Every student will have this type of situations in there life. I know I cheated a great number of times but I know I learn a lot even when I cheat? So do you cheat?

sometimes cheating is just a form of survival mode. You need to do anything to pass.

I rather fail than cheat. I feel great when I passed an exam by studying only and not relying on cheating.

No I never cheat. I would rather fail but still have a clear conscience, rather than getting through by cheating and feeling bad about it for the rest of my life. As for learning through cheating, you only learn how to take the easy way. But in real life there isn't always a shortcut to everything you encounter, and if you only know how to take shortcuts instead of working your way through with your own ability then you'll likely find trouble coming your way. Not only that, the more you try to take shortcuts to get around your problems, the trouble you'll dig up. So it's better to do things with integrity and with your own ability.

Dear students,sorry for being so contravesial and hurting your honesty...exams are meant to fetch you marks to prove your competence on paper,certificates for a lifetime. Knowledge can be built up throughout your life,better secure your marks even by cheating when necessary

Most of the time I would rather fail than cheat. I don't cheat on most subjects that I think is important for my career. The only subjects that I cheated was the minor subjects. Subjects like Chinese and Social studies.

I would rather fail, though I must admit that it is hard for me to accept failure. But I know it will be harder for me to accept failure in such a test of character and integrity. This would only likely put me in a lot of catastrophic instances in the future, especially when it becomes a habit. I suppose I'm also concerned about the others who did not cheat and would rather fail, too. A shame. But then, what if everyone else around me cheated. Would it be different? This is a very hard scenario, but I'd like to believe I would stay firm. Because I want to really know where I stand, I want to be able to assess myself as truthfully as possible: my capabalities, the things I have yet to learn and the skills I must keep on developing. Cheating would give me a false, delusional sense of self. I don't want that kind of trap.

I would rather fail than cheat. I believe that cheating doesn't accomplish anything. What is important is I have learned something from class.
