    So to clarify, to not read an internet arguer's post and simultaneously show him the folly of internet arguments is LESS intelligent and mature than arguing an internet argument i.e. a needless and meaningless one.

    And evidently you feel that's less intelligent and mature than trying to reignite said argument with a comment that reads 'LOL' and 'you are retarded'?
    Are you sure you're not on the spectrum?

    But seriously guys, a situation like this is unique for every instance. You can't place an overall judgment on it. I have a derived question: Would you report your BEST friend?

    Yes:
    - others work hard, they deserve a grade/might ruin someone's chance of getting a particular grade due to boundaries shifting
    - desperate much, kinda shows you're really scared (nothing wrong with a little tremble during the exam though)
    - get them disqualified now and you may just save their life and potentially teach them a lesson (or as someone used with engineering as an example, other people's lives could be saved)
    - doing this may just get you liked by invigilators, which may benefit you later on

    No:
    - not your problem, let them mess up somewhere down the line
    - 'snitches get stitches' (BUT PLEASE STOP USING THIS PHRASE)
    - probably gonna get caught anyway, if you successfully 'cheat' in one exam (the parameters being you increased your grade and you remained undetected) then you'll probably do it again. No different to gambling IMO (wait, it is gambling!)
    - you really aren't gonna be liked upon by your school/college peers if they find out you reported them/someone


    Apologies for my essay.

    Yes I would, because it's unfair on me and everyone else who is doing the exam honestly. GCSE grade boundaries are relative to how everyone does, so if everyone who cheated was brought to justice, you could end up with a better grade.

    No. I'm not from the UK and not sure what exams UK students take but I know for sure I wouldn't run my mouth off bout it. I know I'm not perfect student myself and definitely cheated on quizzes for "difficult" classes. If the person gets caught, they get caught. I wouldn't feel better than someone else because they cheated and told the authority they cheated while I'm not a perfect student myself.

    IKR. It's not like they're asking you for the answers.


    Only people who report cheaters are the people who were too stupid to get a high grade and are envious that people are a bit more resourceful than them in tight situations.

    Chances are a person who got a good grade on an exam wouldn't give a damn if they saw another person cheating, as far as they got the grade that they wanted.

    Yeah I bet they feel so cheated when they end up with a better grade and didn't have to work for it.
