A video has emerged from Maharashtra’s Yavatmal district where people can be seen climbing the wall and throwing chits through the windows of a school where Maharashtra State Board Examination was being held. The incident took place on Tuesday, 3 March.

This isn’t the only incident of mass cheating to have surfaced. Back in 2015, a video showing people climbing walls of an examination centre in Bihar’s Hajipur to help students cheat, went viral.

Another video emerged from Uttar Pradesh in 2017, where boys girls were seen cheating.

In the same year, a video from West Bengal’s Malda also showed people scaling gates and walls to help the students cheat.

Incidents like these raise serious questions on the state of India’s education system.
