Grading of the B.Tech Exam is the determination factor on whether the candidates move to the next semester. A benchmark is created. If any of the students score below the level then they will be awarded the fail grade. This varies from 40% to 50%. Clearing of back papers in B.Tech Exams is also very important. In some places it is also known as allowed to keep terms (A.T.K.T). Though the students move on to the next semester they will need to clear the same. As per the new norms if the candidates have A.T.K.T. in the 1st and 2nd Semester then they will need to clear the same by 5th Semester. It is important that they do not have A.T.K.T. during the final year as it could impact their final placements.
