It was revealed yesterday that seven applicants involved in the police entrance exam cheating scandal at Provincial Police Region 1 have had their results cancelled.
National police deputy chief Pol General Dechnarong Suticharnbancha presided over a meeting yesterday at Royal Thai Police headquarters of the team set up to investigate cheating in entrance exams at the Metropolitan Police Bureau (MPB) and Provincial Police Regions 1 and 7.
The results from Provincial Police Regions 1 and 7 were announced yesterday, while the MPB’s results will be out on Monday.
Dechnarong said Provincial Police Region 1, which found six people who were allegedly hired to take the test and show answers to applicants, disqualified seven applicants due to suspicions. They have yet to be charged but face further investigation.
Officials at Provincial Police Region 7 announced that 339 people passed the written exam, but had not disqualified anyone, he said. To prevent a reoccurrence, a panel led by national police chief’s assistant Pol Lt General Phromthorn Pak-at would study how to prevent exam cheating, he said.
