At Belgium’s Thomas More College in Antwerp, teachers are allegedly using DJI Phantom drones equipped with GoPro cameras to catch students trying to cheat on exams.
These men are candidates in the state of Bahir for the Indian Army. They were forced to strip down to their underpants before taking the entrance exam. The proctors hoped that this requirement would ensure that no one could cheat by bringing in secret notes or electronic devices.
After getting naked, the 1,159 candidates were seated about 8 feet apart from each other. Uniformed soldiers patrolled the testing area while the candidates took the 1-hour exam. (Source)
