A female college student in Beijing got so nervous after she was accused of cheating that she tried to commit suicide to prove that she was innocent, the Beijing Times reported.
Soon after the exam began in the Biochemical Engineering College of Beijing Union University, a monitor found that she looked at one of her hands, on which she wrote down words and formulas.
To her surprise, the student suddenly jumped out of the fourth-floor window near her seat, and suffered broken bones.
Her school is offering psychological intervention for her rehabilitation and they cleared the school monitor of any liability in the incident.
