The footage of Saturday's incident was flashed on regional news channels, sparking outrage by local people and the parents of the women, he said.
The female candidates, who enrolled for the nursing entrance exam of Bihar Combined Entrance Competitive Examination Board or BCECEB, were advised against wearing full-sleeved dresses, but some of them failed to adhere to the norm, District Education Officer Lalan Prasad Singh said.
"The footage showed that the staff members of the examination centre at a public school were cutting off the sleeves of candidates with scissors and blades. The education department conducted an inquiry into the incident and barred the school from holding competitive exams in future," Mr Singh said.
"The school, where the exam was held, has been blacklisted and it would no longer be entrusted with the duty of holding exams in the future. The official who served as exam superintendent has also been debarred for life," he added.
The BCECEB conducts exams across the state every year for admission in various professional courses of medical, engineering and agriculture streams.
