Manchester Evening News: Professor in exam scandal quits

THE professor at the centre of an exam marking scandal has quit after being found guilty of gross misconduct.

Annmarie Surprenant was a top lecturer at Manchester University and a world-leading expert in researching new drugs.

But she resigned from her job, which commanded a six-figure salary, after an internal inquiry looked at accusations she had faked the signatures of colleagues.
