According to them, some students who were supposed to sit for examinations on Monday still sat for test on Sunday evening, saying such was absurd in an academic environment.
They claimed that the action of the institution was to deliberately lure students to failure to justify their action that almost made a student to commit suicide recently.
Other agitations by the students included the poor network of the portal which they claimed had failed to clear students who had already paid school fees for the examination and inadequate learning facilities.
