French mum fails age exam

52-year-old French woman faces prosecution after being caught trying to sit a baccalaureate English exam in place of her daughter.



Paris: A 52-year-old French woman faces prosecution after being caught trying to sit a baccalaureate English exam in place of her daughter.
Kitted out in typical teenage attire including Converse trainers and low-waisted skinny jeans, the woman made it into the exam hall at a Paris high-school yesterday.

But despite the disguise, an exam supervisor who had overseen the 19-year-old daughter when she sat her philosophy paper earlier in the week soon realised she was an imposter and alerted the principal.

Police were called and the woman now faces fraud charges. The consequences for her daughter could be more serious as she could be banned from taking public exams for five years.

Introduced by Napoleon in 1808, the multi-subject baccalaureate is the main school-leaving exam in France and has to be passed by students wishing to go to university.
