Man receives fine for impersonating his girlfriend to take exam in her place


20-year-old Ayan Zhademov of Kazakhstan wanted to help his 17-year-old girlfriend who was concerned that she would not do well on an upcoming exam. So he put on a wig, applied makeup, wore a skirt and blouse, and took the test for her. He might have gotten away with it, had he not opened his mouth.

Zhademov's cover was finally blown when 'he tried speaking in a high voice, but it was obvious that he was a male'.

A spokesman for the exam board said: 'We suspected it might be another woman that had taken the candidate's place, but we never suspected it was a man that had taken her place. At least not until he started speaking.
