    The Supreme court gave a ruling for the correction of the error in calculating the z-score. The UGC and the Ministry of higher education has to abide by the ruling and send the deserving students to the university according to the newly calculated z-scores.. If the protesters are sent instead of the actually deserving students an injustice, a violation of human rights and contempt of court is being done for the rightful students..

    Other than for Medicine for the past several years including for the Engineering faculty the majority of students that were chosen to the universities were from the 1st attempt students. Just because repeaters and some adults protested the UGC must not infringe the rights of the deserving first attempt students. The UGC will have to obey the Supreme court order and release the cut-off marks according to the rectified list of z-scores.
