Chinese students forced to take exam wearing 'anti-cheating hats' made out of newspapers

This middle school in Chuzhou, China has found an ingenious way to curb the rampant cheating during examinations-newspaper hats.

With the yearly examination being one of the most important milestones of a child's life, many have taken to cheating to ensure success.

Photos circulated online showing the "anti-cheating hat", which is simply a piece of newspaper with a hole in the middle to fit the students' head.

According to the Shanghaiist, many netizens found the whole situation hilarious and praised the school for their ingenuity. 

However, some did raise concern if this silly-looking method would affect the students' mental wellbeing.
