GNLU Gandhinagar students will now neither face a one-year detention on failing exam papers, nor will they have to secure ‘goodness’ marks in addition to 40 per cent passing marks in semester exams.

The Gujarat high court quashed those rules in a PIL filed by nine detained students of the law school. Two marks for “goodness” were a pre-cursor to getting a hall-ticket to appear in the end-semester exams at the university until now.

Justice K S Jhaveri observed in his judgment that the rule can be “a tool in the hands of the Faculty Members, which could be used by them at their own whims and caprice”.

The court also quashed the cap of seven years for a student to graduate from GNLU from the date of his or her admission in the university [Express/Order]
