India issues dress code for exams

Authorities in India have issued a dress code for candidates who are retaking a medical school exam.
Last month, the Supreme Court ordered more than 600,000 students to retake the exam after they found that the question paper had been leaked.
Candidates have been told to wear light clothes with half-sleeves, and shirts that do not have big buttons.
They cannot wear earrings and carry calculators, pens, handbags and wallets.
Shoes have also been discarded in favour of open slippers.
In India students cheating in exams have been often found concealing Bluetooth devices and mobile SIM cards that have been stitched to their shirts.
Over the past few years, a number of candidates have also been caught using small earphones, stitched button-hole cameras and micro earplugs.
