Thirty-five young women were caught trying to cheat on their entrance exam into schools for teachers in the Mexican state of Michoacán; they allegedly had the correct answer pattern painted on their nails.
The entire admission process into teaching schools in Michoacán had been under suspicion of fraud since the first stage of exams, on the last day of July, when it was revealed that several of the students had bought the answers for 15,000 or 25,000 pesos. Although officially unproven, the claim was virtually confirmed by the astonishing test results in several Michoacán municipalities. According to Mexican media reports, 50 applicants who took the exam had answered all 100 question correctly, while another 300 had scores of 99 and 90 correct answers. This was unusual, as in other municipalities the highest score was 71 correct answers.

Cheating in examinations is not just peculiar to Niegria and other Africa countries but it is a world wide norm for lazy students. Presently, in Nigeria, students are writng the senior school examinations and with 5 months away from school due to the pandemic is a catalyst for mass cheating as many of the students had stayed away from their books while others claim poor preparations.
There are so many tactics employed in cheating such as smuggling sheets of papers with answers, torn pages of textbooks, etc into the examination hall. There are some other forms like writing on uniforms or getting assistance from supervisors but writing on nails is a whole new level.
This is really weird and an upgrade in cheating.
