Hyderabad: Nightmare turned into reality for three EAMCET Aspirants for not being allowed to write their exams due to the ‘one minute rule’ by TS EAMCET.
Two students who reached Government Polytechnic College at Masab Tank three minutes late were not allowed inside. Though many parents who were still standing there after dropping their children, requested the police to let them in, they were still not allowed.
“I had taken long-term coaching as I could not qualify last year. I have lost two years” said Mohammed Ziaullah, student from Pahadi Sharif, who started for his centre after offering his salah around 1.30 but got stuck in traffic at Malakpet caused due to Metro Rail work.
Mohammed Faiz Uddin from Chandrayngutta who was 12 minutes late for the exam due to traffic said “Our whole year get waste due to one minute rule. I had taken long-term coaching but my year has gone waste now.”
Another student who unfortunately reached her centre Nizam College, Basheerbagh, the moment gates closed was not allowed either. Her family too tried to convince to let her in but was in vain, as reported in DC.
