Three students in Kolkata fell ill while writing their Madhyamik examination. All three were rushed to the Calcutta National Medical College and SSKM, where they wrote their papers after necessary go-ahead from the Madhyamik board.
In another incident, police took an examinee and her mother were taken to the Holy Child School from Shyambazar 5-Point crossing in the official vehicle of Burtolla OC. “She had just a few minutes left to reach the exam centre and she was crying. Finally, she reached the centre at 11.35am, 10 minutes before the papers were distributed,” said an officer.
Traffic sergeant Tapas Sinha and ASI S Saha rushed all the way from Thakurpukur P K Brahmachari Vidyapith to a girl’s home, located 4km away, to get her admit card and registration certificate which she forgot to take with her to the exam centre.
A student, who was supposed to write his exam at Jagatpur Rukmini Vidyamandir, was admitted to CNMC Hospital after he fell sick. The Behala OC talked to the centre and the board to ensure that he could take his exam from hospital. Another student writing her exams at Kasba Balika Vidyalaya was rushed to SSKM Hospital when she reported sick. A third examinee also reported sick at the Calcutta Girls’ academy from where she was shifted to CNMC Hospital by police.
