Hi, this might sound incredibly stupid and pathetic - but i wanted to check online so that i can have some advice.
Im taking May 2019 IB exams, and i think one of my friends might be planning on cheating.
Her cousin lives in singapore and is also doing M19 exams with similar subjects, and she's 'joked' to me several times that she's going to cheat (due to time zone things).
This cheating would in theory take place over WhatsApp or something.
Should i report this to my school?
My mum said i should leave it, as the IB would find out anyway (but i can't see how as its on a private message??)
Anyway, I'm also scared this could jeopardise my exams if she's found out

please please help

different timezones have different exams, to prevent cheating.
That's why if you look at the top of a past paper you would see written TZ0, TZ1, TZ2, etc , meaning different timezones. Therefore its impossible to cheat.

I know, we live in england so are time zone 2 (GMT) and singapore is also time zone 2, so like 8 hours ahead.
It is feasible to cheat via this which is why im concerned

There's nothing you can do
You have no proof that anything has or will happen
If she tells you that her cousin helped you cheat after, then it may be worth bringing up but not now
