[The Chosun Ilbo, October 29 2007] Ed. Ministry Declares War On High-tech Cheating

Police and Korea's Ministry of Education are on alert ahead of the College Scholastic Ability Test for 2008 scheduled for Nov. 15. The two are working together to prevent cheaters from using high-tech tools during the exam, including micro-cameras, microchips and other devices.

The ministry is being extremely cautious following an incident in China where cheaters were caught using high-tech devices during the nation's university entrance exam, and incidents during the 2005 test in Korea where students were caught misusing mobile phones.


The ministry also said it will inspect cars parked near exam venues on the day of the test since cases of high-tech cheating will most likely happen near the venues.
