How many of you have cheated in an exam? Watch
But just from a curious prespective, if you really wanted to cheat, there are plenty of untapped and difficult to detect ways that people haven't thought of.
e.g. get a long-sleeve t-shirt printed with pattern on the sleeves, which to the naked eye is a random swirl of red and white, but through the red-filter contact lens you're wearing in your non-dominant eye, is pages worth of infromation. A la the red Cluedo magnifying glass.
Besides my school is very vigilant in enforcing its clean desk and hands policy so it would be nigh on impossible even if I wanted to.
Also, what is the point of writing stuff on your arm etc.? You don't know whats going to come up and writing out everything and deciphering that would take up too much precious time in the exams.
Besides, it's kind of embarrassing - the majority of people do well on their own merit and you have to cheat to even keep up? Sad.
how can they because people can easily put down somebody's name in their profile who goes to their college - theres no proof its the actual person online as the name on their profile.
If the investigation with me is anything to go by, they will make sure they have the right person before taking any further action. For example if the pupil's reaction to the letter is something like "What the hell is The Student Room? I have never heard of that username" etc. then chances are it is not them. Or that they could be lying. In which case I don't know what would happen as I had the honesty to own up, believing that what I had done was an honest mistake and that I had no intent of cheating.
But I would assume that depending on the severity of the alleged cheating, TSR maybe able to pass on the users IP address to be traced or even have their internet history searched. (I don't really know how far the law can be involved in exam cheating, I am just making a guess on what could happen if they really wanted to find out who you were).
Never. You're only cheating yourself, after all.
It is quite easy to cheat in exams though, noone checks anything
what if ocr isn't your exam board?
lol WELL that was just one of them that have signed up..
also sum1 said on this forum somebody was rejected from cambridge for posting interview questions up. i kinda did that but didnt think anything of it so hope it wasnt me!
oh and also sum1s fone went off in their pocket last week n ive heard the whole room can be DQed for that, any truth in it?
But I've never actually cheated in exams. It's never even occured to me, actually.
Writing down my fingers was my favourite, I could manage 4 decent abbreviated points on my left hand, just had to make sure I kept it on the desk when invigilators walked past.
A-Level I can't really because it's in too much detail to write on your hand.
EDIT: Science I cheated the hell out of, I could never remember the stupid equations and chemicals because we used to just mess around in class. cheating isn't bad at all tbh.
