Teacher creates ingenious exam question to find cheaters and catches 14 students

Luke Matthews:

Students who assumed their teacher ‘on the older side’ wouldn’t be familiar with the latest cheating methods were caught red handed when he devised a brilliant method to catch them out.

A pupil in the engineering class explained that when they all sat down to take their final exam, about half the class left the room to use the bathroom during the test – far more than the usual.

The student said they assumed the vast majority were looking up answers on their phone, which ‘irritated me’ but they stayed focused and made their way through the paper.

After leaving the exam hall, the pupil remembered there was one particular question that wasn’t related to what they had all been taught in class, which had two parts – the Mirror UK reports.

Part A was ‘fairly easy’ but they had no idea how to do part B, so they simply left it blank as it only accounted for 5 marks out of 100.
