Ettumanoor: Mahatma Gandhi University has refused free revaluation of the examination papers of privately registered post-graduate students. However, students have been now allowed more time to pay and submit the application directly.

The students should pay the fee and directly apply for revaluation, the university authorities stated.

The applicants should pay the fee before 3 November.

The revaluation has been necessitated after the second-semestermass failure of students who were enrolled at parallel colleges.

These students belonging to the 2019–21 batch had complained about the evaluation of the first and second semester examination papers.

Around 3,107 students had written exams in various subjects. Among them, 2,798 students failed. The students had submitted a complaint to Vice Chancellor Dr Sabu Thomas demanding to allow free revaluation of all the answer sheets. However, a favorable decision wasn’t taken. The students then filed a suit in the High Court.

The university had conveyed its decision to the HC when the case was called for hearing recently. As the stipulated time for application has expired, the revaluation is not possible in the regular way, however, as a special consideration more time has been allowed, the HC was told.
