Patna, India: Students of an Ayurveda College under the Baba Saheb Bihar University, demanded re-evaluation of their test papers, by nearly stripping, to attract the attention of the passers-by and the powers that be, chanted anti-Vice Chancellor and anti-examination controller slogans. They said because of massive irregularities in the evaluation of the test papers, students who had earned over 80% in one paper were given zero in others.
They found it impossible to believe that while in the state colleges, 95% of the Ayurvedic students were able to pass, in the private institutions the success rate was a meager 5 to 7% only. The protesters demanded re-evaluation of their test papers saying they would continue to protest until action was taken to address their grievance.
