This is the reason why people are vile to others who do get extras and need them. I for one have on multiple occasions been accused of being exactly what the OP is and this is only as a result of people like the OP!
Exam extras should be regulated much more and vigorously, if only to prevent people abusing the system and so preventing others from tarring every person with the same brush. This is vile.

You need to cheat just to get people to like you? That's rather sad, Imo. You can be assertive without cheating you know (or do you?). Also, how can you say you're a moral person when you do something as immoral as lie to do better then people who actually put in some effort to do well? Though I doubt I can change your mind so this post is pointless, I suppose.

I have loads of morality, for the right things though. You have to be ruthless in life otherwise you'll just end up in a **** job, with **** pay, end up being a push-over and no-one in work will like you
A certain quote from Churchill comes to mind. You know, the one about refusing to surrender?

It is always those trying to do it the honest way that get shafted, so it many ways it comes down to "if you can't beat em, join em"

There would be reasonable adjustments in place to ensure that someone does get any extra help in real life.

I was told the time was so strict in exams so that it is a good measure of how fast we can solve problems and analyse in real life situations (I actually hardly ever finish my exams), someone isn't going to get extra time in a real life circumstance are they.
Not being rude, just don't really get it??
There's a huge difference here. People are given extra time because their disabilities mean they may read or write slowly. It's nothing to do with intelligence. You can have my extra time and rest breaks and all my disabilities if you want?
I don't agree with extra time in exams. In my opinion, either:
1. Exams are supposed to test how people do under time pressure. In this case someone who can't do well under time pressure shouldn't have extra time - it's like giving someone who isn't mathematically minded a calculator, and no-one else.

Lolol, 'human decency', ethics and morals.. because he managed to blag an extra 20 minutes in his exams? He's hardly sending Jews into the showers.
