It was alleged that students caught Covid-19 in and around Paris, the French capital, were forced to take the upper Vocational Diploma exams. Academic Exam Services said the charges were unfounded.
According to reports in the national press, some students learned that they had caught a new type of coronavirus (Covid-19) before the Upper Vocational Diploma (BTS) English exam held on Friday last week. Students who called the exam center were told that even if they were sick, they would get zero points if they did not take the exam.
Students who did not want to score zero despite the risk of infecting other students had to take the exam.
On the other hand, videos and photos shared on social media showed that adequate hygiene measures were not taken at the exam center, and many people waiting to take the exam in the crowd were not wearing their masks properly.
