Was it the difficulty of the paper that led to students storming out of an exam room this week or had they been given the wrong paper, as some have claimed?

That's the question Twitter is asking after a video went viral showing University of Limpopo education students barging out of the room after complaining that the philosophy exam was 'too difficult'. 

The university's acting spokesperson Johannes Selepe told eNCA that they will be investigating the incident, but couldnโ€™t confirm though if the students will be given an opportunity to rewrite the paper.

Some users even compared the walkout to the #GabuzaChallenge, a reference to Orlando Pirates striker Thamsanqa Gabuza who walked off the pitch on Tuesday night.

Others came to the defence of the students, saying they boycotted because they had been given the wrong module paper:
