VTU reval rules and FAQ’s

Here is post for all your Reval queries, If you have any more questions regarding reval you can pass on a comment.

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.
