How Did It Happen?!

I had a good friend/classmate when I was in grade 6. His name is Manolo (deceased). He was really good in basketball and tract and field while I was not. Modesty aside I excelled in the classroom while he "sucked." I believed that due to a "give-n-take relationship" we were like birds of different feathers flocking together. He patiently taught and played table tennis with me and in return I let him copied my test-papers. During tests and quizzes he always sat behind me. One day our Science teacher gave us an unexpected quiz of what we learned from our lesson of the day. As usual my friend sat behind me. When l finished writing down my answers I secretly passed to him my test-paper. It took him just few minutes to copy my answers and gave back my test paper. The next day our teacher distributed our graded test papers before going to the day's lessons. My friend and I were surprised that we were the only ones who did not get back our test papers. However, we noticed there were two test papers our teacher was holding. The teacher looked at me and my friend. He was grinning. Then he said: "Will the real Julito come to the front and identify which of the two identical test papers is his!" Do you have any guess of what actually happened?

Oh dear - I think 'sucked' in the classroom is putting it mildly - he must have been really dumb to copy your name!

@bluesa . . You know since I was a kid, it is my belief that whatever talent a person has, he should share. One of my talents when I was a kid was a bit good in the classroom. So I readily and kindly shared that talent to my classmates/friends who lacked the so-called "classroom talent."

That was surely not a genius, it also happened in our school, a dumb girl copied from me and also copied my name.
