Would you? watch

Announcements

    Just been watching Eastenders during my revision (break). Would you have used the exam paper, or
    would you have cheated like Sonia?

    Or rather, I mean would you have refrained from cheating, like Sonia did.

    It'd be so hard not to cheat. So yeah I would. Sonia's a girl anyway, therefore she has morals.

    Would you?

    I wouldn't feel as good about my grade if I cheated, so I wouldn't

    I'd cheat enough to get myself a decent grade, but not ace it, partly so it didn't look too
    different to my normal results, but also because that way it wouldn't feel too much like cheating.
    But I'd tell my friends to revise the necessary topics with a big wink. But I certainly wouldn't
    feel guilty about it. Does that make me hideously amoral?

    I recently had a peice of assesed coursework to do, and it was damn hard, so I went to the lecturers
    web site to download some other sample questions to try, and it turned out he had the full answers
    to the assessed questons on there.

    So I could have a - ignored them and carried on working b - used them and got full marks c -
    reported them and who knows what might happen...he might have to send us all new questions
    or something

    I decided to ignor them and try to answer the questions without them, but failed miserably and ended
    up handing in nothing. Actually I tried looking at the answers to understand how to answer the
    question but that didn't help either.

    Looking back, I probably should have told the lecturer they were there, then he might have sent out
    easier questions or something

    We have a number of Russian students. With a few exceptions, the males see nothing wrong in
    cheating, which is clearly culturally acceptable (in their terms). I suppose my instinctive
    revulsion against cheating derives from some notion that a society made up of people who think
    cheating is OK is one where there will be significantly more corruption, nepotism and acceptance of
    the inevitability of criminal activity spilling into everyday life (as in Russia), which of course
    radically increases the chances that everyday life will become more tainted. I can't help feeling
    therefore that every one of you who cheats is grievously undermining the social trust which enables
    this society to work effectively (and especially if you justify it to yourselves on the grounds that
    everyone does it - or is a mug for not doing it).

    An associated argument is that it devalues the award you'll be getting. It's called Gresham's
    Law - bad money drives out good. In this case all A levels/degrees/driving tests are devalued if
    ppl cheat.

    If I find a stdent cheating I try my best to get them kicked off the dgree. Usually I fail, but
    occasionally I get a result. John

    Which is also wonderfully Darwinian and leaves you with the people who understand the course and the
    cheaters who are bright enough not to get caught. <g

    well I'd cheat my ass off, get top marks, and laugh at the fools who have to do work to get the

    No. Selling the answers for sexual favours makes you a bad person.

    that gives me an idea, print out some "leaked" gcse papers (past papers with the date changed lol
    they'll never know) and go take advantage of some yr 11s, would that make me a bad person?

    What does it matter. Cheating takes place in mnay exam around the world, in some countries they get
    away with it but in some they do not.

    Because if you cheat you devalue the award you're getting. Eventually the degree (whatever) becomes
    known as one which you can get by cheating so it becomes worthless.

    Second argument - people who cheat are tossers and become known as tossers..

    DAY. Everything they did, they will not be able to deny when they shall have to answer to God.
