    If it's for your real GCSE then no.

    If it's just practice/end of topic or unit then still no. Cheating is always wrong!

    I really wouldn't risk it. If you have a oral exam where it is recorded, if ever the moderator or your teacher wants to check it against the internet (for whatever reason) they can easily find if you've lifted material elsewhere. If anything, take inspiration from it but do not copy it word for word.

    Is it cheating though? Don't know much about it, am not very good at german (school made me take it). You are marked for memorizing text, we had help from teachers making the text so how would this be cheating?

    Do just that bro.

    I came first in my year at German AS.

    I can say with absolute certainty that that will conventionally give you an amazing grade of C. And I can also see that you don't care that much about how you might do in languages. I might be wrong of course...

    I care how I do in all my GCSE's. I am supposed to be writing my oral exam up now. Maybe this post was just a way for me to procrastinate. I have decided not to do it, it is a recorded exam, everything I say could be used against me, no point in risking it. Thanks for your help guys.

    use bits and change a bit because they you're not cheating, but don't risk copying it word to word.
