Leading article: Beating cheating

This year, GCSE and A-level examination papers set by Edexcel will be fitted with a tracking device so that any thieves can be caught. The box in which the papers are stored will also be fitted with a timing device to ensure that it doesn't open before the morning of the exam in question. In case all of this fails, a humidity detector will be fitted to the box to show whether it has been opened by someone while it was stored in the school safe. All in all, it seems that 2007 will not be a good year for any student or teacher attempting to cheat.
