Right, you may now turn over your daughter’s exam papers
A mother was arrested while attempting to sit an English exam for her teenage daughter.
The 52-year-old French woman wore thick make-up, low-cut jeans and Converse boots when she tried to pass herself off as 19-year-old daughter Laetitia.
An invigilator spotted the scam two hours into the three-hour examination and called police.
The woman, who has been named only as Caroline D, confessed and said she had wanted to ensure her daughter got the best result.
‘A confrontation during the exam could have disturbed the other candidates and turned into a reason to cancel the test for everyone,’ said a spokesman for Bossuet Notre-Dame school in Paris.
The daughter had been due to take the English baccalaureate to try to get into university.
