A woman was arrested for her elaborate scheme to cheat on her exam.
20-year-old Kaiwen Qian was a student at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, when she decided to hire a man to take her exam.
Qiun hired 21-year-old Longhua Wang, who is a student at the York University, to take the exam for her. She reportedly paid Wang $900 to take the exam on her behalf.
Nick Manning, a spokesperson for the school, said that they were tipped off to the possibility that one or more students may be cheating during the math exam.
The school implemented measures to detect the cheating, and that is how they discovered that a student from a different university was paid to come and take the test instead of one of their students.
Manning said that the school is investigating as to how Wang came into possession of a false Waterloo student ID card, containing his photo with Qian’s name on it.
Qian was arrested on charges related to impersonation and brandishing a forged document. She was released on $3,000 bail. Wang was arrested on similar charges.
Qian, who is an international exchange student, may be deported if she is found guilty of the charges.
