Carrying on the story of the thousands of business-school students who are said to have bought questions from a rogue website run, it is now said, by a Chinese criminal gang. (Originally only one Chinese was listed but, for newspapers, the idea of ‘criminal gangs’ is far more emotive.)
Students paid Scoretop.com website $30 to access real GMAT questions that had been posted on the site by people who had recently taken the exam.
Scoretop.com was shut down last month but in London, The Times discovered at least five other sites selling GMAT questions, also known as Jungle Juice questions, or JJs, for as little as $10 each.
Anna Farrus, admissions manager at Oxford University’s Saïd Business School, said. ‘Ethics in business is fundamental and it has to begin from the admission process.’ The statement that ‘ethics in business is fundamental’ is open for challenge.
The Graduate Management Admission Council insists the advantage gained by using Scoretop or similar sites was almost inconsequential. It does seem something of a storm in a teacup especially as the single Chinese, thought to be Lei Shi who is said to come from the city of Zibo in Shandong province, has now become a criminal gang. Probably run by Fu Manchu.
