Several hundred students on Sunday staged demonstration blocking Jaidevpur Chourasta intersection in Gazipur protesting a government move to increase the number of ‘creative questions’ in both SSC and HSC examinations.

The blockade triggered severe traffic congestion creating huge sufferings to the commuters, witnesses said.

A protester said previously they had to answer six creative questions in two hours and ten minutes. But with the new move, they have to answer seven questions in two hours and twenty minutes which they find ‘very difficult’.

Students said if the new system is not changed they would go for tougher movement.
