Indian students expelled for mass cheating in exams

About 600 students face harsh measures this year after being caught cheating in secondary school graduation tests.

    Hundreds of students in India have been expelled for cheating on a major examination and their parents are largely to blame. Critics say the incident highlights a widespread problem within India's education system.

    About 600 students have been caught cheating this year alone in the 10th grade tests and they could be banned from taking exams for three years, forced to pay a fine or even be jailed.
