Bihar: In what comes as an absolute shocker and an eye-opener to the nation; the students of Bihar scoring 99% marks in academic subjects are not even aware of the subjects they have studied in their 12th standard.
In a video that has gone viral, the students were seen clueless about the answers. When the respective students were asked simple and extremely basic questions, they could not produce answers related to the subject and were not even able to pronounce them correctly.
This, indeed, raises a big question mark on the education system that exists in the country. Experts claim since the education system in India primarily focuses on attaining marks, such cases come to the fore, quite often.
After the reports surfaced in media, the Education Minister of the state, Ashok Choudhary has now stated the 10 toppers will now have to take the exam again in addition to a revaluation to check on whether proxies took exams on behalf of the students.
Last year, photos of students scaling the walls of an examination centre made headlines, triggering the introduction of penalties for cheating including a six-year jail term for the guilty.
