ND asks for student union head’s resignation over defence of exam cheats

eKathimerini — A group of 106  students at the University of Patras in western Greece, most of them first-years , submitted the same paperwork in four separate coursework exercises, the head of the business management department said.

After authorities decided to exclude the cheaters, who apparently used the same essay-writing service from exams in September the local branch of New Democracy affiliated students union, DAP, condemned the measure as “an extreme move that will have tragic consequences on the smooth continuation of these students’ studies.”

New Democracy on Tuesday asked for the resignation of the head of iDAP at the University of Patra. “New Democracy demands that everyone respects the rules without exception,” the conservative opposition said in a statement.
