There is no shortage of students cheating at entrance exams in India. However when technology and sophistication is used to cheat it opens the possibilities of what could happen next. At the All India Post Graduate Medical Entrance Examination held at AIIMS, (All India Institute of Medical Sciences) Delhi, cell cameras and bluetooth devices were used to crack tests. Using mobiles strapped and concealed under the sleeves of shirts, the question paper at the exam was scanned.
The scanned image was sent and downloaded at a control room from where the paper was solved and answers dictated to individuals that were wearing compact bluetooth devices concealed under the color with earring-like headphones. Five individuals have been arrested including the accused and kingpin of the entire operation, Mohit Chaudhry (Second-Year MBBS, Ujjain). The news of the mode of operation used to cheat has shocked the medical fraternity. Investigations are on to find out if similar modus operandi was used in All India Entrance Exams in the past. Motit and his team usually charged around Rs 40 lacs per person in return of a guarantee to clear the exam with flying colors.
