AKTU’s 9-Month Delay in COP Results in Hundreds Losing Jobs and Postgraduate Seats. Despite conducting the Carry-Over Paper (COP) exams in December and January, AKTU has yet to announce the results.

AKTU's 9-Month Delay in COP Results


In New Delhi, Satyendra Singh faced unemployment after being unable to provide his BPharma marksheet. He successfully completed his BPharma degree in 2022 from a private college in Lucknow, which is affiliated with Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam Technical University (AKTU), Lucknow.

After struggling with one out of four papers in the sixth semester of his course, Singh had to pass the carry over papers (COP) administered by AKTU in December 2022 and January 2023 to clear that particular subject. However, even nine months later, AKTU has not yet released the results.

During this prolonged wait for AKTU results, numerous students from various professional and technical programs including pharmacy, engineering, management, and more, have been forced to halt their future academic pursuits and career plans. Like Singh, many have either lost their jobs or are unable to apply for positions due to the absence of their marksheets.

Singh lamented, “I secured a position as a medical representative in April this year, responsible for promoting and selling medical products to various healthcare facilities. Unfortunately, the company required my AKTU results, which I am still awaiting. This led to the loss of my job.

The state-run university in Uttar Pradesh conducts the Carry Over Paper (COP) exams after releasing results for regular courses. Students must achieve the minimum passing marks to progress or complete their respective courses. While media reports suggest that AKTU may soon announce the COP results, there has been no official confirmation. Despite attempts to reach out, AKTU officials have not provided a comment. If they do, this information will be promptly updated.
