Karnataka: College students made to wear cardboard boxes at exam
HAVERI: In a bizarre bid to curb malpractice, first-year science students of Bhagath PU College were made to sit for a midterm exam with cardboard cartons covering their heads — with a hole cut out in the front for their faces.
A video and pictures of students writing a chemistry exam on Wednesday with cartons on their heads were widely shared on social media. When officials of the education department got wind of it, they rushed to the institution and ordered the management to desist from the practice.
SC Peerjade, deputy director, PU Board, said he issued a notice to the college management for implementing what he described as “an inhuman idea in the examination hall”.
However, MB Sateesh, a director of the college, said, “We implemented this idea to curb malpractice and not to harass students. This is just an experiment. We discussed it with students and took their consent before implementing it.”
Sateesh went on to say that the college will comply with the board’s directive. “We are following all rules imposed by the PU department,” he said.
Peerjade said, “When I got a message on this, I immediately went to the college and ordered the management to stop the practice. I also issued a notice to the college management and am contemplating disciplinary action against them for implementing this idea.”
In Mexico too
Last month, a similar incident in Mexico triggered outrage with parents demanding that Colegio de Bachilleres del Estado de Tlaxcala in the central Mexican state of Tlaxcala dismiss the teacher who forced students to wear boxes on their heads.

Thinking out of the box! I do not pity the students rather the teachers. Our education stystem that promotes rot learning needs to be changed. Otherwise students will keep resorting to malpractice and make it difficult for the teachers during exams.

It just goes to prove how helpless the teachers are when cheating has gone high tech.

Its sad to see the IQ of people handing the education system. This could have been implemeted in many other simpler ways.
- Make every alternate row of students face each other.
- Use the same cardboard to create a barrier/shield along 1 or 2 sides of the desk.
- Increase the gap between students

Well done, this is a good step to stop malpractice. This should be implemented in all schools and colleges throughout the country. All the boys on the streets and in public places should be made to wear such cardboard boxes all through out the day and this will be a form of guard to prevent them gazing at girls.

our students are more intelligent they will put the bit with answers inside the box and stick it to the inner walls of the box.

I liked the idea implemented with student''s consent. It''s experimental. If this had been done in an ivy US school, Indians would have called it a ''genius'' idea (perhaps worth a Nobel prize).
