The students who feel they have the right to
cheat

Students are often keen to exercise
their rights but recently there has been an interesting twist - some in India
are talking about their right to cheat in university exams.



"It is our democratic right!" a thin, addled-looking man named Pratap Singh
once said to me as he stood, chai in hand, outside his university in the
northern state of Uttar Pradesh. "Cheating is our birthright."



Corruption in the university exam system is common in this part of India. The
rich can bribe their way to examination success. There's even a whole subset of
the youth population who are brokers between desperate students and avaricious
administrators.



Then there's another class of student altogether, who are so well known
locally - so renowned for their political links - invigilators dare not touch
them. I've heard that these local thugs sometimes leave daggers on their desk in
the exam hall. It's a sign to invigilators: "Leave me alone... or else."



So if those with money or political influence can cheat, poorer students ask,
why shouldn't they?

They make other arguments too. When I was working in
western Uttar Pradesh, Singh ushered me into the bowels of a smoky canteen in
the middle of his campus. Kicking a stray dog off a chair, he took out a packet
of cigarettes.



"India's university system is in crisis," he began, lighting up and blowing
the smoke towards the ceiling. "Cheating happens at every level. Students bribe
to get admission and good results. Research students get professors to write
their dissertations. And the professors cheat too, publishing articles in bogus
journals."



I sympathised with Singh. On one occasion, the registrar at a college in
Uttar Pradesh sent masters students' dissertations to be graded by students at
another college. This type of thing is common, but in this case, school pupils
ended up marking masters-level work.



"I honestly don't know whether to laugh or cry," he said, hunched over the
Formica table in the canteen and shooing away the flies. "The equipment in our
science labs should be ripped out and thrown down a well," he added. "It is like
universities were in the 1950s in Britain."



Refusing to cheat, many students work late into the night to pass university entrance exams Refusing to cheat, many students work into the night

I tried to study properly, but my seniors just told me:
'Buy the cheat books'”



End Quote Pinki Singh Student


A while back, I brought up the topic with Pinki Singh,
in the female hostel of a prominent college in Uttar Pradesh. We were sitting in
a space that was half study area and half courtyard for urban livestock.



"I will tell you about education," she said. "The curriculum is poor, and
when lecturers won't teach properly, you have to get private tutorials or just
memorise from textbooks."



"If you really want to know the truth," she added, "there's no point in
studying properly. You just need to buy one of the cheat books sold in the
bazaar and learn the answers."



"In my first year doing history I tried to study properly, but my seniors
just told me: 'Buy the cheat books.'"



Some of the new private universities are no better. She told me about one
that was established recently, calling itself Zap University.



Students paid large sums of money to enrol online, but then the university
just disappeared from the internet. It had no physical location and no trace
could be found on the web. Pinki Singh told me: "It just went 'zap'".



As I think back to these conversations, I conjure up in my mind an image of
the universities I've seen in Uttar Pradesh. Etched in my memory are mouldering
books, leaky hostels and bare lawns.



And then I remember the signs of opulence that surround some of this decay.
The expensive SUVs and three-storey houses of the principals, the fancy shopping
malls and the few universities in the region that are genuinely offering world
class education - their flashy signboards and glass fronts mocking the ordinary
colleges.
