Students of the Department of Civil Engineering, Kyambogo university, Uganda, were met with a surprise recently as they wrote their exams when their lecturer chose to identify with their plight but in a rather odd way.
The Ugandan lecturer, who teaches the course, Strength of Materials, has been described on social media as ‘oddly compassionate’ because he gave his students writing the exam a choice to cry if they so wish.
In their exam paper, alongside the usual instructions regarding how to answer the questions, the lecturer told the students that they can cry if they want but “should do so quietly”.
”Crying is allowed but please do so quietly,” the instruction read.
A social media user shared a photo of the exam paper with the caption;
”This exam no be easy crying is allowed. #engineers #exam…”
