There are many different ways to cheat on an exam, but a 20-year-old Kazakhstan man took it to a whole new level when he went above and beyond the call of duty as a boyfriend and dressed up as his girlfriend to take her end-of-year exam for her. This all sounds like a wacky scheme that Zack Morris would come up with on Saved By the Bell.
Safe to say he probably looked this ridiculous.
Ayan Zhademov’s girlfriend was too nervous to take her Unified National Testing exam, an exam required before entering college. So what did he do? He did what any man would do. He came to the rescue and said he would don a wig, heels, skirt, and blouse and take the exam for her – as her. And they say chivalry is dead. All was going well until he actually went to the testing site and officials started questioning him. Apparently, he did a good enough styling and makeup job to make officials believe he was female, but it was his voice that got him busted.
A spokesperson from 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. He tried speaking in a high voice but it was obvious that he was a male.”
Here’s a tip: if you are going to dress like your girlfriend and take a test for her, fully commit! This includes altering your voice to sound like a female. If Screech could do it for one of Zack’s hair-brained schemes, then anyone can do it.
In the end, Ayan was fined. Oddly enough, a local business man appreciated his valiant effort and the romance of it all so he decided to pay half of Ayan’s fine. It’s nice to see that some people are willing to award such overtures of chivalry.
As for his girlfriend, she’ll have to wait to take the exam next year. This gives Ayan more than enough time to improve his styling skills and perfect his 17-year-old girl voice.
