More Mobile Cheaters… This Time In Bangkok

Back in November we had the story of a massive mobile cheating scam in Korea, involving hundreds of students. Now, it looks like a bunch of students in Bangkok tried to do a similar trick for a military school entrance exam. Of course, the big difference this time was that the kids got caught. They were searched as they entered the room, and some of the kids acted suspiciously — leading to them getting caught, and admitting that others were doing the same thing. The other interesting point is that officials say the parents of these students were in on the scam and knew what was happening. Using mobile phones to cheat is nothing new, but as those administering exams are more aware of the issue and know what to look for, it shouldn’t be that big of a problem over time. It’s just that the technology is still a bit ahead of the watchers right now.
