Hyderabad: The contentious issue of revaluation of answer sheets of first year MBBS students of NTR Health University has been set to rest by the Division Bench of the AP High Court on Friday. The Bench upheld the decision of the university which had nullified the revaluation.

It may be recalled that a controversy had arisen when it came to light that large number of students had been awarded marks during revaluation and they were promoted to the second year. The Vice-Chancellor reported the matter to the council and the highest decision making body of the university nullified the revaluation.

The beneficiaries filed a writ petition before the court and a single judge ruled in their favour.

The university went in appeal and it was brought to the notice of the Bench that the original decision of the V-C was to verify the answer scripts but there was revaluation and unauthorised awarding of marks.
