Hello guys.

1. I doing a biology ISA soon. My class was told to revise about topics J, K and L (which I believe was set by the exam board). But I'm a bit unsure about some of topic J so I was wondering whether asking my teacher for some help on topic J would be cheating?

2. Also if I asked her afterwards, "If in the ISA the exam, they ask us about this part topic J, do I need to write this this and that about Topic J?". Would this be classed as cheating? I am a bit worried about this as my teacher has probably read the paper and mark scheme. So I don't know whether the question I ask appears in the test or not. Because if it does, she could be telling me the answer, and I'm worried that I will be cheating if this is the case.

So would 1 and/or 2 be cheating?

Thanks guys!

cheating is where you bring prepared notes to exams or your teacher actually tells you where to revise (and where not to focus on). or in school mocks (so not official ones) are identical to the actual exams. but i dont think even a teacher knows what comes up in the exams.

by coursework, I meant essay subjects like English and History, where you're supposed to only hand in one draft and not have teachers tell you how to improve it.

Hello there,
The teacher has access to the ISA exam, and has probably seen it. She also told us to revise certain areas, which I believe were outlined by the exam board.

I don't think either of them count as cheating. It will vary depending on the teacher, but I asked almost an identical thing in as you described in 2 and I got an answer.
Hello there, what do you mean by the bold and underlined section?

We cheated in all of our ISAs yet people in my class still managed to get Ds. No one really cares if you cheat (aside from the exam board). The only real damage will be that the grade boundaries will be quite high but that doesn't matter either.

I just mean that some teachers will say "you need to research it yourself", and some teachers will give you the answer. But I'd place my bets on them not reporting you for cheating if you do.
With asking them my question?
