If one talks about cheating in exams in India, the picture of people climbing school walls in Bihar while trying to help out children with chits comes to one’s mind.

Apart from the external help, it won’t be wrong to say that students also do take a peek into their neighbours papers to look for answers or at least clues.

Teachers and invigilators find it difficult to manage a class of over 40-50 students as it is not possible to look at all the students.

To manage this situation and make sure that children don’t cheat in exams, this school in China has come up with an amazing idea. According to reports in the Chinese media, a school in the Anhui province of the country cut out skull-sized holes in newspaper sheets and had the students wear them.

With the newspaper on the heads, their eyes are restricted to their papers and others are also prevented from looking at their papers.

Some photographs of students wearing these newspapers have gone viral. While some called it a clever idea, others criticised the school for making the children look ridiculous.

One can only imagine this being done in India.
