    If I knew that i could get the grade i wanted without cheating then i wouldn't cheat. But if i really needed a good grade and wasn't quite there then i would, who wouldn't?

    No way, hose. If you cheat, that means you are not showing your real potential or ability in the subject and performance in the exam. It also means you don't believe in yourself to do well by yourself. If you really can't do it then why bother with the exam at all?

    No I wouldn't. I generally prepare for my exams beforehand so I don't need to cheat.

    Thinking more widely than A-Levels, I don't think I'd be able to feel good about myself for a long time afterwards if I cheated in an important exam, plus there's always the possibility that it could come back to haunt me in the future. That said, for an exam that was truly critical to my future plans I'm not sure that I could say with certainty that I wouldn't take advantage of an opportunity to get an advantage that presented itself if there was a negligible chance of bad consequences.

    Fortunately, I'm pretty much through the most important exams that I'll ever have to sit by now! :p:

    I wouldn't because I have an overactive guilty conscience. I'd end up confessing or just feeling ridiculously guilty for a long time.

    revise lots and you never need to cheat. revision is the ultimate key. with sciencey subjects the feeling you get when you walk out of the exam thinking you knew most of the stuff is a pretty good one. so no, I wouldn't cheat.
