Star | Monday’s roadblocks caused some law students to miss out on the first paper of the Certificate of Legal Practice (CLP) exams.
According to an e-mail from a student named Ganesh, which was distributed by Lim Kit Siang (DAP-Ipoh Timur) in Parliament lobby Wednesday, many students had missed the paper which was scheduled for 9am Monday at Universiti Malaya.
Ganesh said he had left his house at 7am and only arrived at UM at 10.30am.
“By that time, it was too late to sit for that particular paper.
“And the CLP examination is such that if you miss just one paper, you might as well resit the whole examination the next year.”
Ganesh said this year was the last year for the CLP examinations before it was scrapped for good and questioned how he was going to sit for the examination again.
“To make matters worse, there were no protests at all.”
Ganesh said many law students were now stuck, not knowing what to do.
