How examination cheating happens
There are several ways examination cheating can take place. First, school principals can compromise examinations and remove examination papers from their storage places. Develop the answer sheets prior to examinations and distribute the answers to students. Second, students can have access to examination papers and answer sheets prior to the examinations through linkage hotspots such as Measurement Services Division, Examination Printing Companies, Examination Developers/Writers, and Examination Freight companies, Provincial Examination Supervisors, School Principals and Teachers.
How cheating is detected
Examination cheating in some parts of the country is alerted through the public or sometimes through the media. The Measurement Services Division (MSD) of the Education Department monitors examinations strictly. Cheating in examination is not new to MSD and they are very cautious when dealing with examination cheating. They involve strict measures to crack down those involved in cheating in examination. For instance, a Grade 12 student in particular school who sits at the bottom of the Grade in internal marks cannot claim that he or she can get 90- 100 full marks in the National Examinations. If this does happen and if all students across the board do extremely well, MSD does analyze the actual examination scripts. So please note that YOU WON”T RUNAWAY IF YOU CHEAT IN EXAMS as there are other tactics employed by MSD to track cheating.
