Drones crack down on high school grads cheating on tests

Cheaters never win, especially if they get caught.

The annual National College Entrance Exam — known as gaokao — is the only way to get into college in China.

The stakes are so high that for years students have come up with some pretty ingenious tricks to one up their competition: cameras in eyeglasses drink bottles, armpits and pens that can transmit images of the test questions to other students.

Now, officials in China are taking extreme measures to prevent students from cheating on the toughest test in the land — with silent flying drones.

The drones will detect suspicious radio signals released by the cheaters’ transmitters and basically will be the worst tattletale ever.

We have a strange feeling that, when the cheaters are caught, the punishment could be a bit worse than a trip to the principal’s office.
