At school, during exams, do you cheat?

It is time to confide guys! So have you experience cheating on exams? What was it like and what happened afterwards? were you caught n the act of cheating. Me I do cheat but not direct to my copies in notebook as I am not fun of jotting down lessons. I sometimes cheat on my seat mate answers and it really is difficult, but I have not caught in act. I only cheat on a very rare times, but during math subjects I lend to my classmates my paper for them to copy in exchange of the favor they gave me in other subjects. My score on exams always bothers me as I don't like getting low grades, as I don't want to be out in the top 10 in our class.

i have cheated in the past though i am not in school any more. i remember one test i missed and was not to use out book or notes on and the teach sent me to the lab room to do the test. here i was doing my test minding my own biss looking through my notes and book lOL shhhh and who walks in and stands right behind me/?? the teacher. well i was in a special ed class cuase i am a very bad reader and usally in that class i would take the test in class then try it again in my special ed class with help on the reading. well the teacher told me after he graded my test that my punishment was not going to be you have to take the test again but you are stuck with the grade. I got like a 65% OMG!! A 65% and i cheated that is sicking.

Direct from notebook or books, no I have not tried that, just from classmates answer. I would just say, Hey classmate what is your answer in number 2, then that is she gives me the answer. sometimes when it is hard to communicate with my seat mate because terror teacher is on guard he/she will just told me to just look at on my answer...

I used to in high school but since I got into the best university in the country without cheating on the exams, I stopped. I guess it was proof that I can do it all by myself.

Yeah, me too, I did it also when I was still in school. In college I never cheat on exams that is because it would be embarrassing to cheat. I sometimes think that cheating on test/exam is just showing of our immaturity still to handle certain task as a student to study lesson. But as you get mature, you will know and will learn that it isn't right.

cramming always work on me, but then there are times that when your mind is too much occupied, and because of nervousness to failed because I didn't have the enough time to study, I get lost of everything.

I have never cheat on exams.Because that i am a girl who are timid.I am afriad of being found by teacher. If i want to see my seat mate's answers,i will feel atwitter,and could see anything,so i will not to cheat. I think every school must have some students who will cheat on exams.In my university cheat on exams is a very serious thing.If somebody who cheat on exams and be found by teacher,they will not have opportunity to get the scholar degree.but there will also someone cheat.I think the people who have very good cheat ability on exams are so shrewd and courage.they could do it naturally.

yes i do cheat sometimes but its rare. I tried it many time but unable to as i think its a art its not every ones cup of tea. Cheating needs a lot of confidence,quickness, and great brain...Man the people who cheat in exams are the real genius i think....

I'd rather get low grades than cheating, tbh. but it's hella amusing to watch when my classmates cheat. haha & to those who cheat, remember: if you got caught, just tell them that at the bottom of the papers, it said "lihat sebelah" ;)

A friend of mine and I were planning to "get a few answers" off of a girl in our sci class. So my buddy sitting next to me copied her entire test, 100 multiple choice. I asked him for _ through _ every here and then. He got caught cheating, I got away scott free. The first offense was a slap on the wrist and probation, but one more time is expellation and a blacklist to other universities!

well,I never cheat during exams.beacause I always work hard to prepare for my exams. And if I find difficult on exam, I would tell myself that other student can't do what I can't do ...haha. In another way, I think if you cheat on exams, you may also cheat to your friends...that's terrible

I confess, I have cheated before and I have been caught once. I felt so guilty lol. The last time I cheated was in grade 10 though on an exam that I didnt know we were going to have... something like that... So I just made it through but with great difficulty and lots of cheating :D =)

I never tried not to cheat but on the same I had not always cheated in exam. I remembered, its hardly two or three occasions when I cheated and that too only a glimpse, not full copy. On the other hand I have helped many people during exams ;-)

If necessary, yes. I usually never get terrible grades and I usually never study either. I do most of the test answers on my own though and only cheat if it's easy to see another [smart] person's paper. Unfortunately, on finals I can't because usually the person sitting next to me has a different exam letter/number. :C

When I was in first year of college, questions in a sociology exam were leaked. I was one of the many who benefited from the leak. We weren't caught. I wouldn't do such a thing on my own. I just happened to be at a particular place at a particular time. I never cheated again after that because I am a fan of learning. I believe that when you cheat, the most important person you cheat is yourself. The most important thing you compromise is your future. The most important thing you destroy is your confidence.

Never :) I tried once during primary school, but I was caught... Since then, I've never tried... Sometimes it was hard, especially during the university, but I can sleep better at night I think... :)
