In order to reveal the rampant cheating in Bihar board exam, we interviewed the state toppers and found that they did not have even the basic knowledge of the subjects they scored distinction in.
Rubi, who topped in the exams conducted by the Bihar School Examination Control Board (BSEB), shocked and surprised all when she told a local TV channel that one of her subjects was ‘Prodical Science’, instead of political science. For her, political science is a subject that imparts information about cooking.
On the other hand, Saurabh Sresth, who topped in Class 12 from the Science stream, did not have the basic knowledge of science. He said that aluminium is an active element in response to a question. But when asked about sodium and electrons, he failed to reply.
That is not all. Rubi is also not aware about the subjects in her Class 12 exams. She revealed that Class 12 exams was of 600 marks but actually it was of 500 marks. She secured 444 out of 500 marks and became the Bihar Arts topper.
Interestingly, while Rubi like most of the students in Bihar wants to become an IAS officer, Saurabh wants to become a scientist.
As soon as the news went viral, authorities in Bihar decided to re-conduct the examination for these toppers, they have asked the students to appear in an interview and once again take a small examination related to their subject.
