Desperate to clear his last bid at becoming a doctor, an Indian medical student was recently caught cheating by exam invigilators.

The student from the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial (MGM) Medical College had not only tried to use a Bluetooth device to con his way out of the exam, but he had tried to conceal the device by implanting it in his ears with the help of an ENT (Ear, Nose, and Throat Specialist), said reports.

The incident happened on Feb 21, when 78 medical students took part in the examinations.

The con was discovered when an invigilation team member randomly frisked the student while he was writing the examination and discovered a cellphone in the inner pocket of his trouser.

Although the phone was found to be turned on and paired with a Bluetooth device, the team could not find the said device on the student.

It was only when he was taken away and interrogated later did they find that the student had surgically fitted a skin-coloured tiny Bluetooth receiver in his ears.

He had confessed that he had attempted the desperate measure as a last resort, after having failed to clear his General Medical Exam since he was admitted to the college 11 years ago.

The college is currently deciding whether or not to refer the case to the police.

Crime doesn't pay indeed, as this student can attest to.
