Short-sighted solution

Spotted this in New Scientist a few weeks ago, my own Vet School! Quite funny really and it’s probably how it appeared to people who didn’t know the detectors were there to stop student cheats not for excessive noise!

THANKS to Sean May for forwarding this note from the veterinary school at the University of Nottingham in the UK with its sadly short-sighted technical solution to the problem of excess noise during exams: “Vet School exams will be held between 9-11 am on the morning of Friday 16 February. We will be posting notices asking for quiet and for all mobile phones to be switched off upon entering the Vet School atrium. Please be aware that we will be operating a mobile phone detector which will sound a loud alarm if phones are left switched on.”
