A number of candidates from the Huangdi No. 7 Middle School revealed that the invigilation yesterday was “not very strict”.

Huangpi district education bureau reported that the invigilator’s invigilator qualification for the college entrance examination has been stopped, and the dereliction of duty of relevant personnel will be further investigated and dealt with by the district discipline inspection and supervision authority.
“According to the information published at present, the invigilator asked the examinees to bring their mobile phones into the examination room. In the process of invigilation, students were not found cheating in taking photos in time. There was indeed dereliction of duty, and certain administrative punishment should be given.” Zheng Xinxin, secretary of the Party committee and administrative law scholar of Hubei University Law School, said.
Tong Dehua, professor of criminal School of Justice of Zhongnan University of Economics and Law, analyzed that the mobile phone was not only brought into the college entrance examination room, but also analyzed from the perspectives of answer cards and bright light, obviously, it was shot from the desk top to bottom.
“Starting from this kind of sign analysis, it cannot be ruled out that security personnel and invigilators know but do not stop it.” Tong Dehua said that if the relevant personnel knew and implemented help, they would face the problem of accountability and even legal responsibility.
Zheng Xinxin believes that if invigilators know about it, they even cheat with candidates, or they are investigated for criminal responsibility according to law.
The Ministry of Education reported that the invigilators had been replaced and the invigilators had been strengthened. The invigilators involved had been further investigated by the discipline inspection and supervision organs.
“At present, there are many doubts about the whole incident. Whether there are problems with the metal detector used in the examination room and whether there are loopholes in the signal shielding instrument can be concluded only after in-depth investigation.” Zheng Xinxin said.
Tong Dehua believes that relevant parties should also carefully investigate the test sites involved and investigate them one by one to determine whether there is only this incident or the possibility of group cheating and respond to public concerns.
The Ministry of Education said in the circular that the enrollment committee of Hubei province was required to organize education, public security, discipline inspection and supervision, radio management, market supervision and other departments to further investigate cheating candidates, the dereliction of duty and dereliction of duty involved in the examination site and relevant institutions conducted a thorough investigation in all aspects, the whole process and the whole chain. YIFAYI regulations were severely punished, and the fairness and justice of the college entrance examination were firmly maintained.
