Students were forced to write their examinations on open grounds due to overcrowding of the premises of Ram Lakhan Singh Yadav (RLSY) College in Bettiah today.
The students were found writing for the exams in the corridors and in the grounds, where many of them could be seen cheating openly.
The main reason for this condition was the lack of an examination hall leading to the inability to accommodate a high number of students in the college, said RLSY College exam-in-charge Dr Rajeshwar Prasad.
Dr Prasad said: "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."
"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 added.
Dr Prasad said the absence of an examination hall is not only causing problems for the students in taking their exams, but is also impacting the results of the students due to bad handwriting.
