Police in Burnaby are investigating allegations of cheating during an exam at Simon Fraser University last week and say they arrested one person.
In a letter to students from SFU’s registrar and vice-provost, Rummana Khan Hemani wrote: “We caught someone impersonating a student in order to write an exam in exchange for money.”
Burnaby RCMP said they were called to the university by campus security last Thursday.
Police said officers arrested a 26-year-old woman for possession of forged documents, but no charges have been laid and the woman has been released on a promise to appear.
Police did not identify the student’s name.
