Hundreds of students may be implicated in a cheating scandal over an answer key obtained by some in advance of a senior-level course in business,at the University of Central Florida. The professor in the course told his class that he was left "physically ill" and "absolutely disgusted" by the incident.

Close to 600 students will have to retake a midterm.

If students admit that they cheated the first time around, they must follow the university's ethics policy and take a 4 hour course on ethics

Students found not to have cheated will be allowed to take the higher of the two exam scores.

In other words If you get another 100% guess they know you know the material!!

Do you think the university should have used their established academic dishonesty procedures on the cheaters?
