Teachers made thousands of dollars by helping students in ‘O’ level scam

What has been described as a sophisticated racket has been uncovered in Singapore, where a teacher connived with the mangement of a school to help students pass their ‘O’ levels in a fraudulent manner.

It is being alleged that the teacher would himself sit for the exams as a private candidate, and would send video clips of the questions to accomplices, who would then forward the correct answers to students who would have paid for this ‘service’.

The racket came to light when one of the students was caught, after an invigilator heard strange noises and went to investigate. When the student was asked to open his waistcoat, the invigilator found a mobile, bluetooth equipment, and an earphone.

It is also alleged that the principal at the school where the teacher was employed was in on this scam, as well as two other teachers, who jointly were collecting thousands of Singapore dollars in payment.
