    Who's that Dobbo guy on BBC Education? He said he couldn't believe his luck when those questions turned up in the paper. Well... He is lucky I have to say... or maybe not.

    I think so... Or they are intended to show the world that because these commenters can't even type correctly, they need to cheat in the exams?! Is that statement logical?:confused:

    and it says: "Exam cheats who have logged onto an internet page giving a sneak peak at A-level questions have been warned by examiners they can be traced. "

    Still implying that anyone who saw the questions, having no idea they were from the paper, somehow are "cheats"!

    They say in the article that they can trace people. In reality that is very hard and is probably a waste of time anyway. People can also go through proxys which cannot be traced, so they are just putting on a brave face and trying to scare the people who have looked at it.

    Yep it sure is, just read the ITV comments, typical crap from a rubbish TV channel with poor quality news and programming. How can the people who innocently looked at and helped the petey kid be blamed?!? That is absurd.

    I don't think they will be disqualified because they were un-aware they were helping a cheater. It will be pete2004 that is disqualified and on the radio they said a jail sentence would be likely for the culprit of these papers getting on the net.

    you can't even if u wanted to, they were moved to the mod boards i think....and i don't think it matters if you looked at them AFTER you'd taken the exam anyway[i suspect a whole host of people did once they'd done the exam and they realised the fellow had cheated]....if they can see who viewed the pages, they will also be able to see at what time they viewed the pages, proving it was after the exam, so they gained no advantage.
