Nervous student caught with 56 cheat notes

A student in the north of Sweden was recently discovered to have been hiding a large number of cheat notes about his person when sitting for an exam at Umeå University.


According to local paper Västerbottenskuriren (VK), it was when the student returned after an extended visit to the toilet that an observant exam supervisor wanted him to explain the folded up A4-sized sheet of paper she had found by his seat.

The student then fell to his knees, only to expose another paper peeping out from inside his sleeve.

The invigilator asked the student to empty his pockets. After some coaxing the man did as she asked, and unearthed a bundle of cheat notes from one of his pockets.

After this discovery, the student asked if he could be allowed to go to the toilet to blow his nose. While there, he attempted to lock the door, but the proctor stopped him and told him to further empty his pockets.

The invigilator then discovered that the man had several more collections of notes on him.

In total, the supervisor managed to find 56 cheat notes that the student had hidden in his pockets and about his person to help him pass the exam.

The incident has been reported to the university’s disciplinary committee, according to the paper.
