AKTU / UPTU New 40 Marks Grace Rule in any Year or Semester


AKTU implemented a new 40 marks grace rule from the year 2016-17. AKTU was formerly known as UPTU officially announced the new 40 Marks Grace Rule in any year or semester from 2016-17. Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam Technical University (AKTU) or Uttar Pradesh Technical University (UPTU) imposed a new rule of 40 Marks grace, earlier it used to be 10 Marks Grace only.

AKTU / UPTU new rule of 40 marks grace will be applicable from this year 2016 – 2017 as per the media reports and now AKTU students can get 40 marks in any year or any semester. earlier only 10 marks grace a students can get in a year for one subject. But there is hurdle in 40 marks grace rule. The problem is that the student must get at leaset 15% marks to get 40 marks grace benefit rule. practically you must get 15 marks to get the 40 marks in any subject.

Explanation – AKTU New Rule 40 Marks Grace:-

  • AKTU students now can get 40 marks grace whch they can use in any sem or any year of B.Tech or other course. earlier students were onlu allowed to use 10 marks in any year.
  • For example if students fails or have carry paper/back in any two subject of say 7th sem then they can use 40 marks grace to pass the exam in that subject.
  • Example:- Suppose, if a student gets 20 marks in VLSI and 18 Marks in DCN then he can use the 40 marks grace rule to pass both the paper.
  • But there is a condition in 40 marks grace rule, the condition is that the student need to get at leat 15 marks in the exam to avail the 40 marks grace rule.
  • Now, in AKTU the syllabus and exam will be conducted in new Choice Based Credit System (CBCS).
  • In AKTU, from 2017 students will be only promoted and passed if he gets 50% credit that is at least 23 credits to pass the exam. So, He/She must get 23 credits to pass the examination.

Well, the new rule is definetely gonna help thousands of students of UPTU, AKTU, GBTU, MTU (lucknow & noida region) but for all those who have passed seems like it’s a depressing news for them 😉 :p So, from now onwards it will be easy to pass AKTU exam and it will help lots of Fail, PCP status student. Please note that getting 40 marks grace will make your status from pass to PWG.

  1. Dear Yatharth,

    If someone has already taken a grace in some other year (5 marks) and he wants another 15 marks grace , will he be benefitted?

    I read in some other site (UPTU Khabar) that if someone has taken a grace already then he comes under a 10 marks slab each year and not 40 marks slab

    eg: if 2 marks taken in 2nd year and student wants 15 marks to pass his first year then he cannot avail this benefit thereby his 40-2=38 marks go in waste is that true?

    • Yes, He/She will be benefitted because to new rule you can use your 40 marks grace in any sem. But let me tell you these are the media reports and the there is NO official circular about grace marks by AKTU on their website aktu.ac.in
      You can wait till August end for any notification.

      Also, we are in touch with the officials, once we get any update on this, we will let you know and update on this.

      Please have this in writing from your college if they are saying so and present it to the university they will surely take legal action against the colle

    • Exactly, I agree with Preet !
      Obviously, they are asking for money only, once the results are published no one can update the internal marks. We suggest you to contact University regarding this matter. Write an application and directly visit the AKTU university campus Lucknow, if you’re serious about this.
