Photos show the attempts made by past students to cheat during the college entrance exam.

The cheating devices were shown off to Chinese media on June 6.

With the watch, pupils would take pictures of the tests using a button-hole camera hidden in the device. Then there would be a copper antenna loop stitched into their clothing to beam it out of the hall to someone sitting with a receiver.

This person would then look up the answer to the question and then send it back using a hidden earpiece.

Education is highly valued in China, with many parents sending their children miles each day just to go to school, and many are afraid they will be harshly punished for failure.

Streets surrounding exam centres are cordoned off in order to keep the environment around it quiet. Police cars are on stand by to pick up students that need help or have been caught up in rush hour traffic, reports the daily online.
