Student Caught Using 10-Meter Long Cheat Sheet in Exam - as part of the news series by GeoBeats. Think back to your academic days - remember how happy you'd be if the teacher permitted a one page cheat sheet so you could jot down some key information for an exam Well, one high school student in Kazakhstan really pushed the definition of a 'cheat sheet'. He was caught in a college entrance exam with an incredible 11-meter long cheat sheet that had about 25 thousand answers covering five subjects. Certainly, students these days are under a lot of pressure but to go this far is simply unheard of. One local education official took note of the hard work that went into creating the cheat sheet and was regretful that the student would not receive a good test grade. In another remarkable cheating example, The New York Times reported on an incident in China: “One group of parents…outfitted their children with tiny earpieces, persuaded a teacher to fax them the questions and then transmitted the answers by cellphone. Another father equipped a student with a miniscanner and had nine teachers on standby to provide the answers.”
