Not allowed to cheat, students lay siege in ChinaWhat should have been a scene of 800 Chinese students quietly writing their university entrance exams erupted into an angry protest after invigilators tried to stop them from cheating.
Earlier this month, students at a high school in Hubei Province were aggrieved to find they would be supervised not by their own teachers, but by 54 external invigilators roped in from different schools across the county, The Telegraph reported.
The move followed last year’s exam debacle when the province’s education department found 99 identical papers in one subject. Invigilators screened students with metal detectors to find hidden mobile phones and secret transmitters. As soon as the exams finished, a protest broke out.
A crowd of parents and students chanted: “We want fairness. There is no fairness if you do not let us cheat.” The protesters said that cheating was endemic in China, so being forced to appear for the exams without help put students at a disadvantage.
Hundreds of police personnel cordoned off the school and the local government conceded that “exam supervision had been too strict and some students did not take it well”.
