CLAT 2018: Revised Score List For 4801 Aggrieved Candidates Published

In furtherance of the Supreme Court order directing NUALS, Kochi to compensate with additional marks 4801 students aggrieved due to technical glitches during Common Law Admission Test, 2018 (CLAT 2018), the revised scores of all aggrieved students have been published.

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 had also made it clear that the seat allotment shall be contingent on the final disposal of the petitions challenging the exam.

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. It 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 GRC had then submitted its report, suggesting that the affected students be compensated with extra marks. Thereafter, on 13 June, the Supreme Court had accepted the compensatory formula suggested by the Committee and had directed the publication of the consequent revised rank list.
