A CRIMINAL law student was caught cheating in a university exam – using a deviously intricate method.
Professors admitted they couldn't help admiring the lengths he went to way to sneak crib notes into the hall – but unfortunately there was one major flaw.
Images show how the Spanish student had engraved borderline microscopic letters containing information from his syllabus across a set of blue Bic pens.
According to a friend of the accused, he did so by “replacing the graphite lead of a mechanical pencil with a needle.”
It reportedly made it “super easy for him to write on a pen.”
Malaga University lecturer Yolanda de Lucchi, who tweeted about the bizarre effort to cheat last Wednesday, said she was shocked when she discovered what he had achieved.
She said: “Tidying up my office, I found this university relic that we confiscated from a student a few years ago.
“Criminal procedural law in bic pens. What art!”
Unfortunately for the student he was busted by eagle-eyed invigilators who eventually confiscated his unique set of crib notes.
But his efforts certainly didn’t go unnoticed as users on Twitter congratulated his creativity.
