Kids catch officials cheating in exam

TWENTY-FIVE people taking an examination for police and officials were caught cheating by primary school students monitoring the test in northwest China, Lanzhou Morning Post reported yesterday.

The examination on Sunday was part of a program to promote 66 policemen, judges and prosecutors in Liangzhou District of Wuwei City, capital of Gansu Province.

An official who normally would monitor such an exam was cited as saying he was afraid of potential revenge attacks if he busted someone for cheating, so 18 primary students were recruited to help monitor the exam.

"I did it because teachers asked me and I just want to be an honest student," one student told the newspaper.

The 25 cheaters will be given a zero mark for the exam, the report said.
