    Hi Guys,

    I've just watched this youtube video about smart drugs and students.

    I'm just wondering if you consider using smart drugs, such as modafinil, during exams as cheating?


    These drugs are fundamentally the same as caffeine or Adderall, I don't see why it should be considered as cheating. In the end you still have to do work and put in the effort to do well. After all, education has never been a level playing field. You get people with leaning disability and geniuses, so its only natural for one to do whatever it takes to do better
