An online search in Chinese of "hackers editing scores" results in 
dozens of pages of hits. The hackers say they can change students' 
scores for a price - and charge between a few thousand yuan and more 
than 10,000 yuan for the illegal service, depending on the majors and 
universities involved.

A person answering the phone at one such site, who refused to reveal his 
name, told METRO he had helped several students. The slogan of his 
website was: "If you did badly in an examination, come to our hacker

When asked whether he could change the score for a failed subject at the
