    So,

    January exams are done and I'm going to uni in Sept but only have conditional offers lol

    I was wondering if anyone else would cheat in the exams to get the grades needed for uni cause i think i did ok in my exams but if i could have cheated, i think i would have..

    Hmmm...Would you? :confused:

    If I could get the grade I need for no work and there was no way anyone would ever find out then...

    no.

    I honestly wouldn't. I've cheated in class tests in the past (me and my friend used to answer share) but never for an official one. Where's the sense of achievement??

    I am sure I could cheat if I wanted to, but I don't 'cos I am terrified I'd get caught. So no, but if I thought I couldn't get the grades, and uni meant a lot to me, I might reconsider. I would be totally paranoid though!

    i see what you mean, i would be really paranoid, even though i won't be studying the same subjects at uni

    ha, was just a thought but i've done them now so it's too late to cheat!

    well it sort of defeats the point, i'd only cheat if i hated the subject/thought it was a waste of time

    No. They wouldn't be my academic achievements. Waay more trouble than it's worth. I don't mind cheating in class tests so long as you agree with a mate beforehand to help each other out but I never would for anything official.

    No I wouldn't. I'd rather not get the grades than get the grades knowing I shouldn't have.

    No. Like an above poster said, I used to cheat in silly tests the teachers made us take with my friends, but I'd never do it in an official exam. I'd feel so terrible, especially if I did well and my parents were congratulating me on it.
