Dear Fellow Students,
Currently I am enrolled in 4th Semester of BS Software Engineering. I am facing some problems which I want to share, if anyone of you have noticed it then kindly share your experience also.
The main problem is that there is no preplanned study scheme for Software Engineering at Virtual University. I joined this degree in 2013, at that time it was a newly introduced degree. Now at the start of every semester I have no idea what courses VU will offer me, after the opening of COURSE SELECTION they show some courses which I select and after 1 or 2 weeks they change some of these courses and they don't even inform. By chance when I open my course selection tab I see 2 or 3 new courses which were not available before.
Because of this practice a new confusion is created. In Semester 4 I selected my courses on the first day when VU opened COURSE SELECTION, after 7-8 Days I checked the COURSE SELECTION again and there were 2 new courses available and SEMESTER 2 was mentioned in front of them. I recalled that in Semester 2 I got option of three elective courses and I had to choose one of them. At that time I chose one of the three courses and everything was ok, there was no complication but now I am not sure what exactly is the problem.
The three options which I got were -> MGT211 -> MGT101 -> ECO401 . In Semester 2 I selected MGT211. I followed the study scheme, did not take a break, did not drop any subject. Now COURSE SELECTION is showing me two courses -> MGT101 -> ECO401. And Semester 2 is written in front of them. I have attached the picture.
Now when I tried to apply for Need Based Scholarship I got an error that I did not follow the study scheme so I am not eligible. I contacted the department at VU but they are just trying to get rid of me and not even analyzing the problem. They just sent me a one line email "You haven't follow defined study scheme as mention semester wise so that's why you can't apply for need based Scholarship."
At the start of every Semester I selected the maximum courses available and never dropped or failed a course then why they are saying this ?
Any other Software Engineering 4th Semester student facing this problem ?
