The Chinese Ministry of Education has resorted to advanced technology to catch cheaters, while millions of high school students turn to Gaukau, the annual college entrance exam, which is seen as the key to a high-profile job.

Because entering a university is important for students in a country like China, where the population is about 1.4 billion people, to gain a lucrative job. With the difficulty of examination and high competitiveness, students resort to cheating.

For years, high school students have been using wireless scanners disguised as shields, belts, or hours. Some also use small earphones to communicate with partners who help them outside the exam room. These innovations have forced the authorities to intensify their game to counter these tactics.

Chinese media reported that the examination centers had published this year metal detectors, face recognition technology, fingerprints, cell-blocking devices, wireless network detectors, and even drones in their battle to eliminate fraud.

Even before the exam began on Tuesday, security officers arrested 52 people across the country. Cheaters and their accomplices face up to seven years’ imprisonment.

The universities in Shandong Province prevented students from taking leave on Tuesday and Wednesday to prevent any of them from pretending to be real examiners, the official Xinhua news agency reported on Wednesday.

It is noted that cheating is more common with exams that include multiple choice questions such as math and English. While confusing exams require writing cheaters articles. Writing articles is an important part of Chinese exams, and subjects vary from county to county.

In Beijing, students this year had to write an article on their vision of China in 2049, the centennial of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, or relations.
