Cheating cases in the college scholastic aptitude test (CSAT) have doubled in four years, data shows.

According to data Rep. Bak Hong-geun of the National Assembly’s Education, Culture, Sports and Tourism Committee received from the Ministry of Education, Tuesday, the number of students caught cheating grew from 97 in 2011 to 209 last year.

A total of 818 cases occurred over five years.

The students involved in these cases had their grades invalidated and three students were stripped of the opportunity to take the test the following year.

The largest number of cases involved students with smartphones, which are not allowed in the examination halls.

The next most common violation involved students solving questions for another subject during the time allocated for a certain subject (325 cases).

Filling out the answer sheet after the test (58 cases), having other electronic devices with them (39) and disobeying the supervisor’s instructions (20) followed in the list of violations.

“As much as cases of cheating are increasing in the CSATs — in which fairness is critical — education authorities should not only clamp down on dishonest practices but also seek measures to prevent this from happening,” Bak said.

Meanwhile, this year’s CSAT will take place nationwide Thursday.

    Exactly what we support. However, for ESL students, things can turn worse as most of them are not fully capable of writing.
