This has been a question pondering in my mind for some time.
Say you’ve been caught in a GCSE exam cheating. I know that you can be thrown off your exam and all other exams with the exam board, but I was wondering if the severity of the punishment changes with the type of cheating e.g looking at the work of the person next to you compared to bringing in notes. And are the invigilators obligated to tell you you’ve been caught, or does that wait until results day?

They are obliged to tell immediately. The severity of the punishment depends on what you did.
I’ve never heard of someone getting excluded for all exams in the UK for ten years - it’s one of the punishments but I can’t imagine what you’d have to do to get that.

Interesting. Another thing, is the student who is caught cheating immediately taken out of the exam room the moment they are caught cheating then, or is until after the exam that they are told?

It depends on the circumstance - You’d think they’d be taken out immediately, but I know a guy who was caught bringing a calculator into a maths exam (non calculator) and the invigilator held him behind at the end, so she noticed at some point mid exam, was a bit strange. He ended up not getting any of his GCSEs.

You are unlikely to be removed immediately as it's not the school's decision to ban you and if they remove you they effectively ban you from that exam. They would only remove you if your behaviour was impeding other students.

If they are going to report you for malpractice than they have to tell you asap, inform you of the evidence and give you the chance to make a written statement.

At my school there was someone (not predicted to pass) who went to the toilet during the maths exam and searched the answer on their phone and we reported it it was taken very seriously but she was let off because there wasn’t sufficient evidence. The consequences can range from a warning to you being banned from taking public exams for a set time.

I know of students that have been suspected of cheating in exams but there was just not enough evidence for the teachers to do anything and other instances where simple scribbles/doodles on the hand were taken incredibly seriously as they were viewed as some sort of code. It is difficult to see what is considered cheating so I suppose that all attempts need to be treated with the same level of severity.

tbh i think that you should isolate yourself from thinking about the cheating and know that as soon as you enter for that exam you just focus on your exam and when seated you just concentrate on doing your best on it.

cheating is cheating at the ned of the day
tbh if you think of cheating or have some intent in doing so its because you havent worked hard and are looking for a shortcut. Its not worth it trust me

Did you get called out during or right after the exam for cheating? Or were you notified far later?

I was wondering since this year they're doing predicted grades so we did multiple exams for evidence. I haven't cheated any of my exams apart from 1 question in a English language paper the creative writing. The answer I written for the question was from an article online but it wasn't word for word but if u look at it u can't tell that I got the idea from that article. Would that count as cheating and if yes would I get disqualified for all my other subjects if my paper get taken as a sample for inspection.
