This has been a major concern for some people which has given rise to some counter technology like the PocketHound by Berkeley Varitronics Systems which was unveiled, the PocketHound is a portable cellphone detector designed to let teachers covertly track cheaters. The PocketHound works by vibrating and lighting up each time there is a nearby transmission from a mobile phone — a sign a cheater could be in action. Once the device is set off, teachers can nab the offender .
Students who cheat in exams should know that cheating is a form of dishonesty, cheating carries serious consequences such as automatically failing the test, suspension or even expulsion and the cheater has gained a bad reputation and trust with their teachers and peers.
