The Adjudicator collected the the exam papers and the answer sheets. He sat at the desk and started to put them in order according to the Examination Numbers given to the engineering students. He noticed one particular answer sheet was lighter than the others. Retreating to a memory in his past, he didn’t realise he spoke out his thought loud enough for everyone to hear. “Oh no, it’s happened again.”
The students who were still in their seats all looked towards him for an explanation or reassurance of his sudden outburst. He continued to look through the question papers. One had a sheet missing and the student who got that paper answered fewer questions than the rest. A particular oversight had occurred along a chain from the printing to the receipt of the paper on the day of the examination. What a confusion!
