Madras University mass copying: Fine imposed on four colleges

At a meeting last month, the university syndicate resolved that the process of penalising repeat offenders would be made permanent and that the institutions would also lose the privilege of being named examination centres. Around 120 colleges in Chennai, Tiruvallur and Kancheepuram districts are affiliated to the university.

Syndicate members said flying squads had reported that students at many of the university's affiliated colleges were in possession of mobile phones, printed copies of answers and hand-written sheets in the exam centres. In one case, a student had placed a 500 note in the answer booklet, provided a cellphone number and requested the examiner for pass mark.

In one exam centre, the answer scripts of all the candidates were were found to be identical in all respects, indicating mass copying. In another case, a student was found to have submitted two answer sheets, a syndicate member said. In another case of suspected examination malpractice, the same handwriting was found in the answer scripts of four different candidates.
