There was an hour left in the examination, when we demanded the continuous sheets, but to our shock, they refused to provide us the same stating that there are no continuous sheets available with them, said a couple of girl students to news agency CNS.
Similar complaints poured in from students who had appeared in Mallinson School Srinagar. Girl students were seen weeping outside the examination centres. I am so disappointed and frustrated that I want to end my life. The rude and irresponsible staffers in the examination centre (8172) did not provide continuous sheets even though half an hour was still left, said a girl student.
