hey,

I had a test on Monday (which I ended up failing) but I could have cheated very easily and not got caught by looking at the person next to me's answer sheet.

What do you guys think of cheating if you know that you won't get caught?


EDIT: you studied but you just don't know the answer, and your sitting there in the exam and either you fail/do badly or you cheat

Actually knowing stuff will pay off eventually.
And what is more, there's been a bloody purple nose and some bloody purple clothes that were messing up the lobby floor. It's just apartment house rules so all you 'partment fools remember : one man's ceiling is another man's floor.

I cheated in my physics prelim, I had a sheet of paper with all the equations written on it that I tucked behind the test. Easy as. Oh, and I knew a guy who wrote his French essay in his French dictionary in pieces all over the book, and tore out the bits he had written and ate them.

Not really cause it's more likely that I'm correct instead whoever I'd have cheated off of.

I remember when I was really young, I had a wet dream in which i was being dragged along an urban countryside by a pickup truck.

Don't ask me I have no idea how the hell it happened.

You guys are pieces of garbage. If you don't want to learn, dont go to school. You are in school to learn so freaking learn the material and take the test. If you don't do go on the test look forward to the next one.

Oh yeah, as far as cheating in real life. Copying other peoples work is plagarism. They don't slap you on the wrist like at school. You will be sued. You will lose every thing that you have and get fired.

I guess it comes down to who you want to be. Do you want to better yourself by learning and improving your mind, or do you want to better the letter that the teacher writes on the page.

If you chose the latter, do us all a favor and drop out of school.

I don't care what anyone says, cheating in an exam is not condoned in my book. Cheating in exams is for losers. End of.

Mate, stop talking about yourself. A cheater is the lowest kind of being in existence. I fully agree with him - if you cheat, what are you doing in school? Do you think that in real life, the resolutions will just be handed to you? No - you do the work to your own credit rather than being pathetic to gain advantage that is not rightfully yours.

All I am saying is that it is completely contradictary to pay money to go to school in the pursuit of knowledge, and then cheat, and therefore forfeit the knowledge that you should have gained.

I am sorry that I am steamed about this, but I believe that education is a virture, and that if you have the opportunity to better yourself, you should do it.

Complacency is a dangerous thing for not only you, but everyone around you.

What if you are in a field where everything you do is uncharted territory. ie. fuel cell research. Then you can't cheat. Nobody knows the answers. In areas where your work is to the benifit of society, in uncharted areas, you have to know your stuff. Good luck cheating in those situations.

Happened too many times...

Therefore, I was just pointing out that the majority of the population do it, you have to live with it.

I cheated before, but only once. I felt bad ass because it was a hard ass test that I actually did study for and I could not understand it. Class was Advance Biology and its the hardest class that I have ever had. Its something that I actually don't really comprehend and get that well. In my school we have tablet pc's and how I cheated was just put in the question in google and went to the websites that described the answer. Was easy as fapping. But the majority of people do cheat, people don't like to admit it but if you can cheat with out getting caught then why not?

I kinda wish I had cheated, oh well, resit on tuesday, and I've got a big exam tomorrow which freaking out a big over. I can't stand failing another exam, I miss GCSE's/A-levels, so much easier than Uni.

I've even had to give up drinking 3 or 4 times per week and cut down to one. On the plus side I now have much more money, but whats the point if you can't spend it on alcohol...https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/newreply.php?do=newreply&p=16521703#

Someone else is more than likely to try and gain credit for your work though.

Cheat if you want. Don't feel bad about it. There is nothing to feel bad about. Just bare in mind that for exams that matter you won't be able to, so you need to learn stuff for them genuinely. Otherwise, cheat all you want.

Doesn't matter if you know you could do it if you tried. And there is nothing unethical about cheating on a test that means practically nothing, no one gets hurt.

The risk involved, I think, is far too great. Not only will you feel guilty (to some extent) but if you get caught for misconduct, you're potentially sabotaging your future as every employer will know.

One final comment, then I'm off to class.

The reason I don't like cheating is as follows:

I believe this world kinda sucks. I also believe that it is each one of our responsibilities to make it better. I feel that knowledge is our main path to improving the way things are.

Better communications
Alternative energies
Cheaper goods

I just feel like it is all of our responsibilities to improve the way things are, which means going against the flow. I just think we should all learn as much as we are capable of and apply that knowledge to improving the lives of those around us.

Thats all, sorry if I offended anyone.

its not really the honest thing to do, if you dont know the answer just guess.

although, if its just a silly pointless test then just cheat for the fun of it
