80 per cent students of Siddharth Law college fail

The students alleged that the assessment has been unfair and wrote to Mumbai University.


Following a declaration of results last week, 80 per cent second-year LLB students from Siddharth College found out that they had failed in the third semester. Some have now sent individual complaints to Mumbai University's student's grievance cell. Only 50 of 240 students have cleared the exams. The rest have failed in more than one subject.

One student got less than 35 marks in all the four subjects when you need a minimum of 45 per cent to clear. He alleged that the assessment was unfair and unacceptable. Arun Kedia has cleared all the subjects, but alleged that the college has been biased in its assessment as second-year students had approached Mumbai University (MU) earlier seeking a refund of excess fees. However, Principal, K Sudhakar Reddy refused to comment.

Notably, considering the rise in demand for LLB courses, the Higher and Technical Education Board had declared that they would increase LLB batches for the LLB-3-year-course and 5-year-course. This decision was taken by the Government for the students seeking admission in the academic year 2018-19. Likewise for the academic year 2019-20, the minimum number of batches for the 5 and 3 year law course will be 25 and 15 batches respectively
