"California officials have invalidated more than 1,000 pharmacists’ test scores because of cheating on a state exam"
On Wednesday, the California State Board of Pharmacy said it had determined that more than 100 questions from the state licensing exam had been leaked online. Anyone who had taken the exam since July will have to retake it — a decision that affects approximately 1,400 people, board spokesman Bob Davila said.
“We are fully aware of how destructive it’s been for them, but we’re a consumer protection agency,” Davila said. “We want to make sure that anyone who does get a license in California is in fact competent to take care of California patients.”
Angered by the decision, pharmacists are contacting their legislators, threatening lawsuits, signing petitions and planning protests, hoping the board will reverse its decision and release the exam scores.
