I have been teaching in college for 7 years now and one thing that I have realized lately and that it didn't come in my mind when I was still a student, that cheating isn't really good. It only gives you temporary relief but it's consequence is permamnent. What I mean is, it pays to learn your lessons than to cheat around for when time comes, you won't know you are already applying what you have learned from school. It's also hurting to the teacher to see their students cheating around. The hardwork and labor they extended to their students are at par of the love and desire for their students to learn.

You may be right but not at all times. I admit I cheated during my schooldays but tantamount to what I intend. I knew that its bad but I also took part on the brightest side. Meaning, I cheat a little but I studied more.

I also think cheating is not good.If one cheat,and get good grades in the exam,the other student may be not happy because they work hard,and the one cheat get good grades easily.In my opinion, knowledge is nothing but your belonging.A person with knowledge is a strong one ,we study from the text not only learn the knowledge,but also learn how to be a really person. As cheating is common in this world,we should control ourself,don't cheat,no matter what others do ,just be yourself.

Hi, jheypee26 You are right about it that cheating isn't good because it can start to you to make bad things. The worst of it will leads to you to make it always when you take the examations or tests. For me cheating is a bad habit that's why you must avoid cheating even you will fail in your exam because you can learn about it that next time you will prepare and study hard to pass the exam. Have a nice day.

Learning from mistakes is the best way to remember the right thing.

That's right. Students who cheat never will be prepaired for real live and never will be able to realize a good job. It's really strange how students waste their time looking for different and new ways how to cheat without being seen instead of using this time to study a bit or to prepair themselves better. What kind of person could be a cheater? The don't show any kind of respect to the teacher who is trying to give them a better future realizing a hard job.

I have never cheated myself but in some schools I was in we had the most stupid of teachers. On one occasion the previous class got the same test as us and the teacher had been giving the answers on the black board for them, so when we walked in a few minutes later we understood they were the answers so like quick foxes we wrote down all the answers even before we got the paper the questions were on, so she was like: errrr what the heck is this? And then when she found out she didn't give a dang about it anymore and let us continue. Or some teachers let us redo missed tests and we were sitting together and were able to use each other knowledge. If you were alone redoing a test, what we did was asking people walking by what the answer was, if you were lucky they were classmates who already did that test and you got yourself a higher mark. Is it bad? Yes if you don't learn your tests properly, but if you do learn properly the damage is not that bad.

Cheating never really helps you out in any situation. it may be a fast and easy course to travel, but you gain little or nothing from it. If you have to cheat, you aren;t gaining any benefit from the achievement.

Yes, I do understand your feeling. I did cheat in my school exam but when it came to my board exam I didn’t and I cleared. Its all because teacher have a pet and think this childe know everything. On the other side they already think that the other child can not do better . Even though if the child does some good she wont appreciate and will always insult the child in the class, this make the child lose interest in that subject and wont study. What is send out the same thing will come back. Teacher have some responsibility.

cheating is really not good. i'm a student and i know it well, i did cheat or help my friends cheating back then. i think it's unfair for those who study hard. besides, if we get good grades from cheating, we just won't study and become stupid ourselves.

In my opinion, student himself should know the long-term consequence if they start to cheat or even become a professional cheater. They will get nothing through their tiring study. Punishment, especially physically ones, will not do anything. It is a matter of self-consciousness. If they know how cheating will damage their own mental and their future, they probably will stop. Such a mental should be deleted straightly.
