    Absolutely.

    Put it this way, both of you are applying for UCL or LSE, the cheater cheated and got himself that A* instead of the A, guess who will be going to UCL? Yup it won't be you because the one who cheated beat you to it.

    No. I wouldn't care enough, though I'd be peeved if they did better than me in an exam if they cheated and I didn't but I wouldn't grass them up.

    I'd blackmail them, then report them for cheating, then cheat.
    That doesn't really work. If you blackmail them and then turn them in anyway, they have no motivation not to tell the authorities that you've been blackmailing them.

    No, what other people do in those situations is their business. I'd probably feel sorry for them though and hope for their sake the'd get their act together in the future.

    I'd deny it. Who's going to believe a cheat?

    People here acting like they haven't cheated before haha.


    Look I'm not saying cheating is good or something people should do, but if you didn't understand something in a very crucial exam and you had the chance to ask a better prepared (not smarter) person for the answer you're telling me you wouldn't?

    And to all you folks going on about grade boundaries. If you studied hard enough and got a good grade, why would another person's grade affect you.

    Person 1 : HEY I got an A*
    Cheater : So did I, all thanks to Jim
    Jim: A* as well


    Everyone's happy

    I would be inclined to. Why should that person get away with it? It wouldn't be fair on the rest of the kids who actually studied hard.

    I have never cheated or felt the need to cheat at anything. I want to be proud of my grades and achievements no matter how modest they are. It's a bit crass of you to suggest people here have cheated.

    No. I wouldn't care enough. Fair play if they can get away with it, I guess.

    It's literally not fair play, though. That's the one thing it definitely isn't.
