Schools try hard to stop cheating in exams. A college in the Philippines has a low-tech way to get students looking at only their test. Students must wear anti-cheating hats. The students cannot look at other students' papers. They can focus only on their test. Students are happy because they get to make their own hat.

Photos of the hats have gone viral on social media. There are many designs, using cardboard boxes, egg cartons, coat hangers and other things. A professor said the hats kept students focused. She was proud of her students because the exams were stressful. Many students finished the tests early. No one was caught cheating.
