CLAT 2018: Release of First UG Allotment List Rescheduled To 10 June

After being embroiled in controversy for widespread technical glitches for over a month, the first allotment list for admissions to undergraduate programs under Common Law Admission Test (CLAT), 2018 has now been rescheduled to 10 June. Students will have to pay the counseling fee of Rs. 50,000 from 10 June to 14 June.

The results for the exam were announced on 31 May, after a Supreme Court Bench comprising Justice L. Nageswara Rao and Justice M.M. Shantanagoudar refused to stay their publication, directing the Grievance Redressal Committee (GRC) established by NUALS, Kochi to submit its report to it by June 6.

The Court on Wednesday also made it clear that the seat allotment shall be contingent on the final disposal of the petitions challenging the exam. Meanwhile, the GRC submitted its report, suggesting that the affected students be compensated with extra marks. It however cautioned that the rank of the candidates in the existing list should not be affected when the allotment list is redrawn after adding the compensatory marks.

The GRC was set up in view of the Supreme Court order issued on 25 May for effective redressal of the grievances put forth by scores of candidates who appeared for the exam this year. The Committee is chaired by former Kerala High Court Judge, Justice Hariharan Nair, and also comprises of Dr. Santhosh Kumar G., Professor and Head, Department of Computer Science, Cochin University of Science and Technology.

The matter is now posted before the Supreme Court on 11th June. Interestingly due to different rosters per week in the vacations, till now 7 different judges in 4 different combinations have heard the matter and on 11th, the 5th bench and 2 more judges will hear it.

    If there’s something called a travesty of justice, that too by none other than a former High Court Judge, this is it! What the learned judge had to say was less informed, less discerning and less fair than what an ignorant bystander would do.

    It is glaring that the University that conducted CLAT 2018 perpetrated so many errors that it should have had the good sense, what with so many teachers of law on its rolls, to own up responsibility, cancel the exam and announce a retest. In this aspect, the University concerned has abdicated its responsibility on all fronts. This bungling will have far-reaching effects for the University, marring its name well into the future whenever administrative incompetence is discussed anywhere on any campus of a law college.

    What neither the judge nor the University understands is that a few candidates are not just mere pieces of statistics; those are human beings – youngsters – with their aspirations arbitrarily snuffed out. To make matters doubly worse, nowhere does the learned judge, in his indictment, uses language and content that can be called anything other than indulgent. It’s like a parent conveniently condoning the errant behavior of his favorite child.

    If the exhortation “Primum non nocere” applies as much to law as it does to medicine, then both the former High Court judge from Kerala and The National University of Advanced Legal Studies, Kochi, Kerala, stand indicted and convicted of gross negligence, intransigence and iniquity.

  • Shai says:

    The merit and cutoff to various institutions has not shown by NUALS, in the seat allotment done on 10th June, which has been shown in earlier years. This clearly indicates that NUALS is not only incapable to conduct exam fairly, but also not sure whether the allotment of seats is fair, and thus they have chosen not to be transparent and visible to society.
    The worst thing has been that some people have misused the technical glitches and favoured some students in getting disproportionately higher time extension, and in some cases up to 2 hours, and these set of people have got extra time in hours, in a exam, where even 2 extra minutes mean a lot. So the present merit list can not be trusted as true merit list and, if something further done statistically, it would hardly correct such wrong doings like generous time extension to few candidates.

    In fact all case where the extra time is given to be investigated for the time allotted, and if it was very generous for few fellows/ centers, it calls for retest, as the scale of this test is much smaller than JEE and NEET, which do not get reported like CLAT 2018, for the wrong and unjust treatment to the aspiring Lawyers.

    Result is total confusion. Future of so many students are at stake. Heavens would not have fallen down if the examination had been totally cancelled or atleast publication of results would have been stopped till all complaints were settled. Something appears to be beyond the perception capacity of an ordinary man of ordinary prudence.
