According to news resource Kent Online, six of the children required hospital treatment following the accident during an exam at the Minister College when a heating duct fell from the ceiling of the educational institution's sports hall roof.
Other students also suffered shock at the time of the incident, which could lead to damages settlements should it remain an issue and progress into a form of post-traumatic stress disorder.
The pupils were among some 157 sitting their SAT exams when a rope suspension failed and the duct crashed to the floor.
Sam Stickings, a student at the school, described the incident as like it "was happening in slow motion" as a large part of the duct landed in an aisle between desks of those present.
