The computer system in the hall did little to help ease the population as it malfunctioned repeatedly leaving thousand stranded and some too were not able to finish up on time while some couldn’t even sit for theirs even after being at the exam location for some time since the number of computer system wasn’t up to the number who are to sit for the exam.”
