for me, it is not okay to cheat in any subject. as a student it is your responsibility to study your lessons. if you study your lessons well, then failing is not a problem anymore.. and the worst thing is to make it a habit. cheating in the class is like stealing. we have our own brains to use..

it's not really a good idea to cheat.but there are instances that cant be avoided.some students who are also financially unsecure fear that they may fail in an exam or afraid to fail the expectation of parents cant avoid doing this.of course studying ahead of time is the best way to avoid cheating.

I consider it ok to cheat once in a while, but making it a whole habit is going a bit to far. You should just study as hard as you can and get the grade normally and maybe with a little bit of cheating. But, always remember that if you get caught it could be much worse then just getting a C on a test or quiz.

Cheating once and not being caught might lead to another cheating.But i guess it's normal for a student to cheat.i say yes that most of us cheated even in homeworks or projects.hahaha.but there are those lazy students who depend on cheating all time and have cheating as a habit.

I have to disagree. Sure cheating can get you all of that but what's the point of going to universities except to waste your time and money only to cheat and learn nothing from that.

i disagree too.cheating can be acceptable if you do it just a few times because of unexpected situation.but not to the point you have it as your character and be proud bragging on the result of it. what's the use of good marks when in real application at work you dont know anything.does it mean you have also to copy or cheat the work of others?

I do cheating, only if i didnt study that particular subject. by the way i always study my lessons before an exam but sometimes the schedules were so hectic that i cant take it up all. and besides, my way of cheating is just asking my friends for an answer, not those opening my notes or books.

cool.i did it also when i was still a student.but on exams,i only asked for clue or hints thAT may lead me to the answer.opening books or notes is way too far.

once in awhile is ok, if you really dont know it. If you make it an habit you may get thru the class and end up not having somthing to show for going to the class

i remembered a true-to-life story movie. a guy cheated on an exam tried to copy the answers of his classmate.found out that he also copied the name of his classmate who happened to be a girl instead of his name!he didnt go to school anymore after that shameful event.

I am against cheating but I believe that it is fine to cheat at critical times, I mean who does not cheat once in a while? I would not make a hobby out of it but there are times when it is a must to cheat for you, especially with those matriculation exams, one year they make an easy exam and everyone get great grades while a year later the exam is hard as hell and almost everyone fail. It is just like a way of survival.

For me it is not good to cheat and it is best to express what you know about particular subject.If you cheat and happen to caught by your teacher then there is chances of not allowing you to write or attend your exam.If you want to cheat but be careful while doing so...

From my opinion, I can say that student should not cheat because cheating is a bad habit and at the same time cheating is not acceptable in the society.The student should know how to handle the responsibility to learn the lesson. If you cheat no body is going trust on us.

Being a student and cheating I should say it is very bad habit. If we cheat once than it will become habit.Being a student I would like to inform that who ever have a habit of cheating please avoid it. As by cheating we are cheating with our own life not to teacher. Cheating will affect in future when we reach higher class.

People can only get away with cheating so much. However, its best to stop when you are ahead. Actually its best to not even start, but if you start cheating and you keep cheating, eventually you will get lazy and eventually you will get caught. Deep down, a lot of people like to see how much they can push the system and cheat in class. Therefore, they do cheat. However, cheating will just serve to make you lazy in the long run. Plus, you really will not learn anything. In fact, the main person that you are cheating is yourself in the end. A good grade only lasts for a short time but you are really not learning the material. I can see why people do it even though I do not agree with it and rarely, if ever do it myself. It just is opening yourself up to being caught.

In my openion cheating is ok for some extentent but it should not be a habit.maybe we are unable to study due to some problems at home in such a sitivation we can cheat but should be careful .

IMO, occasionally yes. But as a habit a big NO - NO! You will regret it the future when you already have a job and you dont know what to do because you only cheat your way to graduation.

I don't think it's ever okay to cheat. If for whatever reason you're about to fail the course, then you should study more and try harder. Cheating may be the easiest way, but it's not honest. Cheating is dishonest to your teacher, your school, and yourself. You don't learn anything by cheating.
