This year’s gaokao, China’s annual college entrance examination, is drawing near. For the first time in history, cheating on the examination is now an actual crime.
Cheaters can be sentenced to up to seven years in jail. In south China’s Guangzhou city, in addition to passing through a metal detector, students also have to scan their fingerprints to get into examination rooms.
This year the gaokao will use a nationally unified exam paper, which means that strict secrecy is essential. Every process leading up to this year’s test, including transportation, distribution and retrieval, will be monitored; transportation will even be supervised and controlled by GPS systems. After the examination starts, proctors will do an extra check of students’ identities.

Will the proctors also remove all electronic devices including smart watches and glasses?
Will students bags be x-rayed to ensure there is no possibility of cheating devices being brought in?
Will they supply pens to ensure the candidates don't try to smuggle in cheat-sheets in their pens?

Ideally students should be examined in locations that they are not familiar with and have all meals, water, pens, required equipment supplied to reduce the possibility of ANY cheating.

Cheating should result in immediate removal from the examination hall and no remittance.
Strategically placed cameras should catch proof of cheating.

Just curious as to how the prison sentence length of 7 years came about... as opposed to one year, two years or even three years.  Cheating is a serious problem and should be dealt with harshly.  Glad to see some thoughtful measures are being taken.  BlondeAmber has some good points.

Ensure a justice examination is of great importance. In recent years, chating in the exams, especially in the College Entrance Examination, is widespread. There are more and more victims suffered a lot from it. They lost their right to have a fair competition. Moreover, if the cheater donot be found out, they would steal other's opportunities to enter a good university. So it is a breakthrough progress that cheating in the exams will be punished by laws. Severe criminal punishment will beneficial to improve this bad behavior.
