A CRIMINAL law student was caught cheating a university exam – with a sneakily complicated method.
The professors admitted they couldn’t help but admire the lengths he went to to smuggle crib notes into the hall – but unfortunately there was one major flaw.
Pictures show how the Spanish student had borderline microscopic letters engraved with information from his curriculum on a set of blue Bic pens.
According to a friend of the defendant, he did this by “replacing the graphite lead of a mechanical pencil with a needle”.
It was reportedly “super easy for him to write with a pen.”
University of Malaga lecturer Yolanda de Lucchi, who tweeted about the bizarre scam attempt last Wednesday, said she was shocked to discover what he had achieved.
She said: “When I was cleaning up my office, I found this university relic that we confiscated from a student a few years ago.
“Criminal procedural law in bic pen. What art!”
Unfortunately for the student, he was arrested by sharp-eyed wardens who eventually confiscated his unique set of crib notes.
But his efforts certainly didn’t go unnoticed, with users on Twitter congratulating his creativity.
“We should make a museum out of these things,” said one user.
“The level of being able to write with pens and so much,” wrote another.
While a third added: “He should have passed just for the trouble involved.”
Meanwhile, several people pointed out that if the student put in so much effort to cheat, he would have used the time to study instead.
But needless to say, he’s not the only one.
In 2021, it was reported that student households were reportedly being cheated on online university exams taken at home as virtual exams replaced hall exams during the pandemic.
At the time, the Daily Telegraph reported how students forced to take exams in their bedrooms stared at shared questions with their roommates by photographing answers.
As others took turns completing sections of the exam papers, this was claimed.
