icon Like to convert to Christian

A. Dear Client,

A. Dear Client,
In the given situation, you may file an application before the Head of the institution requesting for review of your practical paper. But, until and unless any deviation or discrimination in the matter of evaluation of a student's performance appears on the face of the record, your grievance or complaint against the professor may be rejected by the Court for lack of substantial evidence supporting your claim. Reach out to an Advocate for guidance and steps.
