Students Of TOEFL, IELTS Taken For A Ride In Hyderabad

Cashing in on the foreign education dreams of students from the city, gangs are now targeting those preparing for International English Language Testing System (IELTS) and Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) examinations. at least 40 students approached the city police after they were cheated by such gangs. They had collected money from the students after promising them the ‘key’ paper for the exams. However, they hid the fact that the keys could be changed in the last minute, and that the keys sold to the students, at Rs 1.5 lakh each, were not the final ones.  Central Zone Task Force recently nabbed an engineering graduate who was cheating students in similar fashion. He was procuring the key paper from sources in North India and selling them to students here for Rs 1.5 lakh each. TOEFL and IELTS are standardised tests to measure the English language ability of non-native speakers wishing to enrol in English-speaking universities abroad. These are the two most widely accepted English-language tests across the globe. they lose their money when the keys are changed in the last minute and they fail to clear the exams. The gangs offer to help them in the next chance, and there have been instances of students who thus managed to clear the tests, We suspect these fraudsters have links with the institutions or their staff or with the printing presses. If no insider is involved, it is not that easy to get the keys, adding that students should desist from trying for success through such illegal ways or fall prey to such fraudsters.
