I also am guilty of this when I was already in college. I was always honest in (well almost) everything but with the teasing of my friends, they got me involved to cheating. One incident I didn't like but the other was ok as I got a high grade for it but was too conscientious to repeat it. So have you ever cheated in an exam? How did you do it? Were you ever caught? How did you feel about it?

I cheated many times. I am not supposed to be proud of it but i always read and learn what i want and not waht i am supposed too. I used alot of methods but none worked better and faster then "served". You write some subjects that you think you do not know or can not learn and if one of those drops on your exam on the first occasion you take the home made papers and slide it through the other papre sheets. Exam over and high qualification as well!

everybody cheats. i think the appropriate question is have you admitted that you cheated (to a professor or to a higher authority). now, this is worth discussing..hehehe

Never. It doesn't serve any purpose if you cheat in exams or tests.

Now this is a ‘sin’ confession. LOL. We were having a history exam back then and I had forgotten a certain answer for the question. I was trying really hard to recollect the ‘flashback’ of the pages I had learned back then (some would say to recollect the photographic memories. LOL), but no help. However, coincidentally, there were three people cheating in the class, and one of them had whispered the answer (exactly the one I was looking for in my memory) pretty aloud at the back seat. And I was sitting at the back row back then. I didn’t want to cheat, but they coincidentally voiced out the answer and I suddenly remembered that yeah, that was the right answer I had been looking for. LOL. I was speaking in my mind “GOD, forgive me, I didn’t cheat but they gave the answer by themselves, I just overheard it.” LOL. And I wrote the answer down. And for the rest of the day, I was feeling guilty for writing down that one.

No, not that I know of. I know that it has come across my mind to do so though. I would personally never cheat, it is wrong.

In college, it was really hard to cheat because whenever we had exams, we are like 3 seats apart! lolz. But when I was in high school, you know... when your teacher give a short quiz or a surprise exam... heheh.. I did sometimes cheat by copying the answer of my seatmate who allows me to see her answers... We all do that in class when we were in high school. lolz!

No I never cheated in an exam, I just always believed it was wrong. What ever mark I got I got. I think it was best that way because if I aced the exam but did not learn anything then what have I really done in life, what have I really learned.

I've personally cheated in class before on tests and exams. It didn't make me feel guilty or anything, I personally didn't care as long as I got a good grade. I didn't always do it, only on certain subjects where I didn't understand as well as others. I know it was wrong, but hey, I didn't want to fail out of school.

I have never ever cheated in any of the exams, even if i get a chance, i feel so guilty to even think about it. in fact, i dont let even my friends to copy in exams...(that does not mean i complain about them to the teacher), i just advise them not to...
