In a bizarre yet funny incident, a class 12 male student from Bihar fainted in the examination hall. Interestingly, he fainted not because of exam stress or any other health disorder; rather, he fainted after finding himself the only boy among around 500 girls in the exam hall. 

Though unbelievable, it’s true! Mani Shankar, a class 12 student of Bihar Sharif’s Allama Iqbal College went to attend his Mathematics paper on day one of his intermediate exams at a school (exam centre) on Wednesday. 

However, before attending the exam, Shankar lost his nerves and fainted after encountering only girl students. He blacked out after he couldn’t find any other boy at the exam centre in Brilliant Convent School in Sundargarh's locality. Next, he was rushed to hospital, reported Times of India.

As briefed by a relative of Shankar, he felt extremely nervous after finding out that he was the only boy in the crowd of 500 girls. “He (Shankar) had a headache and caught a fever as well,” he said.

Following the goof-up, the authorities came under pressure. Later, the school administration informed that possibly, the boy mentioned his gender as ‘female’ mistakenly for which he was allotted the exam centre full of girls.

The superintendent of the exam centre blamed the student and his guardians and said that it was the responsibility of the boy or his guardian or the school to correct it when the boy saw that his gender had been mentioned as female on the admit card. “Sufficient time, 20 days was given to make any corrections. This is carelessness,” TOI quoted the superintendent as saying.
