Hey everyone.. I got zero in a test for helping my friends with their assignment..we became thirty minutes late because of that. I am done with my assignment, I was just helping them with theirs.. And when we got to the room, the quiz was already done- if we had been a few seconds earlier, we might have made it. I feel really bad, the test was so easy [it was our major subject] and I got zero. But at least it's for a good cause...but still, I feel bad...

yes I would definitely be on time in every class so I won't miss anything anymore. I'm not really mad, just a bit sad for what happened- I'm to blame too. I hope i do better in the next exams..

Seriously, you got zero point for your quiz or test? I am sorry to hear that. I think that you should know your schedule better, and you should make it before the class started. Helping your friends is a great cause. But do not let it affect your grade. Nonetheless, it is your future that you are talking about.

Well, we only had an hour to do the assignment.. We had to eat first, then do it. It was quite hard- it was making a program...Think, then type, then run the program and stuff..

lady, you could probably approach your teacher to give you a special quiz. that way it would be like a make over and erase the zero. what do you say? ann

thanks for the advice..But, no thanks. It's partly my fault anyway, i decided to help them, i should accept the consequences. And teachers in college do not give special exams anymore..

Yes, i got over it..at last. I'll just make up for the lost points somehow and my friends did learn their lesson too. I'll definitely not be late in any class, you really miss a lot in the subject.

Whewwwzz you know you have also a little mistake when helping your friend in his assignment, because if you realize assignment will be done home for the next day meaning there are a lot of time to make it unless there is an avoidable situation occur. In your situation, I think short period of time when you helping him that's why your late in the room... anyway make that situation lesson to you and your friend so that next time you know what to do... see you around.

Well, the assignment was posted in the net, and some of them did not have a computer and couldn't open the file where the assignment is. Yes, I learned my lesson, and we will never be late again.

yes, that's what friends are truly for. I hope that they are really true friends, so that in my time of need they will also be there to help me.

Hi, i think now isn't matter how bad you feel, its matter how good you feel because of help which you given to your friends. I'm sure they appreciated your help and they will do the same thing next time. Just remember that the good friends never forget your help and they will help you to! Thanks

Hey, I know how that feels like. Anyway, save that experience as a lesson learned, so you won't have to repeat it again. All you have to do now is to move forward, focus on your lessons, and ace your next quizzes and exams. You'll get off with it. Goodluck!

this kind of things will convert in to ur flash back memories after u grown up, now u might have feel it as bad, but when u r grown up u cant enjoy the things like this anymore,if u done the mistakes like this when u r a student no one will make it serious, as u have started this discussion, it made me to think my school life memories,those are golden days,i can never be like that any more in my life,the friends i've got are precious but i am not able to spend time with them...! so be cool as much as u can with ur friends

That's what happens when you do something that could jeopardize you're own academic performance I know friends are friends but home work is usually done with only one person and not two. I hope you don't do this again, these people aren't doing their work, they're not learning from it, cause you you're quiz.doing these would give you extra burden and friends gets even more benefit.

My friends will often get zeros..This is just for fun during the Internal tests. Some will even return the empty answer book during the internal tests, though they will be considered for the semester, but we never minded them.. i don't know how much tat zeros would cost in the semester exam's marks.. But if you compare the internal marks for the student who is getting good marks in Internal tests and quizzes along with the one who get zeros' it would be more or less same.. i will not get zero, i will get a minimum pass criteria in all tests by all the way that is possible!!!
