I did cheated in exams but I have only told answers and never asked for.Do you also cheat and whether you always ask answer or do tell the answers.

Even if you friend thinks he is going to fail, if you let him cheat, he now know that he doesn't have to work or study or listen because he can use YOU for the answers! And so he will not learn to study or work himself, and you are not helping him, but contributing to his own downfall when you're gone.

That's a point but sometimes we have to help our friends even though we know it's wrong.

No, I don't cheat. I don't let anyone steal my answers. It's wrong, and I feel like if they don't know the answers, then they shouldn't get it right on the test. It's not my fault they didn't study or pay attention in class, and I don't feel that slothful behavior should be rewarded. It makes my working hard less important if I let someone who has done nothing use my answers to get good grades that they don't deserve.

But what if your friend ask for an answer ,you can't say no to him if he says he's gonna fail.

hi raph, i used to cheat in emam before but i stopped it when i got to secondary school.i can say it was a devine arrangement .i had an instruction from a christian brother not to do such again and it stucked to my hearing as if he knows what i need .the advice came at the end of an exam i failed after relying on a cheating for survival .i took up the challenge and i changed to the most brilliant student in my class in the space of just 3 months.thank God for God!

I did cheat when i was in highschool but didn't afterwards. An exam is to test if a person has understoof the material taugh in class. If a person needs to cheat,he or she is better off to study something else. That person might not succeed later on as the study level becomes more difficult. It's just a waste of time. Cheating in college or university here results as expulsion from school even though u never ask but provide the answer. And once u get expelled, u get a bad reputation on your school record so it will be hard to make another application for another school.
