    Hi,

    there is a boy in my class who cheats all the time. In ISA's he copies people's papers and in exams he goes on his phone and looks at pictures he has taken prior to the exam to look at during the A Level exams. It is a wonder he hasn't been caught yet. (sentence removed by TSR community team). But idk what to do, should I grass him up, or should I just go under the assumption that he will eventually get caught?

    if it was me I would tell since cheating is wrong and it means he could get into a competitive university such as oxford cause he does well and it would mean someone else who actually did well by not cheating might not get in. But thats my view, I can't stand cheaters :/

    I agree with you, but should I tell my teacher or the invigilator or some-one else because he does this all the time.

    teacher or exam coordinator at school as they will deal with it if it still happens after that then go straight to an invigilator

    putting his full name online seems a little premature, and invasive.

    But if he is cheating, and especially to the detriment of others, then you need to do something. Raise the issue, possibly annonymously, and get the teacher(first, dont go straight to invigilator) - and then hopefully they will pay more attention, and spot the cheating.

    Right yeah, I suppose I should do this. I know I put his full name but he is cheating and doesn't cease to cheat so I thought it was kind of justified.

    But yeah I will probably do this, thanks for your advice

    Hi,

    I don't know if anyone has seen my previous post relating to this, here is the link: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...1#post42643831

    There is the boy in my class and I will name and shame him, XXXXXX who cheats in any way he can. But this takes it to far. He pretends to have dyslexia to get more exam time and consideration for this. I don't have a problem with people getting this, but he is a no good faker who shouldn't be getting this.

    I know for a fact he is not dyslexic he is lazy and a cheat. So the question arises, should I tell the exams guy that he is faking or a teacher or what as I don't feel that he should be entitled to this.

    Thanks in advance for any replies.

    Well, considering you're so much of a scraff that you're willing to reveal his identity and his location on a student forum, I don't really see what's stopping you from informing your exam officer

    I don't think you should make accusations against someone that you cannot prove on a public forum - you could end up in serious trouble. I recommend you delete the thread or edit the content so that the person is not named.

    I agree with the above, that you should not name the person.

    As for extra time, in an academic setting, to get this - he 'should' have been tested, either with a full dyslexic test, or a cut down school one..

    If he passed these tests, to get extra time.. then there is little you can do to disprove it, as no matter how many times you go to the school saying 'he isnt dyslexic!!!' you have no proof - yet they+he, have a test to show that he is.

    leave him be, you can't do stuff like that forever he'll get caught out.
    also he'd have to do a test and have a report written and some of these specialists are good at sussing people out-on work experience a teenage girl tried to claim she was depressed to get out of going to school -yeah the doc wasn't convinced.

    He told me himself that he deliberately wrote numbers the wrong way etc. in order to pass the test. I have the proof of his word although it will hardly be substantial. He said he only wants extra time and that he changed his test accordingly.

    He sits in a corner, not in the middle of the hall. There are not many invigilators walking around at the time. I think I will because he shouldn't be doing this as it is wrong.

    Someone in my year does this but they still failed all their january exams so I guess it doesn't help that much.
