Photographs posted to Bangkok’s Kasetsart University alumni Facebook page appears to show students wearing a “helmet”, which consist of a piece of paper wrapped around the head and pieces of paper stapled to either side.

Kasetsart University is a public university, ranked one of the best in Thailand and with a focus on agriculture, food, technology and innovation.

The low-tech anti-cheating helmet invention doesn’t look sophisticated, but would function like horse blinkers and prevent wearers from glancing to the side — which should prevent any sneaky peeks at neighbours’ answers.

And it seems the anti-cheating helmet has caught on, with Weerachai Phutdhawong, a University of Agricultural Sciences associate professor, posting photos of several versions on Facebook.

One design resembles a cardboard box, with a hole cut out for the neck and one side removed, so that wearers can see.

But another version has only a small slit cut out for the eyes, to limit vision even further.

In February this year, the Thai Education Ministry on Wednesday asked the Department of Special Investigation to investigate suspected cheating in its teacher recruitment examination.

And claims of widespread cheating in a national police exam was also investigated by the Royal Thai Police Office (RTPO)
