The teacher, however, said that the scores of the practical test were not added to the final results. "Students called us on the pretext of holding a meeting and said their results were spoiled. It happened because their practical marks were not included in results. That was to be done by the headmaster. So we couldn't have taken any step in this regard," Suman told ANI.
