Remote proctoring bars law students from using toilet


During a remotely proctored online exam, a number of students on the Bar Professional Training Course urinated in bottles and buckets and wore adult diapers rather than risk the possibility that their exam would be terminated if they left their screens long enough to go to the toilet. The Bar Standards Board responded to the story by saying that students are warned in advance that they will not be able to leave the room during an online exam and that they should take the exam in a test centre or alternative venue if they can't meet this requirement.
