Justice K K Sasidharan gave the directive on a petition by the father of the boy who was initially awarded 153 out of 200 marks in mathematics but was later given 193 after it was found four pages of his answersheets containing answers of 40 one mark questions were missing when he sought a revaluation.

Since the cut-off marks of the boy would go up consequent to the revised marks, the Secretary TNEA was directed to consider the fresh marks and allot a seat to the student within one week.
