A student named Hema Sharma secured admission in MBA college in 2019, had to move to High Court after not getting any relief from the College as she could not clear one paper of B.Com final year as her MBA admission was in jeopardy.
The petitioner had appeared for the final B.Com final year exam in 2019 and also cleared the CET for admission in MBA. She got the admission from CAP round and started attending college. When the B.Com result came out she realized she has failed in English and with this, her MBA admission was in jeopardy. She continued to appear for MBA classes. She applied for rechecking, but the result was the same.
Later, she appeared for the exam on December 4, 2019, and cleared the paper. In the meantime, the petitioner continued to attend MBA classes. She demanded regularization of her otherwise invalid admission with retrospective effect.
When the respondent Sant Gadge Baba Amravati University refused to do so she moved to HC. After hearing the matter, HC came to the conclusion that such an attempt by the petitioner was not permissible in law. When a student secures admission to a course, the student is required to fulfill all the eligibility criteria on the date on which the admission is given and if some of the eligibility criteria are left out on that day and are fulfilled, later on, such subsequent fulfillment of the remaining criteria cannot take any retrospective effect so as to regularize the initial admission of a student.
