Police officers were soon called to the scene, but in an effort not to disrupt the students taking the exam, Caroline was allowed to continue writing for two out of the three hours. Eventually, the proctor asked the mother to step outside, where she was arrested on suspicion of fraud.
No harm, no foul, right? Not exactly. If convicted of the charges, Caroline’s daughter could be barred from retaking the Baccalauréat exam for the next five years. Thanks a lot, mom.
