According to the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA), exam papers for this year’s GCSE and A-Level tests are expected to once again appear online. The Register reports that in order to stop the practice, the QCA is asking for hosting firms to provide a 24-7 hotline number. Only through this measure can papers be taken down quickly enough to prevent cheating, the body argues.

To test out how necessary these extra measures are, we had a little Google around and weren’t able to find anything of use to exam fraudsters. Still, we’re sure that given time today’s tech-savvy teens will find a way to circumvent the regulations. And to think that in our day we had to make do with cobbled-together cheat sheets secreted within our sleeves. I guess that’s progress for you.
