as far as I know, noone has been. As long as the exameners don't get 100 copies of the same course work without being edited, then they cannot get to you.

In your case, just for research and such is fine. I have done it, and some cases it is required (IE the UKAB Coursework equation for Access)

One of my m8s are panicing as they put there email address on this site asking for someones coursework (so far behind)... But although I have no evidence of this, and this is my opinion, I think nothing will happen.

As long as you have not taken someones coursework, slapped your name onto it, and handed it in, you should be fine. As for your m8s, if it is different enough, then they should be fine.

Please note that I may be wrong on this.

Good luck in your exams, and hope your german A2 goes well.

hey. thx 4 the reply... yea i hope he doesnt get busted. i read this report that examiners are supposed to mark 700 papers a day each in 40 seconds. hahahaha

german A2 is no prob at all... i have to come up with a speech on something cultural in germany... seeing that i am half german and speak the language fluently i'm gonna think of the speech on the bus on the way to school hahaha
prolly gonna be on Michael Schumacher...
i'm doing my GCSEs at the mom. so i did the A-Level ahead to save time. i got a A for the A1 if thats wat its called...
i did it with a bunch of other german students and one of the 2 exams we did for the first set of exams was like a 2:30 hour paper... everybody was finihsed so we were let out after 45 mins hahahaha but they kept us in isolation so i'm guessing its all fine.
crazy though... i'm living in Asia and there are exams that start at 7pm at night!
i think edexcel should have different exams for different parts of the world... would also eliminate the time zone cheating

It would make sence, different time zones. But I am sure it has gone past Edexcel and such.. so not much I can do really....

Having exams that late at night, or early morning is stupid. You don't get to concentrate well, so you don't get the grades you can get.

What do you think?

yea its crazy... exams should be at noon or latest like 3 pm...
and the english lit/language papers should be earlier...
cuz they're 2:30 hour papers which require a lot of thinking and writing and if ur tired u just **** it up.
my exam time table isnt so bad this year... except for the 4th of june where i have two french exams in the morning and a maths paper from 5-7pm
