Penalty for children appearing for Board exams - isn’t this too harsh?

It is important to imbibe the value of discipline in our children, however is this the right way and is it justified? Today 7 children were not allowed to appear for 10th CBSE as they reported at 10.04 am. The reporting time was 10 am and exams were supposed to start at 10.30 am. Agree that it calls for some punishment but turning a complete deaf ear to their pleas and leaving them completely shattered - isn’t this too harsh on the young minds and how is it going to affect their morale?
