How many of you have cheated in any exam?

and on my hand in some cases.

Someone I know had a piece of paper hidden between their legs in an exam. He didn't get caught.

My extent of cheating is drawing a large penis on my calculator and trying to catch the attention of somebody sitting near me.

Yehhhhh, I wouldnt particularly own up to any of that when exam boards browse these forums...

Personally, Ive never cheated, and frown upon those who do. Genuinely, it annoys me that i have to revise until my brain is a fine pate and you can just write the answers down.

Probably not the best idea to post that on the internet (particularly a site which is likely to be monitored by exam boards), along with your name.

Nope, I never have! I don't want to risk being disqualified from anything and I'd rather know I've worked hard for the grade, rather than cheat for it. :p:

I've cheated on unimportant in-class exams but nothing else.
I get far too overawed by the whole exam process and just go all serious. It's pathetic really.

never, and even if i did i don't think i would be able to deal with the guilt because when results day comes up I'll know the grade isn't really mine.

Fellows from Cambridge University definitely do and one person was almost rejected from the university on the basis of sharing interview questions.

And that sounded drastic to me when I first heard it.

This is a brilliant source of student opinion, and so I wouldn't be surprised if it was browsed by some unexpected individuals.

I've actually never cheated. Never needed to. For stupid internal exams most people don't really bother anyway.

OR maybe they ARE one of the exam boards trying to trick people into telling them that they have cheated..

I personally wouldn't have the guts to cheat in an exam and knowing how clumsy I am it would be really obvious anyway

They do. There are board representatives for each board who look through the forums regularly. Its in the FAQ.

Ernesto, I suggest you justify this pretty quickly because this is a very serious matter.
