is a notice that appeared in the social media chat room of Inha University medical students.

It says that a large number of students gathered for the online exams to be taken by themselves, and that they are conducting their own investigations.

Cheating students are medical students and first and second grades.

On the 12th of last month, the school caught and investigated the misconduct of the first and second graders, and the internal reports revealed that they had cheated on the first and first grades.

The university found that 50 out of 57 first graders and 41 out of 52 second graders committed cheating during the exam.

This is more than 80% of the first and second grade students.

[Inha University official: I think it was done in multiple choice. It's online. Basically, we notified the students before taking the exam. Do it on your own (because of ethics).

They shared the correct answer with SNS, as well as up to 9 people who were tested together.

Most of the cheating participants were reported to have scored high.

The first year of basic medical science is a 5-credit midterm exam, and the second grade musculoskeletal and endocrine system exams are included in the unit credit.

The faculty changed the order of the problems in the subject or set a time limit per problem, but there was no monitoring device such as a video cam.

Inha University held a disciplinary committee to determine the level of disciplinary action for misconduct, and said it would take the final exam on a face-to-face basis.
