Several Norwegian universities have had a rise in the number of cases of possible cheating during examinations this spring, NRK reports.
At the University of Agder, there are now 37 such cases that will be investigated. A definite increase from a regular year, according to the channel.
-” It is extraordinary. I have never experienced anything of this manner.” says Ragnhild Skomedal, the secretary for the Board of Appeals at the University of Agder.
The University of Tromsø(UiT) told NRK that they have encountered more cheating during the exams earlier this year than last year, with 17 cases this year compared to last year’s 8 cases. NTNU has also experienced more possible cases of cheating than normal.
The University of Oslo(UiO) will not comment about any suspicions on cheating just yet, while the University of Bergen(UiB) has shown no signs of an increased amount of cheating just yet, according to the Vice-Principal Oddrun Samdal.
