While a few were lucky to get additional marks in the second publication, many have had their marks cut.
A L Selvam, brother of Meena, a candidate who appeared for the entrance exam for MSc Economics, found her marks reduced the second time. She had scored 45 out of 135 in the results that were first put out on the website.
However, the second time, her marks were cut short to 34. Besides, she was found ineligible for the course as mathematics was not part of her higher secondary subjects. However, Selvam claims that no such criteria was set at the time of applying for the exams.
Another candidate, S Veera Prasath, is awaiting a reply to his mail to the authorities seeking to know why his marks were reduced from 48 to 33. "I had applied for admission to Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics and my name appeared in the rank list. I don't know why the marks were revised. There is no response from the university as well," he added.
Though his name had appeared in the rank list, he is skeptical about getting an admission. The counselling is scheduled to be held on Tuesday, he said. Yet another candidate, Deepak Raj, had applied for Bsc BEd, MSc Life Science and Msc Mathematics, and had scored 31 initially.
However, when the results were put out for the second time, it was reduced to 25. While applying for the examination, there had been an option for Bsc BEd, but interestingly, when enquired with the university through the phone number provided on the website, an official had said there was no such course this year.
"When we sought the reason for change in marks, the officials said that it was due to a technical fault. However, we have both mark lists which is a proof of the goof up," said his father S Ravi.
However, there were some lucky ones like Abdul Jalal, who surprisingly got additional marks in the second results.
"I scored 35 first, but the second result showed it as 73 out 135," he added. Revanth, who had applied for MSc Economics, was also lucky to score more in the second results. However, he found himself ineligible as he did not opt for Mathematics in Plus Two.
"When I enquired with the Central University of Tamilnadu, I was told that since I did not choose mathematics in Plus Two, I was ineligible. But nothing as such was mentioned in the application," he said.
Earlier, CUCET candidates, upon reaching the examination centres allotted to them, were taken by surprise when they were told that the exam had been postponed. An official source at the Central University of Tamil Nadu said more than 500 applicants had applied from TN.
