    I wouldn't but many people cheated for the french writing exam 2 years ago, they brought sheets of paper with the piece if writing they were meant to have memorised before hand. They left them on under the seats after the exam :facepalm: and claimed that they were never told they couldn't take in a draft :rolleyes:

    Probably, it's not like grades or memorising a curriculum an abstract body deems neccesary is evidence of any kind of intelligence, it demonstrates nothing but the ability of the individual to collate and absorb data.

    I'd prefer to cheat in my tests so i could spend my time on genuine intellectual pursuits more worth while.

    I sometimes cheat in class tests if I haven't bothered going over the material the night before.

    If it were an A2 exam, I'd feel dirty all the time at university knowing I didn't earn my place there.

    Definitely if noone was going to find out. Who cares if its not your academic achievement? You get the grades to get somewhere else, be it uni or a job. Make that route as easy as possible.

    what do u mean if you could? you can! But as every person with any sense would, you choose not to. If you mean you were allowed, then it wouldn't be cheating. or am I nit-picking? :o:

    I've put no because I believe that if you can't handle three subjects' worth of exams at (relatively easy) A level then I don't see how you'd be able to cope with exams and coursework for 6-8 modules per semester at uni.

    However, two years ago before I got into Uni I would have defintely cheated if I could have gotten away with it because then I wouldn't have had to have worried about potentially not getting into the university I wanted to.

    I disagree with exams as I think they just test your memory rather than your actual skills and knowledge (IMO) but the reality is that you probably will end up doing loads at uni, so basically if you can't get your head down for a few A level exams then maybe uni isn't for you.

    Of course I would if I wasn't going to get caught and am struggling a lot in that specific subject and I know how to as well; just don't need to do it most of the times.

    oh, ok yeah if it was certain I'd get away with it I probably would cheat, although I would feel slightly guilty, not much though.

    Cheaters ruin the system for everyone else.
