My friend cheated in the exam- should I approach him? Watch

    A reliable source told me that my friend cheated in an exam by storing notes in his calculator o_O?? I would never tell a teacher, but should I approach him and ask if he did cheat? Especially since he was boasting about it being so easy and laughing at others who found it hard.

    Thanks

    Storing notes in his calculator? He's either really smart or really stupid. But either way it's legendary :awesome:

    Leave him. He'll get what he deserves soon enough.

    And if he says yes what will you do then? Go ok, nice one and walk away?

    it's a bit late now but if he shows the same kind of behaviour before or after his summer exams e.g being cocky about the exam, then you can tell the invigilator to check his calculator or checks everyone calculator or tell someone straight after the exam

    in my skl, further maths students must have their calculator checked, so cheating is minimised

    IMO, i would confront the person

    I'd say to grass him up, but in the long run, you'd be screwed by him and possibly your class mates as well... that's not good

    Why does it matter what he did as long as it never hurt you?

    Just leave it, it is very difficult to prove and you'll probably lose his friendship if you grass him up or tell people you think he cheated.

    He'll get caught out one day, but he got away with it this time.

    I've done that in the past... @[email protected]

    Either way, unless it was a very important exam (competing for a job place for example) I would keep quiet.
