The Kerala High Court has directed the Indian Council for Agricultural Research (ICAR) to cancel the PG entrance exam conducted on 18 August.
The court has directed ICAR to conduct a fresh exam for the students of Kerala since many of them had failed to appear in the examination due to the flood situation in the state.
The directive was issued by Justice A Muhammed Mustaque while he was hearing a writ petition filed by Adarsh KC from Kannur and Amal CT from Alappuzha.
The petitioners had applied for the Postgraduate programme but were unable to reach the examination centre for the exam conducted on 18 August due to the unprecedented floods at that time.
The High Court observed that the ICAR should have taken note of the situation in which students had to appear in the exam.
According to the reports, about 57 per cent of students appeared for the entrance exam conducted by the ICAR on 18 August. The state has been dealing with its worst floods since 1924.
Indian Council for Agricultural Research has declared the AIEEA results for UG and PhD examinations on its official website https://icar.org.in/
The results for postgraduate examination has not been declared on the official website.
The AIEEC 2018 examinations for Undergraduate and the Undergraduate were conducted on 18 August and 19 August, respectively, at more than 50 centres across the country.
