TOKYO (Xinhua) – Japan’s two-day unified university entrance examinations started across the nation on Saturday amid stricter rules to prevent cheating.
Anti-cheating efforts have been stepped up in and around the venues after last year’s exams saw a stabbing incident and a leak of exam questions.
As part of the new anti-cheating policy, the administrators informed test takers that using earphones while taking the test will be considered cheating and that a police report may be made if such proof is discovered. Before the exam, test-takers were also required to put their mobile phones on their desks, turn them off and put them in their bags.
