She didn't look a day over forty;
A Parisian mother has taken helicopter parenting to a preposterous extreme. The 52-year-old woman was so desperate for her daughter to score high marks on the Bacchalauréat, France’s equivalent of the SAT, that she disguised herself as a high school student and attempted to take the English portion of the exam for her.
The woman, who is referred to as Caroline D in news reports, caked her face with makeup and donned Converse tennis shoes and low-waist jeans to trick exam supervisors into thinking she was her 19-year-old daughter, Laetitia, according to the British Telegraph.
....but a savvy supervisor recalled a much younger looking woman taking a philosophy exam under the same name a few days earlier.
Exam officials decided to let the mother finish the exam to avoid disrupting students and four police officers reportedly intercepted the cheating mom as she walked out the door.
