The Swedish Council for Higher Education has failed 42 people for cheating on the national university aptitude test, högskoleprovet, reports Swedish Radio News.

Two out of the 42 people were failed for acting suspiciously when they took the test, the remaining 40 were failed after the Council for Higher Education had analysed their results and found that the answers were identical. Tuula Kuosmannen, head of operations at the council, tells Swedish Radio that it is unlikely that it is just a coincidence.

"Many of the answers are so similar that we don't believe that they have come up with them themselves. We believe that they have had help from someone else," says Kuosmannen.

This is the first time that the council has failed a group of people for organised cheating. The people who cheated will, however, get a chance to take the test again next month and they will not be reported to the police, says Tuula Kuosmannen.

Approximately 60,000 Swedes took the test this year.
