Drunk Lecturer Forces Students to Sit 23-Hour Exam Without Toilet Breaks

Incredible story! Interesting that no student sitting the test stood up to her during the exam:

A drunk lecturer at a Russian university forced her students to sit a 23-hour-long exam – not even allowing them toilet breaks.

Lecturer Landysh Zaripova, however, frequently left the room and students claim it was to top up her drink.

Students said Physics lecturer Zaripova ‘stank of alcohol’.

One student told the Russian media: ‘Towards the end, everyone was just sitting there, totally exhausted.

‘The lecturer would go into another room, drink, come back and start telling us about her business.’

The exam started at 10am on June 26 and went on overnight finishing at 9am the following morning.

The incident took place in the Russian province of Tatarstan at Kazan State University in the province’s capital.

‘Do you think I am stupid enough to come to class drunk?’ Zaripova told Russian newspaper L!fe News.

 She claims she was sober and that the students decided to take revenge on her for failing them.

The head of the University’s Physics Department, Albert Aganov, denied that the lecturer was under the influence of alcohol. He said: ‘I would have fired her immediately, if I had seen her drunk.’

He added that even if the allegations were found to be true it would not lead to the dismissal of Zaripova as she is on a 5 year contract which cannot be broken.

If only the rest of society had such trusting and supportive bosses. Job security must be very high among Russian academics.

Come to think of it, I’ve sat for exams that have felt 23-hours long.
