Well, some peoples while writing exams use to copy seeing other papers and malpractice. When I was a student, even though if I try to copy, our examiner will not allow to do so. Our teachers were strict in that regard. No matter how difficult the examination is. But they are so strict. One of my friend, tried to copy in a exam and he was suspended by the examiner for about 2 weeks. Even though some tried, they never got a chance to copy. How about you guys?

yes!yes!yes! I used to copy just for thrill it gave & I could be a hero behind the instructor. Then one day when i was preparig a chit for copying i got caught by my mother. after the Initial explosion from her side, she eplained that if I wrote the same chit once more i will master the subject. I have stopped copying since that that. Life did a fine balancing act with me when i became a instructor much later in my life. Now I have spent many many hours invigilating & making sure students don't copy. Since i was a master at this art, i know all tricks that students will use.(ha, ha ha)

Yes. I can admit this fact now because I'm not a student anymore and my parents will not mind this. I remember I copied in a history exam. It's bored and I didn't like to recite the content. I was discovered and scared though the examiner did not disclose me. I felt shameful and never copy from then on.

Back in my hometown, many of my friends had lots of tricks to cheat during tests/exams. Because only a few younger teachers were alert enough to catch them in action, this has become an unpopular habit for many students. I must admit, during my 1 year in secondary school in my hometown, i learnt quite a lot too. Many helped each other during exams,in the name of solidarity. But when i moved to my current place, to my surprise, students are busy with themselves. It's a good thing, because cheating is less prevalent, but also bad because as students we r more concerned with ourselves. So, it really depends on the environment where one is studying. This is just from my own experience. :-)

frankly I have copied first and last time in my post graduation examination and paper was so tuff that nobody are able to solve it and one intersting thing in my class only two person was having knowledge of that subject so our teacher were also allowed to copy of them but only for passing marks and most of us had copied the answers so that we can get pass and finally we had passed that exam, cheeers :-)

I work hard for my grades and I think that everyone else should, too. I don't copy, and if I notice anyone attempting to copy from me I give them at the very least a dirty look, although generally I'll mention it to an instructor. If they don't have the time to study, or refuse to study, then they don't deserve -my- grade.
