The Supreme Court Wednesday refused to interfere with the first round of counselling going on for admissions to 19 prestigious law colleges of the country after the CLAT examination. 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 counselling. 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. The court had asked the GRC to look into complaints, to apply the normalisation formula to compensate for the time lost by students during the exam.
