    i know this guy who him and the person sitting next to each other have cheated in gcse. The way they did this is that on was holding up the sheets vertically while both copied. They didn't get caught and only got a C grade each.

    My question is:
    if they were to get caught would they be disqualified from all gcses? because according to the jcq website : https://www.jcq.org.uk/exams-office/...sments-2016-17,
    they could only be disqualified for that subject as it said 'due to circumstances' for the candidate sanction area. Exam board is aqa btw

    The exam board would not care now as the exams are over. Remember snitches get stiches. If you really care about it and it affects you then ask someone what to do.

    Unless there's solid evidence they can't be disqualified.

    Yeah, if caught cheating their disqualified from that exam and very potentially every exam their doing by that exam board.

    Don't risk it! it's not worth it.
    They must be dozy to copy off each other while none are clever enough to get them a high grade...

    Yes they would have potentially have been disqualified from all of their GCSE exams, but even if they did cheat none would give a **** now as the exams were over long ago.

    They rarely do, in fact the victims just whine about it.

    Also what with using the word 'potentially' because it would rather be unfair to disqualify them for all their exams even if they haven't cheated for all of them

    Without sounding rude or impolite in any way, shape or form, honestly move on from it, it's just a GCSE exam anyway with a C grade which isn't a big deal. Also it's been a month since GCSE results day everyone has moved on.

    This is the thing with cheating in exams, unless you are a pro at cheating in exams and now all the tricks inside out at cheating don't do it, it's just not worth it and the chances of getting caught are quite high, I would say around 70%, if you can get away with cheating then great, I would grab my coke can and join you in for a party but if you get caught then you are ****ed, like literally ****ed, no Sixth Form or University and possibly even jobs will take you in if they know that you cheated on some exams you took at the age of 16, it's just not worth it and at the end of the day if you do fail in the exams just retake it rather than risking about ruining your life just to get that A*.

    It should. Are you allowed to use graphing calculators in your exams?
