An aspiring journalist who took Monash University to court for failing an assignment about dogs has again failed in his legal attempt to get the grade reversed.

The Court of Appeal on Thursday rejected Chinmay Naik's case, noting that his initial legal bid was "hopeless and doomed".

The 23-year-old student failed a video assignment about negative stereotypes around certain dog breeds in 2017 and failed again when it was re-marked.

The result meant he did not pass the entire video journalism subject and he instead wanted the outcome wiped from his academic record.

He argued his anxiety disorder hindered his ability to complete the assignment on time.

Even though he was granted an extension, he found the process "unsympathetic and stressful" and still remains upset by it.

Stung by the situation, Mr Naik took his case to the Supreme Court but it was dismissed in October when a judge told him to "move on" because the mark couldn't be undone.

But he refused to do that, instead taking the matter to the Court of Appeal.


In Thursday's judgment, Mr Naik was ruled to have "no arguable case".

The international student was more than 10 months late lodging proceedings in the Supreme Court, the judges noted.

Mr Naik thought he should have been granted an extension, but the judgment disagreed.

"A proceeding that is hopeless and doomed to fail would rarely, if ever, attract an extension of time," the judgment read.

Mr Naik had also taken his case to the Victorian Equal Opportunities and Human Rights Commission and the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal which deferred any action pending the appeal outcome.

The assignment in question has already been removed by Mr Naik from the university assessment portal.

Should be deported from Australia, has failed in everything, and is a failure, should be deported back to India where all failure is welcomed and celebrated.

Best advice to him is to move on...re-take the subject, or take another subject..or change the program or the university altogether but going to courts is waste of time & resources.

Not that's not fair. May be he has some issues but instead of wasting his time, he should redo the assignment if possible or take another subject.

Well, he should be deported to India, at least there he can try and build proper sanitation and help Indian society.
No, man that's racist. He should be given another chance to clear the subject but his demand to wipe it off the records is not reasonable.
