A Chem 2A student was referred to SJA due to an ad she posted on Facebook. The ad sought someone smart to take the student’s test in her place.

The student also asserted that she had in fact taken the exam herself, and could prove this. She was found innocent of academic misconduct and the charges against her were dropped. However, the student agreed not to do anything similar again.
