A university exam was cancelled after pigeons flew into the hall and disrupted students.

Students were sitting a law exam at Bangor University in Wales when some feathered friends decided to sneak a peak at their exam papers.

Kyle Gauvin, an exchange student visiting from the US, revealed to the university’s student paper Seren: ‘There were two pigeons that somehow got in the room and they were on top of the organs in the back of the room and would not just shut up. I guess a few people complained and then they ended the exam.’

Students were upset that their exam had been disrupted and that little had been done to solve the problem.

A first year student said: ‘My honest opinion is that the situation could have been handled better, the invigilators saw and knew they were there but did nothing other than say ‘If there is a problem with the pigeons then let us know and we will see what we can do.’

Hilariously, students have created a Twitter account for the naughty, gate-crashing pigeons.

A spokesperson for the university told reporters: ‘Bangor University has apologised to the students concerned and in addition to rescheduling the exams, has assured students that they will not be disadvantaged as a result of this disruption.’

He added: ‘The pigeons left the hall before the afternoon exam session, which went ahead as planned.’

Students will now have to re-sit the exam following the pigeon intruders’ appearance.
