100 university students caught cheating

More than 100 Greek university students have been caught in a mass cheating scandal, reports AFP.

The group at the University of Patras, most of them first-year students, submitted the same paperwork in four separate coursework exercises, the head of the business management department said. "These exercises constitute 30% of the final grade," Associate Professor Yiorgos Androulakis told state agency ANA.

The university banned the 106 students from sitting the rest of their exams in September. "Of all the possible sanctions, this is the mildest," Androulakis said. "They can catch up... students fail many classes in their first two years in any case."
