Fifty-eight Thai college students have been arrested for allegedly cheating during an exam by hiding pagers in their underwear.

Police say the pagers were set to vibrate with answers to multiple-choice questions. One vibration meant the first choice was correct, two vibrations meant the second choice, and so on. Four teachers have also been arrested and accused of helping the 35 female and 23 male students.

The arrests were made at Ramkhamheang University in Bangkok, where undergraduate students were taking a final English exam for a bachelors degree.
