A candidate said some seats for the candidates were even adjusted in the college corridors which added to the candidates’ woes especially in the afternoon session because of direct sunlight amid scorching heat. The candidate said some of the candidates were not observing fast and when they demanded water to drink during the exam they were denied the same outright on the pretext water was not available owing to Ramazan.
