A friend of mine (not close but i'd consider friends) just recently took her Textiles GCSE, except she was caught cheating. She took her piece of fabric with her to the bathroom to do in breaks and lunches etc. and I was just wondering what kind of penalties she'll get for this? She was distraught in the fact that she may be disqualified from multiple exams, but does anyone know the worst that could happen? She's been told she will (most likely) at least be disqualified from the Textiles GCSE.

She will most likely be disqualified from that particular exam. She will possibly be disqualified from the whole textiles GCSE.
I dont know about the other GCSE's though.

The rules are the same for all the different boards for GCSEs but their decisions may vary slightly. My best guess is that she'd get a U for her Textiles GCSE but be Ok to sit her others.

it depends on what the exam board will give her, in fact, she could be banned from all exams

Yeah, depends on how bad they see the cheating as. The worst possible scenario is her being disqualified from every exam she sits with that particular exam board.

The highest punishment is to be banned from taking GCSE and A level exams for a set period of time - it could be years - not just from one board for one exam season.

Well she'll almost defiantly be disqualified from Textiles GCSE and it's possible every other exams she has on that exam board the exam boards share information about cheating too so if they are feeling particually nasty she could be disqualified from all her GCSe's I hope it's not too bad.

I wonder what the outcome was?I bet looking back on the situation now,You all realise it’s not the end of the world and it’s actually quite meaningless.Far too much pressure is forced upon teenagers to decide what they want to do in life at school,They’ve only just finished primary school and two three years later you have to start thinking about what career you should have,You’ll be helpfully pushed towards the subjects that suit your school especially the ones that teachers decide are more academic at the time and will help the school hit the quotas for that years ofsted targets.Just enjoy your life,You only die once,YOU LIVE EVERY DAY X
