The Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences was recently ordered by the Karnataka High Court to re-conduct the 'Practical Examinations' for eight final-year students who have been marked failed in the exams held in March 2021.

The petitioners argued that they were all deserving students who had finished all past semesters successfully. They received very poor grades in the 'Practical Examinations' that were held in the month of March 2021, as a result of which they were announced 'failed' in the practical examinations. Most of the petitioners had previously addressed the high court, and a coordinating Bench had asked the University (RGUHS) to evaluate the petitioners' arguments and issue necessary orders in compliance with the University's Rules and Regulations
. Whereas after giving it some thought, the University decided not to reschedule the practical exams.

Mr. Rangegowda.Y & Ors, in which it was noted that no remarks have been filled in the section where the examiners were needed to make them. On that basis solely, the students' objection was addressed by ordering the University to reschedule the practical examinations in three weeks.
After considering the order, the bench stated that while the Honorable Division Bench approved alleviation to the students solely on the basis that the remarks columns were indeed not filled and the marks were also not mentioned individually by all four examiners in the present cases. As a result, these are unquestionably instances that must be resolved in accordance with the Honourable Division Bench's decisions.
