hi ... i'm just telling you this guys becuase i don' like to study my subjects... when the exams come, i do not study before or we say a day before or 2 days before the exam because when i do it, my memory does' work anymore or shall we say, i can't remember those things tha i put in my mind or what i have studied... we can say that cheating is bad, but then, that attitude may sometimes help me.. i didn't say that i am cheating becuase for me, cheating are thos atittudes that a person brings a cheat on the day of he exam.. i may cheat but not in that way, i'm just asking questions to my nieghbors.. ehehe..although, it is a bad habit.

Cheating NEVER helps anyone!!! When you cheat, you really do nothing but hurt yourself and bring down your character and knowledge base. We are tested in many ways and to truly grow into the person that we are meant to become, we should give our all to each test/activity. Cheating is a cop-out and a loop hole for those who don't want to work and pull their own weight.

Its not good to cheat, because that not good for the future. Try studying or finding a type of studying that suits you. Flashcards, notes, or something else not sure how you learn. I try writing it down somewhere I look at alot and sooner or later it will be stuck in my mind. Cheatings not good for anything, can ruin you if you get caught.

how do u ask ur neighbour and not get caught? I think studying for your exams is less stressful than finding ways to get answers during the test. And knowing your subjects helps you in your future studies and develope a habit of studying well for any exams. My advise would be to start studying a week before the exam so you don't get stressed out as the time nears. Plan the number of chapters a day you can manage to memorise and try to fit the chapters you're required to know into 7 days. Doing it this way really helps. Gd luck in your studies :)

It is a bad habit but it really depends on how you use it. Most of us dont have a great memory to load information that we may need in the exams. When I was in college I often share my answers to my classmates and vice versa and after a while we never notice that we are already helping each other reach the goal of passing our exam. So when you cheat. . . make sure you have answers to share too.. so cheating will turn-out to be a great help!

i do not think it is a bad habit because asking question is good for your knowledge but study before exam because you always not get chance to ask others

i would like too but there are times that i can't study before exams because my head is aching or i get dizzy... that's why, when exams, if i had a chance to ask what's the answer on my seatmate, i do it...just to passed the exams rather than to get failed eventhough it a bad attitude..

Honesty is important all over the world, not only between friends, lovers, but also in everything include simple exam. You should correct this bad habit,or you'll lose a lot of your best friends.

Ok you know you have a problem. I would encourage you to stop cheat because you will become addictive and this cannot help you when you want to further your studies. Look at your weaker subjects and then study those first. Before start doing all this follow these steps: Step 1 - tell yourself that you love to study. Remember what you feed into your brain that is what it will think. So repeat I pokemonski love to study. Step 2 - look at the subject you have difficulties with. What you don't understand ask the teacher to repeat for you OR stick to the person who always ace in this subject Step 3 - Always pray before you start to study. Ask God/whomever you pray to To open your mind that you will remember what you have study. Mathematics and subjects such as this need practice so you practice them. All the best. Kerry

It is not at all ethical to cheat in exams, but we do it. Many are though very honest, but there are again many who prefers to cheat for some extra marks. What happened always in my case is that, I didn't study throughout the year, and at the end, I studied the whole syllabus just 1 week prior to exams, and that too in only 5-6 days. Thus it was never possible for me to keep in mind all the details, and I had to do a little cheating. But I do that regret much about that, as because most school kids do a a little bit of it.

asking question is never wrong, but if you do it to get the answer of your seat mate during the exam of course it is not right. cheating is bad, it will never help you, although it seems that your seat mate can save your test paper by copying his answers it's still not the solution to your problem. he may save you on one subject but how about the others and how about the succeeding exams you will take, do you mean you will cheat again. besides granted that you pass through cheating or copying what will happen to you when you graduate and find a job, how can cheat during a job interview and how can you copy in the job site.?

