MUMBAI: Around 80% second-year LLB students from Siddharth College failed the third semester exams after their results were declared last week. Some of the students have now given written individual complaints to Mumbai University’s students’ grievance cell alleging unfair assessment. The students have sought re-assessment from an independent faculty appointed by the cell.

One of the complaint letter submitted to the university stated that only 50 of the 240 students who took the exam from the college have failed in more than one subjects. “I got less than 35 marks in all the four subjects when you need a minimum of 45% to clear. The assessment is not true and fair and is unacceptable to me,” said the student in the letter.

Arun Kedia, one of the students, cleared all the subjects, but said that the college may be biased in their assessment as the second-year students had approached university in the past seeking refund of excess fees charged by the college. The principal of the college, K Sudhakar Reddy, was unavailable for comment.
