How not to cheat on a school exam

Advertising

 

 

We have heard of cheat sheets hidden in pencil cases or glued to rulers, maths formulas saved into calculators, answers exchanged with fellow students through text messages, or lessons recorded orally and then listened to during an exam thanks to hidden headsets. This, however, we had not seen before…

 

Instead of memorizing his lessons, a student of a business school in Senegal's capital Dakar decided to meticulously rewrite it on the back of his classroom’s chairs.

 

 

While it’s nothing to be proud of, this unconventional method at least demonstrates the student’s industry and meticulous hand-writing…

 

These images raise more questions than answers: Is the handwriting actually large enough to be read? Was the student actually convinced that no one would notice this scheme? And most importantly: wouldn’t it have been far easier to just learn the material?
