I took my OCR Gateway Chemistry exam last week, I revised really hard for it and was really pleased with how it went.
Now, it has just come to my attention today via. friends that a boy in my class (who I used to sit next to, and he used to copy me ALL the time, and never did any of his own work) has been saying that he copied my answers to at least two of the questions in this chemistry exam.
This is perfectly feasible as he was sat just across the aisle from me, (on my left hand side, I'm right handed) and was next to the wall, with no invigilators around, but I don't know whether to complain or not.
Please note, that this is an almost universally disliked, chronically lazy, rude, arrogant boy who does little to no revision and isn't predicted very high grades.
It really upsets me that I worked so hard for this exam, and now he is possibly set to get a better grade because of the work that I put in.
But then again, I don't want to stir up a whole lot of trouble and be forever known as 'the girl who snitched on so-and-so'
Can anyone advise me on what to do?

If they see you have identical answers you could both be disqualified.
I'm not sure if this means you should mention it or not - they can't prove who copied who, so they can't disqualify him and not you - but don't worry about snitching if it comes to that - it may be worth asking a teacher's advice who you really trust, this is your life he could be ruining.