I have cheated in one exam in my high school. And I felt ashamed though I got a good mark. Since then, I never cheat in exam no matter how difficult it is. Further in life, cheating is not a good habit.

as far as the short term goals are concerned just like exams..you will always.. find it as a great help..but when when you proceed further in life,when you will need a thorough knowledge of the subjects which are needed to be implemented there, you'll face a lot of problem then..so,the best thing is try your best to understand the things,ask teachers or elders whenever necessary, memorize the things if you can,even sometimes i've a problem of memorizing the things properly but now i've started mugging up the things by jotting the things down atleast twice..that will be of great help..best of luck for your further studies...

If you cheat in the examination hall ,don't think that you cheated your staffs by getting some pass marks in that particular subject .bcoz if you always cheat in the examination hall then finally you will be the looser .There is an proverb "zero is better than copy "so try to understand this my friend .All cheaters will be caught one day .so try to think positively ,now you feel happy by cheating in the exam ,but this happiness is temporary .so quit this bad habit .All the best for your exam.

It is a bad habit that should not be ignored. The fact that you are aware that "cramming" on studying does not help, you should have a well-focused mind to absorb everything when the professor is discussing or have at least a "reading habit". People have different ways of learning and it is up to them to really figure out the best way for them to absorb which techniques best applies for them in every situation. Going back to cheating, when a person tends to resort to this practice, it becomes part of his or her system of solving even the simplest problem in life. Then, this will embody one's character. However, if one cheats and was able to learn from the situation and do away with the habit; then it is fine. Cheating is also viewed as part of a "strategy" in one's survival of a situation but one must be able to weigh the result...

Yes cramming for an exam is a bad habit that need to be stopped. You will when you realize that the only person you are hurting is yourself. There is a difference between memorizing the subject matter as opposed to actually learning the subject matter. When you learn the subject, you retain it much longer if not for life.

Well it may help you pass the subject but in reality it does not help you at all since all you've answered in your test papers are just borrowed knowledge from your neighbors. In the end what have you learned is not really learning. I guess if you just study hard and learn to love studying not at the time of your exam because that would not really stick in your memory no matter how hard you studied it. But rather learn while exams are far away. Practice your exercises and assignments and somehow that will kind of stick to you more than just trying to ask seatmates at the time of the exams.

It's good that you know it's a bad habit.......then why do it? Of course it is. Cheating may help you a little but it does more harm than good. You see, you may passed the exam because you successfully cheated but what about in the near future? when you apply or have a job? Do you think you are capable enough to handle responsibility and have enough knowledge on your field? Do you think you have the stored knowledge to do your job? Cheating is an art (as they say).....but be careful you won't be caught.

I'm not a fan of cheating.I try to be honest when i write my papers.Cheating helps a person pass but it is not good for his future.IN my examination center people use to give money to the examiners to copy.We have to just watch corruption go on quietly.

Well, you are the only person in this world who cheats during the exam.. Of course, there are also some students who also cheats in the exam.. I admit that when I was still studying I also cheat during the exam especially if I have no ideas about the exam or I was absent last meeting.. At the same time, I'm giving my answers to my classmates when they asked for it for as long as I'm so sure about my answers.. I always told them that they should not get mad at me if ever my answer is wrong.. It was really a worst experienced for me when I cheat because after the exam I felt guilt to my own self and that gives me a lesson to strive hard so that on the next exam I won't be able to cheat again... In your experiences, I don't think so that its a bad habit asking questions to your neighbor since people said that its better to ask question for you to have more informations and for you to learn the things that you don't actually know.. I think that a good strategy for you to know and gather informations.. But of course asking questions during the exam, it is not allowed no matter how good it is since for the teachers asking questions during the exam is already part of cheating.. Teachers always said that if students have a question, they should asked it to the teacher and not to their classmates or seatmates because teacher knows more than the students but what if the questions you were asking is the question given in the exam, of course 100% sure that our teacher won't answer us not like with our seatmate or classmate, right?? So, for me its so stupid when teachers always say that students must always asked questions to the teacher and not to the classmates or seatmate but we all know that they won't give a good or correct answer.. I just remembered again my experiences when I'm still a student.. I just miss being a student again..
