Judge M Dandabani gave direction while allowing a recent written petition from Student R Nithya.

According to the petition’s petition, Anna University assigned her a seat in electronics and communications engineering at a private college in the nearby city of Padur and she completed the two-year course. While she was at it, she developed allergic rhinitis, which prevented her from attending classes for two years, and the college issued her with a forced transfer certificate. She recovered from illness in 2020 and was accepted in July 2021 after which she was regularly attending college.

As per the college advice, I have paid the 5th semester fee of Rs 2,500 for six subjects and three practical exams to be held in January. Despite paying the exam fee, she did not get her registration number.

Finally, the university told her to start the course from the first year. Hence, the present written request. To save the student, the judge referred to Anna University regulations, particularly Regulation 5.1, which states that students who have enrolled in a Bachelor of Engineering degree from the Senior High School track must complete the course within a 14-semester period which means that students must complete the course within seven Years.

In the case at hand, the petitioner interrupted her studies between April 2018 and mid-2020 for two years and subsequently enrolled in college for the fifth semester. In the inter-throne period, except for the four semesters she completed, she did not follow the course for another four semesters, totaling eight semesters. She has two additional years of study, i.e. four semesters and if she is allowed to write the exam for the four semesters, she will only complete 12 semesters.

However, even as mandated by Regulation 5.1, students from the Senior High School track must complete the course within 14 semesters. Even if the petitioner is allowed to write the exam at the moment, she will only be in the ninth semester in the total semester of 14, and is therefore within the regulations set by the university.

In this case, refusing the petitioner’s case to continue and write the exam is not sustainable at all, and the same is subject to interference, the judge said and directed the university and college to allow her to write the fifth term exam. within a week.
