Writing random things on answer sheets during examinations in the hope of getting grace marks is not a new thing, many students would agree to this. Some notorious students even write movie summaries and Bollywood songs in the examination, however, we have never heard anything beyond that till this news report surfaced from Gujarat.
A Class XII student from Anand district in Gujarat took his imagination to intimate levels and ended up writing his explicit thoughts which eventually transformed into literary porn.
According to a Times of India report, the student wrote at length about his sexual fantasies for Bollywood actresses, his sister-in-law and even his cook in his Chemistry exam.
The woman teacher who was checking his answer paper was shocked on reading the explicit content. She flagged the paper to the co-ordinator of the centralized assessment centre, who then insisted that action be taken.
A cheating case was filed against the student, as the board has a provision to penalize students who write expletives in answer sheets. The boy was also summoned before the examination reforms committee for an explanation, however, he failed to turn up.
After the matter came to light, the board decided to cancel his result and bar him from taking the board exams for one year.
The boy had reportedly attempted all the questions but his answers contain detailed prose containing his sexual fantasies with various people, including his sister-in-law.
The teacher gave him a big zero in chemistry, but according the report, he is reported to have failed all the other subjects as well.
Speaking about the student, a board official said that he suffers from a perverted psyche which needs to be corrected. The board has decided to call his parents and show them his marksheet so that they can take some remedial steps.
The state board recorded nearly 2,000 cheating cases against candidates taking the class X and XII board examinations. Most of the students were caught copying from chits or answer papers of other students.
Officials said this will be a rare case where a student has been penalized for writing pornographic material instead of answers.
