Students catch 25 cheaters during exam for officials

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

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

The report said 265 candidates took the written examination on Sunday. The district assigned disciplinary committee officials and some teachers to supervise the exam.

One student who helped monitor the exam told the newspaper: "I did it because teachers asked me and I just want to be an honest student."

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.

Before the 120-minute examination, the eighteen primary students who helped monitor the exams were assigned to different rooms.

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