However, Bihar science 'topper' Saurabh Shrestha shocked his examiners during the re-examination saying he'd 'end his life if they continued asking him questions'.

Saurabh maintained that of late, he'd been under a lot of pressure owing to the media scrutiny and hence, was unable to answer the examiners' questions.

Out of the 14 students that were to be evaluated, 11 have been given a clean chit.

Ruby Rai however, had skipped the re-examination citing health reasons and thus, has been given one week's time to re-appear.
