As far as i remember i cheated in social studies paper in 5th class, i wrote all important dates in single paper, and used it in socks. After this when i became mature, i never used it again. Have you ever copied/cheated in exams?

Never. No need to cheat - if you learn hard and know the material, why cheat? People usually rationalize their cheating. They say "This teacher upsets me", "I just need to pass this test" or "this isn't fair - there's so much stuff to learn" etc. But what does it say about the person? Would you cheat after that, when you are at work because your boss makes you upset? Would you cheat in other fields "because it is easier"? or because "life isn't fair"? Eventually cheating hurts other people... so make sure you think about them when cheating (oh, you can cheat in computer games - that's ok:))

I would be cheating if I say I had never cheated during any exams while I was studying. Yes, I admit that I had done my own share of cheating. But I had done it with my best friend and it was only the small quizzes or monthly tests. We didn't cheat for the whole exam paper. Only when we couldn't figure out an answer and we need clarification whether it is the correct or not, we tend to ask each other and compare our answers. It was like a competition among us, and we are among the best students in the college. During the big exams, we did all of the papers on our own and we didn't cheat at all. I was too scared to cheat and furthermore it was the most serious exam papers in my whole life, how come I want to gamble it by cheating? Lucky for me, I passed with flying colors and succeeded to further my studies until I get a Bachelor Degree now, all with my own true effort and not by cheating. That thing was in the past and will never repeat in my life.
