The Last Jedi
Not Gaokao..but still..
Police in central China's Hubei Province said yesterday they had busted a number of gangs involved in leaking exam papers used in the national postgraduate entrance examination.
They said it was their first such case since an amendment to the law specified imprisonment of up to seven years for organizing cheating in national exams.
On December 26 last year, the first day of the exam, police received reports from students that answers to the English exam had been leaked to online groups. Suspicions fell on a training school owner, surnamed Wang.
An investigation into Wang led police to a man named Chen who told police he got the answers from a group in neighboring Henan Province. The capture of a gang, led by a man surnamed Li, whose members carried exam papers and answers from Henan to Hubei, led police to another alleged accomplice, surnamed Luo.
Luo, who worked in a printing house, is alleged to have taken pictures of exam papers and smuggled them out to Li who is said to have set up a training school and later worked in conjunction with training schools elsewhere.
Police subsequently apprehended alleged accomplices in Zhengzhou, Hebi and Luoyang, all cities in Henan, and in Guangzhou in south China’s Guangdong Province.
All 11 training schools involved in the case have been shut down and the exam scores of their students canceled.
