“At around 8:00 pm, students were informed about a technical issue in the lab, prompting management of the centre to relocate students to another lab. Unfortunately, during this transition, there were discussions about the exam paper and thoughts and ideas were shared by the aspirants,” the aspirant said.

“I came to such a situation first time in my life during exams. It seemed that authorities were not taking the ethical conduct of examinations seriously at all. There was a lack of diligence in maintaining the integrity of the exam process; questions were openly discussed among candidates. The government needs to treat this matter seriously, and appropriate action should be taken,” aspirants held.

Expressing distress over the situation, the candidates emphasized the substantial effort invested in preparation, now jeopardized by the unfortunate turn of events. They demand justice and urge the government to conduct a re-exam at the Al-Amin Center to ensure a fair process of the exam.
