This is how not to cheat in the exams…

Passing professional exams is a tough exercise. You’ll only pass them if you work hard and put in the hours of studying that are required.

Occasionally people will no doubt try to cheat and maybe try to grab a quick glance over at the person next to them to see what they are writing. The advice is simple. Don’t do it and instead focus on preparing properly in the first place.

Ok, speech over with and now let’s look at the husband of Finland’s president who if I’m honest would be rubbish at trying to sneak a look at the answers of the person next to him.

Mr Arajarv is married to the President of Finland and together with his wife was recently attending an official function where he was sat next to Princess Mary of Denmark.

Now frisky Mr Arajarv didn’t try to have a sneaky look at Princess Mary’s exam paper. No, he tried to look at something more… how can I say it… but more personal.

Alas for Mr Arajarv his attempts to grab a quick look at Princess Mary’s “exam scripts” were spotted by the Princess and his attempts to look innocently at the ceiling afterwards are hilarious or pathetic depending on your point of view.

Unfortunately for Mr Arajarv (but fortunately for all of us) his performance was caught on TV and can be seen below.
