Calcutta high court tells IIMs to show answer sheets of CAT 2013

Published On: 11 Mar 2014 | Last Updated On: 11 Mar 2014

With the disgruntled candidates going to court over CAT 2013 Results, the issue has been raging on with no solution seems to be close at hand. Now the Calcutta High Court has directed the IIMs to show the answer sheets and the raw scores to the six petitioners.

According to reports, the Court has directed the respondents to file an affidavit within 4 weeks to disclose the answer sheets, the methodology for evaluation and raw marks to the petitioners. It was mentioned that ever since the Results of CAT 2013 were announced on January 14, several students have been demanding a re-valuation.

Over the course of last month, many petitions have been filed in different High Courts. A mass petition is likely to be filed in one of the High Courts soon. The Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court had last week directed to send notices to IIM Indore, Prometric and the Union of India on a petition alleging discrepancy in CAT scores. The Madras high court had earlier ordered that 8 seats be reserved for each of the petitioners in any of the 13 IIMs pending final disposal of the writ petition filed by the candidates who undertook CAT 2013 at Chennai. Last month the Indore bench of MP high court had issued notices to 13 IIMs to explain both the normalisation and the scaling process of the scores of the CAT 2013 aspirants, according to reports.
