| Wednesday | 2nd December, 2020
Tribune News ServiceNew Delhi December 2A student from Chandigarh has moved the Supreme Court challenging a Punjab and Haryana High Court verdict dismissing her plea against scrapping the UGLAW entrance test by Panjab University.
The university has instead decided to go for admission to its five-year law course on the basis of marks obtained in 12th standard considering the COVID-19 situation.
The university authorities on October 2 scrapped the entrance examination for five-year integrated course as also the three-year law course for the session 2020-2021.
Assailing the November 16 verdict of the high court petitioner Shruti Nayar contended that the university scrapped the UGLAW entrance test “wrongly and illegally” and in violation of principles of natural justice.
To go for admissions based on 12th standard examination results only was arbitrary and liable to be set aside.
