Discouraging French students from cheating
Issued on: Modified:
More than 700,000 French high school students are living through the most decisive - and stressful - week of their lives as they take their end of high school exam known as the baccalaureat. The pressure is huge and arguably, so is the pressure to cheat. Last year 250 students were sanctioned, some banned from taking any kind of exam for four years. This year the ministry of education is taking new, tougher measures to try and discourage bacheliers from even trying.
