Weak IIT students can exit after 3 yrs with B.Sc degree

Sep 28, 2019 10:40 IST

A proposal cleared by Union HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal 'Nishank' says academically weak students in IITs will now have the choice to opt for a three-year B.Sc degree instead of a B.Tech without dropping out of IITs midway. However, the govt has left to the individual IITs to work out the modalities. Until now students in undergraduate programmes in IITs were required to complete 8 semesters to receive a B.Tech degree. According to HRD Ministry, nearly 2,461 students dropped out from 23 IITs in the last two years, unable to face the cut-throat competition.
