Bihar has become notorious for the amount of cheating that takes place during examinations. While this year, the school exams passed relatively cleanly without news of cheating, pictures of cheating during the Veer Kunwar Singh University BA Part II examination went viral, and the exam was cancelled.

In the pictures, students can be seen sitting casually on the floor of the college verandah with books and notes along with their examination papers. The state government has said that a probe will be ordered into the mass cheating that took place at the college affiliated to Veer Kunwar Singh University (VKSU).
