Do you cheat in the exams?

I don't cheat in the exams even if it's just an ordinary quiz or a final exam. In the school were I came from, cheating is just a normal thing to do because usually, the professor go out of the classroom during exams. And every time that I saw my classmates cheat and they pass a certain exam because of that, I can't help but to pity them. Yeah. I can see them smile because of that. But I know that within their heart, they are guilty. And I don't want that guilt feeling. For me, I'd rather failed a certain exam of subject than to passed because of cheating

I do not cheat in the exams but happened to allow friends to cheat on the exams during college. I think cheating is bad because if you allow person to cheat, they will not develop the habit of studying for the exams and they will keep on depending on someone to pass their exams. Well I guess, I was just too kind to allow my friends to cheat by copying some answers from me.

Did you know cheating gives you an extra skills? I've done cheating on my school days and never regret it. It even help me balance my self in this imbalance world. Everything is not equal and cheating make me feel equal to others or much good if you bypass them. If you feel guilty when you cheat, it make you feel worst when you get out to school and meet the real world.

I don't cheat and I can't cheat even if I wanted to. ..just can't. One of my last exam, I had my notes with me but I couldn't look at it even when I needed a few words. I just couldn't. I lost atleast 10 marks on that....and could have just glanced at it and done it...but I didn't.

I never cheated in tests and exams and I never will do that. It makes no sense. In the end I will only be guilty for what I have done because I dont deserve even a congratulations for the pass mark if I have cheated. I agree with you. I rather fail the exam instead of cheating to pass.

Cant say i havent cheated before but only because the teacher didn't prepare us well enough for the test or i just didn't have time to study. I find alot of tests in school are ridiculous so i don't really care.

No one is perfect, as long as it can survive me I'll do it, but first of all, I do my part, as a student way before, I am a geek. I study hard, study first before pleasure. But sometimes due to cramming, I get mental blocked so what I did to survive is to ask some question to my close pal in the room, but not all only the things that I don't know and don't remember. Everyone is guilty of it, if you admit it you can be free LOL. I hope you continue to not cheat.

I would not cheat on exams, final exams or even an ordinary quiz. My reasoning for that is no matter what when you take the test you know yourself if you know the stuff. Isn't that why your going is to learn something to help your future? Cheating is to me, cheating yourself. Your not cheating the system or the teacher or even your classmates. When it comes right down to it, your cheating yourself. If you cheat you will never know if you truly learned what you wanted to learn in the first place.

Yes, i did. It started when i am in high school, 4th year. The subject was values education. I didnt know we have an exam and i am not so prepared so i open my notes. The funny part was my teacher didnt mind, i think she knows its my first time hehehe. i did that again when im in college, accounting 5 i think, i am already working at the same time, studying at night. Sometimes its hard for me to concentrate in teacher's discussion when i am so sleepy in the class. So i did cheat. happy mylotting and smile always!

Yes, i do but only in Math. lol! It's something i really can't pass without cheating. lol! I know it's not right but i guess i have no choice. I'm really weak in mathematic and i don't want to repeat it because it's not practical. Tuition fee is getting high. Well that happened years ago by the way when i was still in college. lol! If there's no math, there's no need to me to cheat since i find other subjects easy.

I admit I have cheated before, usually trying to see someone else's answers. but I learned my lesson when a teached passed out different exams and so of course all my answers were wrong. I was young and learned my lesson early

I don't cheat on exams because when it comes to some point were i really need to use the information, i wont be able to use it. Its also really hard to get into jobs that you need to know the information for because if you don't know it then you will mostly get fired because you will have no clue what is going on.

yes, you are absolutely right, some people don't realize that they are causing harm to themselves by cheating in exams. Its a very bad thing. Whats the use of degree or a certificate if you don't have the knowledge that is required to go ahead in life.

This question..hmm. sensitive, elementary school spelling exams counted? well, i have classmates around me in school who cheat, and the worse thing is they are proud of it rather than being ashamed of themselves. For instance, they write on their calculators and bring it into the exam hall, and when they come out, they complain that they should have written daadaayada on their calculators instead of yadayada...how thick-skinned can these people get. The consequences of getting found out is serious, yet these considerations are shoved aside. At the end of the day, actually you won't be proud of the results you are getting, because it's not reflective of your true abilities isn't it? if you had worked hard and attained good results, the sense of satisfaction is much greater. These people will continue to do so in whatever they do because their integrity is questionable, and probably will learn their lesson the hard way i guess.

It is hard to do so in an exam. You should pay much attention to the teachers response. It disturb my mind when I answer the questions. I don't know how other guys do during an exam. I can not do it. I'd rather depend on my own ability to solve the problems I face.

I was so nervous cheating when I was in school, especially way back in college because of my reputation. I was the president of the course and so therefore, most of the students look up to me with great respect and admiration. So with it, I think I will not just waste the struggles and hardships that I had just by making myself superior from others when it comes to major examinations or just in a simple quizzes. And besides, I was always the proctor during examinations, I was always exempted taking from it....lol.

When I was a student,I never cheated in an exam whether the teacher was in the examination room or not.I regard exams as an chance to check up the knowledge I have learned,and cheat in exams can cheat no one except ourselves.But this is not the case at all after working in a state owned company.In the company,we are usually requested to take an exam suddenly, and there is little time left to prepare for it,so cheat is only way we can pass the exam.
