Exam allegedly stolen at USask

Biology exam postponed after copy taken “without authorization”


 
Though exam season usually brings with it a certain amount of mischief on campus, rarely do students become so desperate to avoid their final that they actually steal it. Yet this may have been what took place at the University of Saskatchewan this past week: campus newspaper The Sheaf reported that a biology exam that was supposed to take place Tuesday  has been postponed after officials suspect it was stolen and distributed amongst students.

In an email to students in the Biology 224 class, in which hundreds of students are enrolled, the department explained that they have “strong evidence” of a breach of security after a copy of the lab exam was taken “without authorization.” The department also said it was not sure how many copies of the exam had been circulated, if any had made it into students’ hands at all. “This is completely out of our hands and the most appropriate course of action is to cancel the lab exam,” read the email, according to The Sheaf.

The department told students it was considering either rescheduling the exam or simply excluding the final from the lab portion of the course.
