A university was forced to remove anti-cheating posters from exam rooms after it emerged they contained mathematical formulae that could be used by students.

Plymouth University didn’t realise they had made the error until a pupil uploaded the posters to Reddit on Thursday.

‘Just took a maths final with this on the wall of the exam room. It has formulas [sic] on that were needed in the exam,’ wrote hazzaap123.

‘The poster got me an extra 10 per cent on the paper.’

The university defended itself by saying the posters, which featured a hand with formulae written on it, were placed where the writing was not clearly visible to students.

They have since removed the prints.
