                    W.P.(C) No. 31044 OF 2009
                          --------------------------
             Dated this the 2nd day of November, 2009

                           J U D G M E N T

Heard Dr. George Abraham, the learned counsel appearing for

the petitioner and Sri. P.C.Sasidharan, the learned standing counsel

appearing for the Calicut University.

2. The petitioner is a final year B.Sc Nursing student of

Crescent College of Nursing, a college affiliated to the University of

Calicut. She appeared for second year B.Sc examination in Nursing

conducted by the University of Calicut in March 2009. The results

were published in October 2009. The petitioner failed in the paper

Surgical Nursing including O.R. Technique. She has therefore

applied for revaluation of her answer script by submitting Ext.P1

application, scrutiny of her answer script by submitting Ext.P2

application and for a Photostat copy of the answer script by

submitting Ext.P3 application, all dated 27.10.2009. It is stated that

the requisite fee has also been paid. Reliance is placed on

Exts.P4, P5 and P6 receipts in support of the said submission. The

petitioner submits that the third year examinations are scheduled to

commence on 11.11.2009 and that unless her answer script is

W.P.(C) No. 31044/09
2

revalued expeditiously she will not be in a position to appear for the

said examination. It is stated that she had done well in the

examination and is hopeful of securing a pass. On these grounds,

the petitioner seeks a direction to the respondents to take steps to

revalue her answer script and to communicate the result to her

expeditiously.

3. The result of the second year B.Sc degree examination in

Nursing, for which the petitioner appeared for, was published only in

the last week of October, 2009. The petitioner applied for revaluation

on 27.10.2009. Apart from merely alleging that unless the petitioner

passes the second year examination she would not be permitted to

appear for the third year examination, no such regulation has been

brought to my notice. However the third year examination is

scheduled to be held on 11.11.2009, within another nine days from

today. It will not be possible for the University to revalue the

petitioner’s answer script and to publish the result before the said

date.

4. Sri.P.C.Sasidharan, the learned standing counsel appearing

for the Calicut University however submits that the University will

W.P.(C) No. 31044/09
3

revalue the petitioner’s answer script and communicate the result to

her expeditiously, if her application is otherwise in order. As regards

scrutiny and the request for a photostat copy of the answer script, the

learned standing counsel submits that scrutiny can be arranged and

held expeditiously and a photostat copy will also be issued forthwith.

I accordingly dispose of this writ petition with a direction to the

respondents to take steps to have the petitioner’s answer script

described in Ext.P1 application revalued and to communicate the

result to her within two months from the date on which the petitioner

produces a certified copy of this judgment before the Controller of

Examinations, University of Calicut. The Controller of Examinations,

University of Calicut, shall within two weeks from the date on which

the petitioner produces a certified copy of this judgment before him

also make arrangements for scrutiny of the answer script. The

Controller of Examinations shall also issue to the petitioner a

photostat copy of the answer script described in Ext.P3 application.

P.N.RAVINDRAN, JUDGE
