    Hi,

    Basically in my Geography class before the January exam, I saw a girl writing stuff on her arm, and openly admit that she was going to cheat, a few other people saw this, but honestly I never said anything partially because of test anxiety and just being completely unsure on what to do..

    So on results day, I did pretty good, (got an A ) and so did she, however she was really shouting about it and pretty much pee'd off half the class, especially some of my friends who never did as well and knew she never deserved it due to cheating.

    It's really playing on my mind, because I don't really care about her, yet I don't want to wreck her A levels and consequentially her uni application. =/

    Obviously it's to late to declare she's cheating 2 months after the exam, however I have a feeling she's dumb enough to do it again in June,

    What would you do?

    You should have taken a picture of her arm at the time. You could have sent the picture to the Daily Mail.

    As the old saying goes "she's only cheating herself". It's certainly true, if she goes on like it then she'll perform poorly when it matters at uni etc. It's not your exam she cheated on so there shouldn't be a problem , only care about your own education; you're the only one doing it!

    If you do like telling someone, like the teachers, there's no harm in going to them in confidence and saying what she did! I would do it, if it were me. I hate cheaters.

    If you cheat, you only cheat yourself. She will pay for it when she starts university and its obvious she hasn't a clue or maybe when she's in the working world.

    If you say anything now, You're going to look like a petty little person who was miffed that someone you don't like did well. You should have turned her in then and there; not only does she have an unfair advantage herself but due to the adjusting grade boundary system she also disadvantaged everyone else, no matter how small the effect may have been.

    If I were you, I'd watch out for it in June, and you find her doing it, Turn her in. If she's writing things on her arm, then i suggest when everyone's seated in the exam hall you should put your hand up and tell and invigilator, that way she's trapped and they can prove it.

    Don't feel guilty about ratting her out. If she's cheating, it's all she deserves; silly girl.

    If you had spoken up then and there you might have achieved something but there is nothing you can do now.

    If she was really bad then she wouldn't have got an A just from writing stuff on her arm... if I were you I wouldn't tell because that seems to me to be disproportionate. Perhaps tacitly show her the bad side, like by telling her stories of people in exams who have been caught cheating etc.

    What can you do? Got no proof yo.

    Sure, it may have deprived someone worthy and honest of a place at uni but there's not really much can do now.

    Don't do anything. There's no point. Like many have said, she's only cheating on herself

    Subtley/annonymously tell a teacher, but say that you don't want to ruin her A-levels? She'd probably receive a warning from the teacher and would probably not risk it in June. That way, you're not responsible for wreking her A-levels but at the same time you've stopped her cheating.
