Students of Ram Lakhan Singh Yadav (RLSY) College in Bettiah, Bihar were forced to write examinations on open grounds due to overcrowding of the premises on Sunday, October 27. The students were found writing in the corridors for the GS exams, and due to the crowded atmosphere of the grounds, mass copying was seen taking place.
RLSY College, exam-in-charge, Dr Rajeshwar Prasad said that it was the lack of an examination hall was the main reason behind this condition. It led to the inability to accommodate a high number of students in the college.
Dr Prasad told, “The college has the capacity to accommodate 2,000 students, but the students coming for the examinations are more than 5,000. Due to more students, this situation has occurred in our college.”
He further added, “This problem can only be solved with the construction of a proper examination hall that can accommodate more students. We have contacted all authorities concerned, but an exam hall is yet to be constructed.”
He also said that the absence of an examination hall not only caused problems for the students in giving their exams, but also heavily impacted their results due to bad handwriting.
