Cheating on the rise

Swedish universities are discovering more and more cases of students cheating. Last year, 750 students were warned or suspended after cheating – that's up by nearly half since the year before, and 70 percent more than in 2005.

But cheaters still make up a very small group of the overall student population in Sweden, at just 0.15 percent, according to the Swedish National Agency for Higher Education.

Plagiarism is the most widespread form of cheating. It has been getting easier for teachers to detect with the help of special search engines that can identify whether parts of a paper have been lifted from another source. This is thought to be one of the reasons for the growing number or cheating cases.
