No cheating now!

On today’s show we heard about the school in India which is facing criticism for making students sit an exam with cardboard boxes on their heads in an attempt to crack down on cheating.

Officials at the Bhagat Pre-University College in the South Indian state of Karnataka asked students to wear cardboard boxes on top of their heads to prevent them from looking at the exam papers of their neighbours.

The front of the boxes had holes in them so that the students could see what they were doing, but not anyone else’s exam sheet.

Rather like when you play as an astronaut when you’re a kid, but in an exam hall and much less fun.

Staff said that some of the students even brought their own boxes.

However local officials have now said that, “Whatever be the purpose, [the students] cannot be made to wear cartons for writing exams. There is no rule or advice from us.”

Later in the programme, Margaret Mills took us up the road to Blackmore to learn about a woman named Elizabeth Blount and how she came close to being the mother of a King of England.
