On June 20 Justice Parthiban has reserved orders on petitions challenging the release of preliminary exam results. Out of the 200 questions each carrying 1.5 marks, nearly 17 questions had wrong answer keys, and one question itself was wrong. But the TNPSC replied it has formed a committee and awarded marks for all those who attended the questions.
Also, in the reply, they explained to the court that the petitioner marks were not even near the cutoff marks of the general category. Hence the Hon'ble Judge has reserved the orders.
