No ‘re-test’ of CLAT 2018, won’t disturb admission process: SC

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court today 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.

            A vacation bench of justices U U Lalit and Deepak Gupta gave time till June 15 to the Grievance Redressal Committee (GRC), set up by the National University of Advanced Legal Studies (NUALS) at Kochi to look into the complaints, to apply the normalisation formula to compensate for the time lost by the students during the exam.

            The committee has suggested that students, who suffered time loss due to technical glitches, can be awarded compensatory marks after taking note of data of total correct and incorrect answers given by them during the online test.

            Around 54,450 candidates had undertaken CLAT 2018 at 258 centres for admissions in 19 national law colleges. (AGENCIES)
