    Consider, 1 person did 2 exams ( 1 for himself and 1 for his friend ) and the individulators didnt find out and they got away with cheating.
    Lets say more or less on both papers there is exactly the same method for all answers.
    Lets also say it is a maths a level paper.

    You reckon you could get caught and get disqualified, or is it highly unlikely?

    I myself have not done this, and im just curious.
    Thanks

    Chances are they'd probably get away with it...then again if its identical (more or less) it might raise some suspicions...but how would they be able to do 2 papers at the same time? :confused:

    If an examiner was marking some papers, and there were two papers with exactly the same handwriting and very similar methods then yes I think they will become suspicious.

    Lol, thats why i said '' lets just say '' . I would assume though, that the first person would have finished like 30mins early and done the second or something.

    Can I please ask why you are wanting to know whether an examiner would become suspicious? First of all I don't understand how 1 person could complete two exam papers (yes yes I know this is a hypothetical scenario). But this person is also able to conceal his/her deception by writing completely differently in the second exam paper?

    You say this is a maths A level paper, yet give no reasons why this is the case.

    The only reasoning I could see (considering I do A level maths and am trying desperately to understand why you have presented this scenario), is that someone asked for an extra answer book in an exam and then completed the exam paper twice. Time wise I think this could be possible because I can complete A level maths papers in under half the time.

    In a nutshell, why?

    Look it's a simple question. Let's just say 2 papers had exactly identical answers but different handwriting, will the chances of being caught be high or low?
    I have not done this, i am just curious thats all.

    well I'd Say if it was different handwriting and no-one saw you you would prabably get away with it.
    And yes it is possible to do two papers in the time allowed,

    Dude its maths, the markers each have loads of paper to mark, and the methods are most likely more or less the same, so its highly unlikely theyll find out. I am definitely sure there would be someone out there who used the complete same methods as i did today for the C2 paper

    For maths yes, for a essay based subject you might not get away with it.
    But if someone's done this, you should definitely report it. It's not fair if you didn't.
