Gopikrishna, Regina (on The Application of) v The Office of The Independent Adjudicator for Higher Education and Others: Admn 6 Feb 2015

‘the Claimant, then a second-year medical student, failed her end-of-year examination. She asked to be allowed to repeat the year and to re-sit the examination. A committee at the medical school decided that she should not be allowed to repeat the year, and that her course should be terminated. The Claimant appealed to a review panel acting for the whole university, which rejected her appeal. The Claimant then made a complaint to the Office of the Independent Adjudicator for Higher Education (‘OIA’) the statutory authority for higher education responsible for adjudication in such matters. The OIA over a period of time issued two provisional decisions, and later, following various developments detailed below, its final decision in an ‘Amended Complaint Outcome.’ The Claimant’s complaint was not upheld. She now seeks judicial review of that final decision of the OIA.’
