They pointed out that the university did not produce any regulation on the issue. Even the guidelines supposedly issued by the director of collegiate education were not placed before the court.
"In any event, when a particular course is introduced or offered by the university, they have to prescribe the guidelines.
No such guidelines or regulations had been formulated by the Madurai Kamaraj University which makes the candidates who studied in an open university ineligible to pursue the B.Ed course," the court said.
Earlier, the candidate had submitted that though she was admitted to the B.Ed course offered by a college affiliated to the university, she was not permitted to write the examination as she could not produce Plus Two certificates.
She had only completed the open stream degree course offered by the Madras University.
