    Yeh, it's so tempting to fill in the marking table on the front of the exam..

    The trick is to get at the exam papers after the exam and simply change the name on the front of someone elses (preferably someone smarter than you) to your name. Ofcource you will probably still end up getting caught and being disqualified from every exam you've taken.

    German exams were the worst. For the aural our teacher was miming and giving us hints and for the listening we were in a german room! And we had things like basic preposition and words on the wall (which were actually quite useful!)

    I like the water bottle idea! I suppoe you could get away with it if you wrote really small! Maybe your ciould write itin code or something hmmmmm

    One of my sisters mates reckons you could cheat by keeping a load of notes hidden in the school toilets and while in the exam to ask if they could go! I'm not sure if this would actually happen in theory though...

    You could probably get that correct actually because cars are coaches I think!

    sorry some of these suggestions are really really stupid. i mean how much of your entire physics syllabus can you fit onto your waterbottle sticker or the palm of your hand?! like two lines. you might as well memorise it. it would take about three seconds.

    I believe the best way of cheating, (not that I've tried, but seen), is by writing in pencil something on your calculator. You turn your calculator facing you in your see through pencilcase and look at it when you need. For sure, you can't write an essay, but the occassional help like intrusive and extrusive rocks is helpful or how to write yours sincerely, (which i learnt! for french) = Je vous pris d'agréer Monsieur/Madame, l'expression de mes sentiments distingués. and yes i am doing french next year, how did you guess

    Well a history exam my dad was invigilating in, a lad went out for a toilet break near the beginning, and got his older sister to come sit the exam for him. (She was a year older and they were both dark and pretty similar looking) ... have a feeling he was found out though

    lol! how similar looking were they for them to think that they could get away with it? we're not allowed water bottles...someone had 1 yesterday and it got taken away to be examined...our invigilators are tooo observant.

    There was a guy in my school last year sent txt messages to people asking for the answers, he did it in a few exams until he dropped his phone and got disqualified, serves him right if you ask me though.

    Cheating is an art form. Cheating is simple.

    Here are some of the methods I used.

    Maths and Science - pencil in notes on to calculator.
    French and German - write key phrases or even all your work in a dictionary for controlled coursework.

    Any - write notes in chewing gum wrappers
    - write notes on the gum itself
    - take a crib sheet in to the exam in your palm slide it under the paper or in it somewhere.
    - Write on one side of your rubber.
    - Write notes on the label of a bottle of water or inside it, so you can see through.

    i've found that had I wanted to cheat it'd have been very easy. I took my purse into every exam in my see through pencil case which I though was ironic. I could have put notes in that. They're not particulaly strict, In the french listening I could see peoples papers easy, just by glancing up. I think it depends on honesty, unfortunatly a few people aren't and that would undermine the grades of others.
