Thiruvananthapuram: The results of the seventh and eighth semester B.Tech examinations of the University of Kerala held in May this year have been published. This is for the first time that the university has published the results in an interactive mode on its web site

The subject-wise marks of the eighth semester examinations can be accessed by keying in the examination code, the candidate code and the candidate's date of birth.

The marks are being displayed using the Anytime Information System (AIS) software developed by the University's Computer Centre and recently made operational.

Centre director V. Ajayakumar said here on Sunday that the AIS would display the internal assessment marks and the university marks of a candidate for each subject in each semester. According Mr. Ajayakumar, a candidate can view his marks in any semester by changing the examination code for that semester. "B.Tech candidates write about 58 examinations across eight semesters. In each semester there will be reappearance, revaluation or improvement. So one paper in each semester can carry three or four marks. Earlier, a candidate had to struggle to collate the correct marks from among all these mark lists. With the new software this can be done quickly," he said.

The AIS also has provision for the students to send a message to the database server if there are any discrepancies. The student can, after checking the mark list, alert the university about any error in the marks recorded on the web site.

"We will verify the authenticity of the complaint and reply to the student via email," the director said.

The results were posted on the web site this evening. According to a press note issued by the university, applications for revaluation and scrutiny can be submitted till September 20. The mark lists will be made available to various examination centres on August 30.
