Soon, get VTU results on SMS

 Students of the Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) can soon send an SMS to the varsity and get the exam results on their cellphones. They can also get the provisional marks cards through e-mail.

The new SMS initiative is expected to help students from rural areas who do not have Internet access.

The service ensures wider reach and is available throughout the country. Parents can also check the results of their wards.

The Computer and Network Control Centre (CNC) has developed the automated system that enables a student to check the marks via SMS. The University Seat Number (USN) has to be typed and sent to the dedicated number 5424204.

To receive marks over SMS, type RESULT USN for regular results and REVAL USN for revaluation results. The keywords are not case sensitive. Results of the latest examination will be sent as an SMS to the student. GPRS/3G connection is not needed for receiving the results.

Every message a student sends to query his results costs Rs two or three.
To receive marks over SMS and a copy via email, type RESULT USN EMAILID for regular and REVAL USN EMAILID for revaluation results. Revaluation results will be sent in XYAB format, where X is old marks, Y is new marks, A is internal assessment marks average and B is total marks.

VTU Vice Chancellor H Maheshappa said the results through SMS had many benefits.
They were available instantly for students and their parents/guardians. The examination results are available 24/7 throughout the country.

The results of evaluation of undergraduate, postgraduate exams, besides doctorates can be checked and students can take printouts of the provisional copy of the certificate that is emailed.

The results will have less than 160 characters to avoid the ‘some text missing’ problem.

Since the marks are updated in the server database by the CNC department of the varsity, the application queries the marks and sends them as SMS and email.
The application cannot update or modify the results stored in the database. It also reaches those numbers that are subscribed in the Do Not Disturb (DND) registry, Maheshappa stated.
