Students were not allowed to enter the examination hall as they did not have their roll numbers with them.
More on the report
- The CBSE English exam for class 12 was held on March 9 and 15 students were denied entry into the examination center.
- On denying the entry, students claimed that their respective schools had not issued them their roll numbers.
- After they were denied entry, the whole situation turned into a big fat drama which took place right on the gate of the school.
After the incident came into light, the UT school education director Rubinderjeet Singh Brar ordered an inquiry into the incident. The incident took place at the Gyandeep Jyoti High School, Sector 20, Chandigarh.
Statements by the officials on the incident
Chancal Singh, Deputy Director school education said "The school seems to have misguided the students by giving them admission in Class-12 without even asking for their Class-11 pass certificates. We have got to know from students that the school has asked for fee and told them that the rest will be taken care of."
Officials also told "that due to irregularities in the school's admission process, students had not received their roll numbers."
Later Principal Suman Deswal of Gyandeep Model High School said "everything was resolved later and the students were given roll numbers."
