Students use email to cheat during 'e-Commerce' ex
Students use email to cheat during 'e-Commerce' exam in Japan.
Twenty-six students of highly respected Hitotsubashi University have used a mobile phone e-mail service to cheat during an exam.
The incident, which took place in July during an end of term exam for the 'e-Commerce' course, came to light because the cheating students made the same mistakes in their incorrect answers.
One of some 550 students sitting the exam sent his answers to another student via a mobile phone e-mail service, and his answers had quickly spread around the examination hall.
However, a lecturer in charge of the course noticed that nearly 30 students made identical mistakes and ordered them to resit the exam.
Fifteen students turned up for the reexamination. One of them was able to get a pass mark this time but 14 others returned a blank paper.
They admitted to the lecturer that they cheated during the original exam.
Administrators of the top Tokyo institution failed 26 students -- the student who sent his answers via e-mail, 15 who failed in the resit and 10 others who refused to take the exam again.
