“Law colleges have a right to grant marks on the basis of scrutiny of assignments but the right is not absolute. DAVV is going to keep an eye on mark allocation,” said exam controller Ashesh Tiwari.
The university is going to send a team of subject experts to the law colleges to examine whether the marks allocated to students are justified.
