A 22-year old medical student has been arrested for attempting to sit his sister’s junior college science paper. Dasart Suresh put on a wig and traditional dress to pass himself off as his younger sister, claiming he got the idea ’from a movie’. He managed to enter the examination hall and take the first part of the test before a supervisor noticed that his face did not match the photograph on his sister’s admission ticket; he had a beard, 12-year old Ravathi did not. Dasart now faces charges of forgery and impersonation.

For Cherwell, maintaining editorial independence is vital. We are run entirely by and for students. To ensure independence, we receive no funding from the University and are reliant on obtaining other income, such as advertisements. Due to the current global situation, such sources are being limited significantly and we anticipate a tough time ahead – for us and fellow student journalists across the country.

So, if you can, please consider donating. We really appreciate any support you’re able to provide; it’ll all go towards helping with our running costs. Even if you can't support us monetarily, please consider sharing articles with friends, families, colleagues - it all helps!

Thank you!
