“A notice has been issued to Bhagat Pre-University College seeking explanation for forcing its students wear cardboard boxes (cartons) while writing exams to prevent them from copying,” a Haveri district Deputy Director of Public Instruction (DDPI) official told IANS.
Defending the move, college head M.B. Satish told IANS, “We tried to see how it works as a trial and told the students in advance that boxes would be given to each of them to wear before writing the exam.”
What do you think of this method?
