“The students who feel they have the right to cheat”


Students are often keen to exercise their rights but recently there has been an interesting twist – some in India are talking about their right to cheat in university exams.

“I will tell you about education. The curriculum is poor, and when lecturers won’t teach properly, you have to get private tutorials or just memorise from textbooks. If you really want to know the truth, there’s no point in studying properly. You just need to buy one of the cheat books sold in the bazaar and learn the answers.”

– Pinki Singh, college student in Uttar Pradesh
