Counting Essay Mills Targetting Students in the UAE - 2022
This study highlights the urgent need to address the growing threat of contract cheating in higher education. Contract cheating sites, which have surged during emergency distance learning, pose a significant risk to academic integrity. The issue was underscored by a 2015 scandal in Australia, leading to the criminalization of such services. These sites exploit students, often blackmailing them post-service delivery. The extent of this problem in the UAE is unclear, prompting the study to employ a Boolean search technique to identify and analyze relevant websites. Out of 34 sites, 29 exhibited a high probability of appearing across different platforms, indicating their aggressive and harmful nature. The study proposes a nationwide ban on assignment-writing services as a top-down strategy to safeguard education quality and integrity in the UAE.
