Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to meddle with counseling process of those students, who have successfully passed the Common Law Admission Test(CLAT)-2018.
These students are seeking admission in top 19 law schools of India. A vacation bench of Justices U U Lalit and Deepak Gupta directed National University of Advanced Legal Studies (NUALS) at Kochi to complete by June 15 the exercise of compensating students who have faced technical glitches in the CLAT 2018 examination.
The bench asked NULAS to come up with a revised list by June 16 based on the formula suggested by two member-Grievance Redressal Committee (GRC) and include the qualified students in the second round of counseling.
NUALS, which conducted CLAT with the aid of private firm M/s Sify Technologies Ltd for admissions in undergraduate and postgraduate law programmes at premier law schools, had constituted a two-member panel to look into complaints following the apex court’s direction.
The apex court had on June 11 refused to order a “re-test” of the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2018 or stop the counselling process for admissions in 19 national prestigious law colleges across the country over complaints of technical glitches during the May 13 exam.
Soon after the exam, several pleas were filed in six different high courts across the country and also in the apex court seeking quashing of CLAT alleging inconsistencies and technical glitches during the online test. >
