KARACHI: After students in Karachi began to get into the swing of cheating through smartphones, they have found another smart way for cheating in examinations, ARY News reported.
For the first time a student was found cheating in Intermediate Exams through smartwatch on Tuesday.
A three-member vigilance team raided Government Degree Mehran College in Karachi and found a student cheating with the help of a smartwatch.
A smartwatch is a computerized wristwatch which can perform several basic tasks such as calculations and game-playing and run several mobile applications.
A member of vigilance team, Abdul Ghaffar said when he entered a classroom where students were taking exams, he saw a student repeatedly looking at his wristwatch as if watching time.
“I approached near him and asked him if he had any issue. He said he was just checking time. I walked away and watched him from some distance, he was still busy with his watch. Then, I confiscated his watch,” he said.
The team also confiscated some smartphone sets from the college.
Cheating has become a normal thing in Sindh and as per media reports it is rampant these days in examination halls.
