KOCHI:  Improper scheduling has put the LLB semester-IV examinations of Mahatma Gandhi University in limbo.

As per the schedule published by the varsity, semester-IV examinations of the three-year LLB course would begin on November 26. Meanwhile, semester-II supplementary examinations of the same course is scheduled to conclude on November 26.

“Since a number of students will be attending the supplementary examinations, they will be affected by the schedule announced by the varsity, setting two examinations on the same date. Now, some of the students will be forced to give up one of the examinations,” said students of the Government Law College here.

The students’ union of the Government Law College has submitted memorandum to the Vice-chancellor and the Governor with regard to the examination schedule.

“They also pointed out that the varsity had made similar mistakes in examination schedules in the past also.

Earlier, students of the five-year LLB course had to approach the court when a similar mistake occurred in the examination schedule. Then, the court made it clear that two separate examinations should not be conducted on the same date,” said students’ union leaders.

Meanwhile, the university spokesperson informed that the issue had been brought to the notice of the university authorities.

“If there is such a mistake in the schedule, it is a technical error. Any genuine grievance regarding the examination will be addressed by the University,” added the spokesperson.
