Those who went through tertiary education would understand the struggles of going through university and the disagreements we would have with our lecturers especially when it comes to our grades.
However, this Monash University Australia student took things too far in our opinion!
The journalism masters student, Chinmay Naik submitted an assignment about the negative stereotypes of dogs and was shocked when he discovered that he was only graded 12/100 for it. His assignment was graded a second time, but there was only a slight increase in his marks.

It is learned that the assignment featured street interviews with dog owners walking their pets, and was criticised by the markers for not having a narrative structure, one shot of overlay, no expert interviews, and no clear beginning/middle/end.
Chinmay refused to accept the result and thought he deserved at least a minimum passing mark. So, he decided to take things to the Supreme Court to get his marks overturned.
According to Daily Mail, the masters student clarified in court that the university acted unlawfully for not disclosing who the second marker was, and believes the same person marked his assignment twice.
It is learned that the case was also taken to the Australian Prime Minister’s office, the Human Rights Commission and even public advocates, who all rejected Chinmay’s appeal.
