Russia amused by Penza student who copied study paper in incorrect website encoding by hand
Penza, 20 April 2016. PenzaNews. The federal media took another jab at the issues in the modern education system by highlighting the case of a Penza student who copied her research paper by hand from a website displayed in an incorrect webpage encoding and submitted it to the teacher without giving any thought over the unusual symbols she had to copy.

The curious incident had been disseminated online by Yulia Artamonova, associate professor of Economics and Production Managemtn at the Penza State University of Architecture and Construction, who published the photo in her Facebook.
“Perhaps something went wrong when she was copying it,” the university teacher commented on the photo.
After the incident was reported by such federal media sources as Dozhd and Life.ru, and such websites as Yod, Informing and Meduza, Yulia Artamonova deleted the photo and the comments.
However, she told the Russian media that she gave the student in question a C as the copied paper was only a part of a bigger work that was overall completed on a satisfactory level.
