I would never cheat, it's pointless...I'd rather get a D with my integrity still intact than an A that's tainted with guilt.

I can't imagine feeling guilty for something like cheating in an exam. I suppose I'm evil or something. But hey, I don't regard education highly.

Getting caught though... in year 5 I had a list of numbers for a multiplication test, and my teacher just suddenly took it off my desk, glared at me, and hated me for the rest of the year. Put me right off.

GCSE German controlled coursework, loads of people cheated by writing their essay on a small piece of paper which fit inside their dictionary

I didn't, in fact, i've never cheated in a real exam. I'm rather surprised so many have

How many of you have cheated in any exam?
and how did you do it?

I tend to write notes and formulas on my calculator for maths but thats about it

and on my hand in some cases.
well, i never cheated on a MAJOR exam, like the SAT or AP tests...but i did cheat regularly on english grammar tests....as a dyslexic, knowing when something is a predicate nominative vs. a whatever is not only torture, it's next to impossible :p:

so, count me in!

Does being dyslexic affect the processing of grammar? I thought it was mainly letter order, but I'm hardly well-informed.

I am surprised by the number of people who seem to think that cheating in an important exam is pointless. Of course there's a point to cheating!

Cheating is rife everywhere in the world. Cheating goes on in sports, business, and even politics. If cheating were pointless, it would not be so widespread.

The only time when there is no point in cheating is when you are doing a practice exam in order to test your own readiness.

letter order, grammatical order, number order, sound order when speaking...

there are many many ways dyslexia can manifest itself, those are just a few.

our exams officer told us some guy in another school during his exam took a photo of the paper, emailed it, then got the answers and then got caught. Talk about stupid

if the exam boards are reading this, i firmly believe that no one should be allowed to go to the toilets during an exam that is 1.5 hours long. so you either go to the toilet beforehand...or be suspected. unless they have diahorrea (i.e. a case where they can get longer time as they will be in the toilet for a long time) or a medical condition that requires them to be exemplified from that.

What about girls with very heavy periods? Doctors won't write notes for it, as they have no definate proof of it.

And a 1.5 hour exam plus all the bits before and after can get closer to 2 hours.

Just to clarify about exam board representatives browsing these forums, it DOES happen. And you CAN get caught (speaking from experience).
You may think "oh it's only a forum, no one would know who I am", with the right information in your profile, you can be traced. For example many of you have your school name for "Where you study", and maybe your name in your profile. All the exam board then need to do is send a letter to the school (as what happened to me) with your name. They will most probably know what course you may be cheating in (based on what/where you have posted) and that narrows it down to a few people who may have the same name doing your course. If your username is also a known nickname at your school then I suppose that can help to identify you.
So be careful what you write, it only takes a bit of info to identify you.

(Just in case you're wondering, I didn't strictly speaking cheat. Some leaked data files for an ICT exam were posted on here and I was involved in a discussion regarding the files and exam. The exam board wrote a letter to my school, with the information needed to identify me, and I had to provide a statement to the exam board. I was sh** scared of getting DQd)

Although I've never cheated, I have to say, this is a really good point.

Sure, prevalence of cheating suggests that there is some point to it, i.e. a motivation or motivations. That such a point exists doesn't make cheating right.

In answer to the question, never. Word of advice: If you do get away with cheating in exams, don't ever try cheating at work. I just wouldn't be comfortable working with people who take cheating so lightly.
