A large number of parents and students affected by the Z- score issue staged a protest march to the University Grants Commission today.
Some 1,500 students and parents from various districts demanded of officials to formulate a solution where as students would be admitted into universities based on former Z score values.
Subsequently students engaged in the protest handed over an epistle to officials at the UGC.
