Students caught cheating at exams... Via SMS
Posted on 1-Feb-2003 00:33 | Tags Filed under: News



Six students have admitted cheating in exams, using their mobiles to receive SMS with answer to the exams.

Students would use the mobile to send out a request for an answer, and "helpers" would look up the answers on the internet, where the exam answer key was posted after the exam started.

The article says cheating is growing, but using mobiles is something never heard of.
