Frankly, I cheated in examination in the past when I ' m in college . I think ,is not scarce to see in college ,high school . But I know I 'm wrong ,I shouldn't to cheat to pass the exam , but I don't want to get a high score or get a scholarship by cheating . Because I really don't like the course , I don't want to listen any things ,the course is so bored . I just want to pass the exam . Maybe I really make a big mistake . But I have done it . I don't want to find a excuse . what do you think of cheating ? Have you cheating in exam?

I don't like to cheat, and I don't have tha abilities to cheat ^^. I am always nervous and many times teachers catched me red-handed (there's no real punishment for cheating in my country :P. Ofcourse you can't pass such test if you were catched on cheating, that's all). I've cheated few times just to pass or to have higher grade. Even some of my teachers were saying: "You can cheat, but you can't let me catch you cheating". So you understand why I can tell that cheating isn't anything bad (Until you are cheating when you should really be prepared. this is difrent for me. If human lifes depends on your knowledge then it's better to fail than to cheat.) Cheers and happy myloting.

when i was still in school, even in college, i cheated -- believe me, whatever form of cheating i guess i've done it all. but this happens only when i'm to bored to study the night before or doesn't give a d*mn with the subject. i just simply ask for an answer, i don't care whether it's wrong or right. sometimes i open my notes in front of me when the teacher doesn't really care at all as well if his/her students open their notes. yes we do have teachers like that. anyway, i also had a small sheet of paper that has all the possible answer and we usually keep it hidden somewhere on our table/chair. it's so small so it's not noticeable. hehehe.. ever since i was not sent to our dean's office or somewhere just because i cheated. well, i guess i'm good at doing it. hahaha..

Sure I did cheat in examination. Else I would still be in my college,struggling to get passed. Cheating in current system is absolutely necessary. Why does a student fail? Because he/she can not mug up and spew out facts in exams?Are analytical,creative abilities of students taken into account ? No? When we have an education system which emphasizes on brain damaging works like memorizing things,it is vital to cheat inorder to survive. Until you change the system,cheat the system.

I have never cheated and will never do that. Once when i was giving an important exam(an exam where alot of people expected alot of things out of me) i didn't knew an answer and i was afraid that if i don't answer that question the expectations would be lost so a though came in my mind that why don't i cheat but instantly i though that is bad and i became calm and thought of that answer and suddenly i got an answer :) and i got full marks in that exam and came up to the expectations of the people and i was too happy that i didn't cheat but as for you it is ok you confessed and you only cheated once for some reason.

Cheating is not an activity I would recommend doing. I tried it a couple of times, though. Yes, you got to answer your exam but it's the anxiety of getting caught and the guilt after you've done it that's sooo tiring. It's more tiring than when you actually studied.

Hi.No i've never cheated in my exams.I personally feel that cheating is really stupid because exams are a medium that allow us to test our knowledge to determine whether we're fit to be promoted to next grade.So if we cheat we're only fooling ourselves and harming ourselves in that we don't know as much as we should know at that level.If you know what i mean.So i'd suggest you be sincere since only you will lose out if you cheat.I had many opportunities that came my way,to cheat.But ichose not to.But i did cheat once-i didn't copy for myself,i showed my friends answers at the french exam.Thats also cheating so i've stopped.I know i sound very goody goody but thats how i am! :)

when i was in highschool i used to be the one my friends would depend on to pass LOL while i never cheated to get the answers.. i DID help my friends to pass theirs.. and in one class the exams were so lengthy that we set up a system with the entire class where we had 4 people study different sections and provide the answers for different portions of the test for the rest of the kids. i bet if wed spent as much time studying as we did choreographing this intricate cheat plot.. wedve all passed without it LOL
