    I have autism and yet I get 90%+ in exams; I'm also allowed special conditions for exams (my own little room to take them in, and rest breaks if I get stressed) because of my condition. If the OP really is good at lying, they might have pretended to have a disability like Asperger's, which would actually support their high test scores.
    Asperger's is diagnosed at an early stage, unless a special exception... Besides I am sure they would talk to his family to see what he was like whilst a child to say that he/she is autistic... So that one wouldn't really work

    Asperger's is diagnosed at any age; it actually doesn't tend to be that obvious in childhood, because few parents are going to go to the doctor saying 'my child is abnormally clever and doesn't socialise readily'; mine just presumed I'd grow out of it, and I actually got my diagnosis when I was 17.

    They could always have got their family to play along; depends how good a liar they are

    I was taught to lie from a very young age. There were some experiences where my mother told me to lie for her multiple times as a child.

    I believe this is why I have this compulsion to lie about everything.

    You have to understand that I've become very good at deception/cheating that it is second nature to me now. And I even see it as a kind of challenge that I just cannot refuse.

    What do you think?
    Wow. I admit I would be concerned but some of the examples you provided- Wow, and good on you. I would do the same if I had the opportunity..In fact,I have on occasions done the same- I admit I have regretted it but when you got to do it, you do it. In a perfect world, I wish I didn't have to do it- but I do. I need to.

    But he/she said that they take the accent off when they talk to family.... does that mean the family doesn't know
    (and yeah, good point, my brother was diagnosed at 19 because the doctor thought my 4 year old brother was behaving strangely and said he was autistic!)

    Having read the above, that's some :awesome: stuff, share your exam cheating techniques, please? Don’t lie about not remembering.
    I'm intrigued by this too...for research purposes

    Tbf, it's not going to be much use to me now I've done my A-levels. I just want to know.

    I was taught to lie from a very young age. There were some experiences where my mother told me to lie for her multiple times as a child.

    I believe this is why I have this compulsion to lie about everything.

    You have to understand that I've become very good at deception/cheating that it is second nature to me now. And I even see it as a kind of challenge that I just cannot refuse.

    Here is what I lie about:

    1. UCAS - I lied about my grades, past education history. My personal statement was completely fabricated. I've had interviews, but I'm very good at pretending (as I've been lying/ leading double lives for so long).
    Guess what, UCAS tries to scare you that they can find out the real information, but they cannot. If they had easy access to such information, they wouldn't need us to fill it in anyway.

    2. Lie to my friends - I'm ashamed of my background so I lie and make people think I come from a privileged family. They would never suspect me because I'm not obvious and I've become good at it.

    3. My voice - My accent is faked. I'm from an area that has a regional accent but I completely turn it off and put on a fake accent constantly. Again, it has become second nature (of course I cannot use it when around my family).

    4. Exams - I cheat in almost all my exams. I averaged 90% in AS levels without cheating, but I just could not resist the challenge of cheating. So I put together many schemes to cheat in my A2's. I was never found out. You would not believe how complex some of these cheating schemes were...

    5. Extra time in exams - I lie about having some learning difficulties. This way I can get extra time in exams and other such perks. I had to lie and fake to my doctor in order to get this. But this was quite simple to do.

    6. General lies - I even lie when there is no need to. Recently my friend asked me what my UMS score was for a subject. In reality it was 92/100 but I told her that it was 93/100. I'm beginning to think this is a real problem. I can't help but just lie....!?

    I don't "cheat" on boyfriends/girlfriends etc though. It is a line that I'd never cross.

    The point of this post is I don't know if I should carry on with this lying behaviour. It has done me well, in the sense that I have offers from some of the top universities and I'm very good at not being found out.

    What do you think?
    I do the much the same as you, but the truth is everyone lies XD (or maybe I am lying)
    They're just not prepared to admit it, or even come up the same ideas we have.
    And it works because of my lies and cheating I got into Cambridge.
