Happens only in Bihar , students got more marks than the total (might be for their good handwriting)

In Bihar, some students were left stunned on seeing their mark sheets of class 12th board exams.

Two years after the infamous topper scam, the Bihar School Examination Board was again in the limelight on Friday when some class XII students claimed that they scored higher marks than the total. Some others complained that they received marks in papers they never appeared for.

No, not because the marks were disappointing, but because it got a bit too overwhelming.

A few students got more marks than the grand total. One student said he wasn’t surprised considering the board’s notorious image.

This incident puts the spotlight on failing state machinery once again.

While one student wasn’t surprised, another was shocked
Arwal district’s Bhim Kumar got 38 out of the total 35 marks in mathematics (theory) and 37 out of 35 in objective questions. “Such things have been happening in the state board exams for long,” he said.

Another student Sandeep Raj scored 38 out of 35 in Physics, and 0 in the objective paper. He said it was impossible.
