COVID19 Pandemics has changed people´s routines all over the world, some work at home, others teach or study from the comfort zone of their own living rooms, and recently, the admission process to Baja California State University (UABC), which involves an exam, was offered “online” and ”on site”, and applicants did it last weekend.
But Monday morning started with a press release from the UABC, where they informed that the admission test had been declared NULL, saying that there had been “security failures” in the process, so all those students who chose to do the test online, have to do it all over again, because those so called “failures” were nothing more than students cheating in order to pass the test and guarantee their entrance to the State university.
Mexico has suffered a lot due to corruption, many people talk about corrupt governments and businessmen, but this pitiful matter, students cheating in order to gain access to a public university, goes to show how desperate they are and how they are willing to do anything to be able to study college, and the test will be applied to all those who did it online, because a few students deemed it proper to cheat and ensure their college education, shame on them.
