A Chinese police official has been arrested for stealing another girl's exam results and passing it off as his daughter's to ensure her a place in college, a newspaper said on Wednesday.
Competition for college places is fierce in China where stories of cheating surface every year. Students pay for leaked exam papers, smuggle in mobile phones and electronic dictionaries, or pay others to take the exam for them.
Wang Zhengrong, formerly of the Public Security Bureau in Shaodong county in the southern province of Hunan, was charged with forging and altering official documents and seals in 2004, the China Youth Daily said.
Since 2004!? Wow. So since 2004 some rich girl is in college (and probably graduated college stealing someone elses' results) and some poor village girl is wandering around pondering how she failed that test.
Actually this being China, I'm surprised the dad was arrested at all. I'm sure this happens all the time to alot of students. If you have money or your father is in a position of power, you'll get places.
