PARIS, June 26 (UPI) -- Authorities in France said a woman who donned "elaborate makeup" to pose as her 19-year-old daughter for an exam could face prison.

A representative for the Lycee Bossuet-Notre Dame school in Paris said the 52-year-old woman, whose name was released only as Caroline D, donned low-wasted jeans, Converse shoes and "elaborate makeup" to pose as her daughter, Laetitia, during the three-hour Bacchalaureat composition exam, The Daily Telegraph, Britain, reported Wednesday.

That takes Chutzpah! How in the world did she think she would not get caught? I bet she did not do well on the exam either. Too dumb!

I have yet to meet anyone even close to her age that could pass for a 19 yr. old. I think what she did was very wrong, but prison???

Wow! That woman was delusional. But I kind of feel sorry for her daughter. What must her friends think of this?

The main issue here is that cheating at an exam in France means big punishment for the cheater - here, the daughter who was supposed to take the exam. Because of that silly idea they had she not only won't be able to graduate high school this year, but she won't be allowed to take any exams for years, including her driving license (which can't be taken before age 18 in France). That means no college next year, no car, probably no job either... For years.

I've known women who were often mistaken for 19-year-olds even in their late 40's. These are women who are baby-faced and/or petite with underdeveloped bodies that look pre-teen. They don't wear make-up. I don't know how makeup would help someone look younger; usually it makes you look older. Looking that young can be quite an obstacle both professionally and socially. These women have rarely been able to date, because they're only approached by teens and college students.
