To a college student, there’s nothing worse than running out of time during an exam. Oh wait, yes there is. A Russian instructor is accused of making her students sit a 23-hour oral test, stretching from 10 a.m. on June 26 until 9 a.m. the next morning, without allowing them to leave the classroom for bathroom breaks or to hit the vending machine. The students have also alleged that the professor left the room to drink periodically.
She’s denied hitting the bottle between questions, but said that the difficult subject matter — nuclear physics — made the marathon test a necessity. “She isn’t Russian. After 23 hours it [seems] that she was taking her time about it,” one commenter wrote. ZING!
