Students have learnt to pass exams with e-mail and MMS
While university teachers have become accustomed to bought graduation and year papers, now they have to contend with a new trick of students. The fact is that students have learnt to take exams without knowledge and cribs - they receive all answers during the exam directly to their phones or tablet computers. This was reported by the free ads site Slando, where offers of such unusual services to lazy students have began to appear.
To receive such help, a student only needs to discreetly photograph the examination paper and send it via MMS or e-mail. "The other end of the line" solves the tasks and sends them back as a photo or a text file. A student copies the answers, and an examination is passed.
"Helpers" assess their work differently. For example, Andriy, who calls himself a candidate of physical and mathematical sciences, asks for his services of solving tasks in physics and mathematics 150 UAH and more per exam. And Marina promises to help pass an English exam for 500 UAH. She is ready to hold the line all the time, if a student uses an earphone, or to send answers as photos and files. Tests and credits will cost a little less.
Such offers on Slando are yet sparse, but given that the exam period will begin soon, they can gain high popularity.
Uzhgorod.in decided to ask Transcarpathian students if they know of such advanced methods of cheating. Student of UzhNU Irina said: "I have not seen such ads, and I rarely cheat on exams. But if I can, I ask help from friends - text them the questions and hope for an answer." Dmytro, the Mukachevo State University student, said: "Yes, I know about such "tricks", and even saw how they do it. But I do not want to risk." Nataliya and Marina from the Transcarpathian Art Institute admitted: "We have cheated using earphone, a phone with the internet access. Of course, standard handwritten notes have also been used. But we have never used MMS-ing."
