China Students Nab Cheats On Civil Service Test: State Media

From AFP:

A group of Chinese primary school students who were tasked with supervising a civil service test proved their worth by catching 25 exam cheats, state media said Thursday.

The 18 students in northwest China’s Gansu province uncovered the cheats while administering the test to 265 candidates for positions as judges, prosecutors and police officers, the Lanzhou Morning News said.

The students were brought in by the Liangzhou district government to supervise the test to ensure “openness and transparency,” the paper said.

Other supervisors included officials and middle-school teachers, it reported, but added that the pupils were solely responsible for catching the cheaters.
