April 22, 2017, Evening Update:
There are some preliminary reports suggesting that VTU results 2017 for B.E. odd regular semester examinations may take more time to be out than expected, and previous reported. Even after VTU V-C said to TOI that results declaration will start in two weeks, in the hindsight, it’s highly unlikely that results are coming in next few weeks. For now, May first week seems the likely fit for announcement.
We’re digging more into the report and will update for you after officials’ comments.
April 14, 2017, 12:15 PM Update: Finally, Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) has provided some answers. Because as per a report, VTU results 2017 for Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) odd semesters declaration will start by the end of next week. Now we know recent reports has also said that results will be coming around 20 April and that still stands.
Talking to TOI, Karisiddappa, vice-chancellor, VTU has said that the process of publishing results on time was deferred due to the addition of crash courses which increased the quantum of work for evaluators. And since the evaluation of answer scripts was done manually after a ruckus, it only seems obvious.
The V-C further said, “VTU will first announce the seventh and eighth semester results and subsequently declare the rest. The entire process will be completed in 12 days,”. Going by that, it is safe to say that the results will now be declared on the late end of two weeks i.e., by the end of April and the declaration may go all the way upto May, with evaluation process and the results going further.
Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) declared the much awaited crash course results for fifth and sixth semester students on Wednesday evening (April 12). The crash course exams were held in December 2016/January 2017 and nearly 3 months have passed since the exams had concluded, including the regular semester examinations.
However, so far, VTU has only published the results of first to sixth semester students admitted under crash course/extricating program. The candidates can visit the official website www.vtu.ac.in and head on to ‘results’ section to check their results using their University seat number.

While the applications for revaluation of answer scripts by 1st and 2nd year students (crash course only) were submitted between March 28 to March 31, the option for 5th and 6th semester students will be available by the end of this week. As for the revaluation results of the crash course applications, the varsity has not notified anything. There is no dates fixed for the declaration of revaluation results (crash course).

Earlier last week, few of the local media outlets had pinned that VTU may start announcing the results of B.E. odd/regular semester exams on dates between April 10 to April 20. Well, it is April 13 and the only results we’ve seen are for crash courses.
Assumingly VTU 7th semester results and 8th semester results will be out next, maybe within 1-3 days but without any official consent, we won’t report. In recent times, we have witnessed VTU at least notifying about the expected dates of results but this year, it’s all a ruckus, making it hard to believe the reports from other sources and sometimes officials as well.
News on regular/odd semester results- here.
The varsity has left the students high and dry as ExamsWatch itself is receiving a lot of comments and e-mails from the students who have cited their problems. Many are edged out as they’ve unable to produce the marks sheet at their jobs and thousands are uncertain of the status whether or not they’ve made it to the next semester. It’s nothing new for VTU though as it happens every six months but the system needs to be changed. For a varsity with nearly 4 lakh students studying in various of it’s undergraduate programs in colleges affiliated to it, the varsity should take note of the problems students are facing. And in the times when we applaud and are proud of initiatives such as “Digital India’, and when every department and authoritative body is trying to digitise their systems, VTU is way behind and that’s not a good thing.
