You were having the prelim exams and you saw your friend bring out a sheet of paper where she wrote down some formulas. She looked at you and even winked at you. What would be your reaction? How would you resolve the issue?

to be honest, i would do nothing. well, i'd probably shake my head in disappointment, but i won't tell the proctor or the instructor about such event. everybody cheats, this is a fact. if your friend gets caught, that is her/his fault. you already gave a sign of warning. it is her/his choice if she/he continues to cheat. i myself have written a few formulas back in my college days, fortunately, i am 'skilled' enough not to get caught.

I never ever cheated in school whether primary, highschool or college. A lot of people I know never cheated too. In fact even if the teacher left, we didn't cheat because we believe that we're only fooling ourselves if we did, so we learned to study hard instead. Thanks for commenting and all the best.

I'd shake my head at her to show i was displeased, and if she still cheated, thats her choice. I wont tell on her- whats the point? Plus it'd end up being a 1-vs-1 argument and id fall out with her.

I don't like cheaters.....or liars...or anyone that has to use deception to try to get ahead. I probably would ask her if that's to her best benefit....I probably would't like rat on her because in the end she is the one that will suffer if she doesn't really know the material.
