The Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad (JNTUH) on Monday relaxed the credit criteria for promoting students of BTech and BPharma programs for the next academic year. This decision has been taken somewhat after the university students had protested against the university’s decision to revoke the exemption provided for in the last few years.
Earlier, the JNTUH officials had provided an exemption to cut-off students keeping in view the Covid pandemic. Now, students only need 25 percent of the credits to be promoted to the next academic year.
