In addition to shortage of space, the First Grade College also experience lack of enough question papers too. The College was short of as many as 400 question papers for the exam on Thursday.

The question papers had to be photocopied using the machine in the College to overcome the problem.

The process, however, caused a delay and the students had to wait for half an hours, for the exams to begin.

The students were, however, compensated by providing an additional 30 minutes to complete the paper, said College principal B V Krishnappa.

Exams refused

Fees had been collected from students who had failed in the final year degree exams conducted in 2004.

However, the University Examination Board had ordered that no exams be conducted for such students. Therefore, the students were denied an opportunity to answer the exams on Thursday.

The angered students had a verbal tussle with the College principal.
