So basically, I had a German speaking controlled assessment worth 15% of my total GCSE grade. While we had the speaking test, we were allowed 40 words to act as prompts and help us out. So because i'm such a lazy fool, I wrote the last 3 sentences of my last paragraph backwards for my 40 words. All of the words weren't conjugated and I wrote it backwards, so I thought it'd be fine. I got an A* for it, but obviously I cheated by having a pattern(can someone confirm if its cheating to do that). Examiners look out specifically for that, so I don't know what to do! i'm very busy to do something like this now with revision for mocks, and I remember absolutely nothing of it! what should I doooo?!
How smart are examiners? What course of action should I take?? (read desc.) Watch

It's really a grey area whether or not that's allowed or not, but I really wouldn't stress it. Examiners have to mark hundreds of speakings, they're proabaly not going to be that eagle eyed. I've known people to get away with much worse, especially at some schools where the teacher tells you in advance what to say and what questions's they'll ask.
