Lecturer gives students permission to cry uncontrollably during exam
Students of the Department of Civil Engineering, Kyambogo university, Uganda who recently wrote their exams were surprised when their lecturer decided to consider their plight in an odd way.
The Ugandan lecturer who has been described as ‘compassionate’ gave students writing exam a choice to cry if they so wish.
In the exam paper, asides from the usual instructions regarding how to answer the questions, the lecturer told students that they can cry if they want but they should do it quietly.
”Crying is allowed but please do so quietly,” the instruction read.
The exam which was for the course, Strength of Materials with code; TCBE 1201, took place on March 29, 2021.
A social media user shared a photo of the exam paper with the caption.
”This exam no be easy crying is allowed. #engineers #exam…”
