Students in China Use High Tech ‘James Bond’ Spy Devices to Cheat in College Exams

Nearly 10 million high school students sat China’s national college entrance exams last weekend. The ‘Gaokao’ is a fiercely competitive, make-or-break test that determines the path of a student’s life. Some tried to improve their chances by using high-tech equipment straight out of a James Bond film.

Police have released photos of some of the devices they confiscated, such as a camera hidden in a pair of glasses and a tiny receiver that looks like a coin.
