    If you snake then it might effect the whole class because then they will think other people cheated as well and they'll start checking everyone else.

    If he cheated, he won't get far in life so best not tell anyone.

    I don't either, but probably for a different reason.

    Kids are naive, which is lovely - but you're kidding yourself it you think everyone that has 'succeed' (define as you will) only got there through honesty, integrity and hard work. It would be nice if it were true, but it's not.

    Why get a worse mark in French (in this case) if you can cheat, get a higher grade and them drop the subject for A-Level and forget about it - without worrying the lower grade on a useless subject affecting your later uni apps? Why learn proofs at uni, parrot fashion, when you can just have them 'written down'? If you ever need them after graduating, just google them and apply them like normal people do outside academia.

    Not saying cheating is right, but to my mind it sure as hell is a grey area - and saying it'll cost them later in life? Seriously, if they're smart enough to know they can do better by cheating, they're already ahead of someone who knows they suck at the subject and just accepts it meekly.

    Anyways, i'm out. No point running in circles as we're unlikely to agree

    Honestly, in the future I'd say confront the person before going straight to an authoritative figure. Everyone makes stupid mistakes/unfortunate decisions, especially in their teens. And such a sanction in such a stage of their lives is bound to significantly harm their future prospects - all because of a stupid mistake. If they continue to cheat after you explicitly mention that you would report them if they did; then you can do so.

    Just what I would do, because I know people who have been in similar situations.

    A couple of days ago we were doing our French controlled assessment (writing) and I saw a student in my class cheating by looking at their draft copy on their phone. They did not get caught.What shall I do? I think I'm the only one that knows about it and they may know it was me that told the teacher they cheated. Shall I report it or ignore it? If I do report it, will they even be disqualified/whatever because the teacher does not have any evidence apart from my word?
    Failure to disclose crimes is illegal, so now you've told us you know you have no choice but to make the exam board formally investigate it.

    You just ruined someone's grades, and consequently their whole life, simply because you're mad. I hope you feel proud.

    Exam boards shouldn't take action on 1 report. Let's hope they got multiple reports otherwise this is absurd. Imagine getting banned because some **** said you cheated.

    Don't worry about it as Cheaters get found out sooner or later and this student may get found out some day and it may come back to bite them in the bum as what goes around comes around
