A Kazakhstani high school student has been thrown out of school for bringing a 35-foot long cheat sheet into a university admission test.

His constant fidgeting and readjusting before the test caught the teacher’s attention and gave him away.

The student reportedly had 25,000 potential answers written on a very long series of computer printouts and then wrapped around his body.  The answers covered each topic of the Kazakhstani university entrance exam from Russian and Kazakh to math and history.

An education official admired the effort, but simply could not reward it saying, “It’s a pity to see all that work come to nothing but he cheated, and that’s not allowed.”
