The Case

The test the judge should have applied when hearing an application for judicial review of the decision of the Vice Chancellor of the University of Plymouth, by which he upheld the decision of the Professional Behaviour Committee of the Peninsula Medical School that the claimant's registration as a student of the School should be terminated and that he be required to withdraw from his studies, was could the tribunal fairly have decided on the evidence that they had heard, and at that stage of the claimant's career, to cut it short in the way that they had.
