Correct answer key for 2013 LLB entrance exam and admission

Correct answer key for 2013 LLB exam
Holding that the answer key for the 2013-2014 LLB entrance examination contained a "wrong" answer, the Delhi High Court today directed Delhi University to "correct" it and give admission to a student.

Allowing the plea of Raj Kumar Jha, Justice V K Jain directed the university to give him admission after considering the fresh computation of his result within a week.

"It is true that ordinarily the courts should not interfere with the answers notified by the examiners but where the court finds that the answer contained in the answer key in respect of a particular question cannot even be said one of the possible correct answers...the court would be failing in its duty if it does not correct such patently wrong answer and leaves a wronged candidate remediless, particularly when the question under consideration relates to a field of law," the court said.

"If any seat was kept reserved for the petitioner in terms of the interim order of August 5, 2013, he shall be admitted to the LLB course against that seat, if considering the fresh result to be declared in terms of this order, he was entitled to admission to the said course in the general category," the court also said.

Jha approached the High Court saying he had obtained 315 marks and was denied admission and the university gave admission to candidates who obtained 325 marks.

Claiming to have obtained informations through RTI application, Jha said that on perusal of the answer key " he felt the answers contained in the answer key for question no 94 and 110 were incorrect and the answers opted by him for the said questions were the correct answers."
