1,000 Cheaters Busted in National Civil Servant Exam

A thousand applicants have been caught cheating on China’s competitive civil service exam, some by wearing wireless transmitters through which they received the correct answers, according to China Daily:

More than 300 exam sitters were caught cheating on site in the exam rooms on November 30, while another 700 were busted after their exam paper were found to have “shared much conformity”, the State Administration of Civil Service said here on Sunday.

The cheaters were mainly found in the northeastern province of Liaoning and the capital city of Beijing.

They would be disqualified for the exam, and, in serious cases, be barred from the civil servant exams for both central and local governments for the next five years, it said.
