India: Remarkable pictures show dozens of people scaling four-storey building to pass relatives notes during high pressure school leaving exams

Authorities in eastern India have been left embarrassed after images of people scaling the walls of a school exam centre to pass notes to relatives were broadcast on national television.

The images show dozens of people clinging to the windows of the four-storey building in the eastern state of Bihar, where more than 1.4million teenagers are sitting their leaving exams.

Other images showed police officers and school staff doing nothing and simply standing by as people passed study aides to candidates inside examination centres…

    I guess that explains why their engineers are so skilled that they have to be doubled, and tripled-up on projects.
    The problem is that when cheating is so rampant, EVERYONE has to cheat to remain competitive.
    The end result is that 99% of them are trained like crap and ‘don’t know anything’ when they graduate.
    We might as well try to make Easter Island the tech capital of the South West Pacific.

      I recently made a presentation to a room full of Indian railway engineers – all degree’d up to the eyeballs, no doubt. From the questions it became apparent to me that not one of them understood how a railway wheel set works.

        Up until now, I didn’t either.
        I just assumed that the faster turning wheel was “slipping” on the rail.
        I learn something new everyday!

    This is among the main reasons why Indian academic credentials are not accepted here in Canada. Also, several university professors meet grisly ends each year over academic disputes – usually over grades – with students.

      Are those the people replacing Americans at Southern California Edison as IT workers because they have better work ethic and qualifications? We western citizens are sort of like the Indian police “what can we do when governments and industry cheat…shoot them all?”

    Looks the same as any Peel District School Board high school exit exam. However the names and turban colors have all been changed to protect the innocents,
