KOTA KINABALU: Urban folk may have easier access to the Internet, but there are some in rural areas who have to go to great lengths to get good connectivity – such as a student who had to spend the night in a tree and almost got stung by a hornet in order to sit for online examinations.

Veveonah Mosibin, an 18-year-old Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) student posted videos on her YouTube channel of what she had to do so she could sit for a few papers online.
