    • UGC not accepted the Kerala High Court’s (KHC) Verdict and Counter filed case against the KHC’s Verdict and appealed to quash the Verdict given by KHC – Single Bench who declared June-2012 Results Criteria Alteration was Illegal.
    • UGC is still emphasizing on the Statement, “Only such candidates who obtain the minimum required marks in each paper separately, as mentioned above, will be considered for final preparation of result.

    • If case got to moved to Supreme Court, then you may think to form a group to file a case.
  • What should be our course of actions now?

    • According to UGC reply to an RTI, we could see Subject Wise & Category Wise Cut-Off %, in which many Subjects got Cut-Off as least as 41.14% & 42%. Need to check with that.
    • NOTE: We found these details over internet, not sure how Authentic it was, as we couldn’t collect full RTI details. However we have randomly checked few Roll Numbers, for which we could correlate with the Cut-Off Number given in the document, so we thought it was good enough to consider.
