Kochi: The Kerala High Court here on Friday directed the Kerala University of Health Sciences (KUHS) to find a solution for the students who were unable to appear for the final year MBSS exam between March 31 and April 5.

The university replied that they are evaluating whether to conduct a supplementary examination or allow students to write the exam as the first attempt in September. A division bench comprising Justice S Manikumar and Justice Murali Purushothaman asked the university to come up with a decision within a month.

The court was hearing the petitions filed by around 500 students after their initial petition was dismissed by a single bench.

University officials stated that students failed to appear for the two exams due to some misconceptions spread through social media. The High Court here pointed out that the students should have contacted the university for more clarity after seeing the fake news.

The division bench opined that the university cannot be blamed for the failure of students to attend the exam.
