The Cheaters

A university selected

One hundred students

For an elite course

At the end of the first year

They sat an exam

But someone hacked

The computer system

Changing the results

So that everyone had passed

It was not noticed

Until the second year

When some students struggled

More than others

The administrators

Approached the Dean

And let them know

That the year group

Contained good and bad students

They offered to track down

The original results

But the Dean said:

‘Let’s just wait

And see what the next set

Of exams bring

We’ll mark them by hand

And sort the wheat

From the weeds’
