, the third evaluator reassesses the script. If the marks allotted by him/her are closer to any of those awarded by the previous evaluators, then the average of those two are considered,” Maheshappa explained.
