The most common form of cheating is trying to use a mobile phone to get extra help. But this inquiry has warned of another growing high tech problem; pupils connecting to the internet through their watches.

最常見的作弊形式是試圖使用手機來獲得額外的幫助。但這項調查提醒人們應注意另一個日益嚴重的「高科技」問題——學生們在考試時通過手錶上網。

Such smart watches are already banned in exams, but inquiry chairman Sir John Dunford said that invigilators struggle to tell the difference between a conventional watch and an online version, and so a blanket ban was needed.

這種能上網的智能手錶已經被禁止在考試中使用,但是此次調查的主席,約翰‧鄧福德爵士表示,監考人員很難區分傳統手錶和智能手錶,因此有必要全面禁止所有手錶被帶入考場。

The Joint Council for Qualifications, representing the exam boards, said such a complete ban on watches could be in place by next summer.

代表考試委員會的英國資格認證聯合委員會(Joint Council for Qualifications)表示,對手錶的全面禁令應該在明年夏天之前出台。
