your job, maybe? SEC really should have a stricter screening process

1% of students are caught cheating in your school but it obviously doesn't mean 1% of cheating students are caught in your school (that would mean all 300 cheat!)

This happened to me twice so far. I feel so stupid! Today in Irish during the aural I had to rush in and when I sat down I noticed it.

In fairness, that's not part of the job description.

The job entails signing students out, and escorting them to the bathroom.
Making tea isn't even a specified part of it.

Someone above said they do last minute revision in the exam centre : that should be reported to SEC because its not fair :
God knows what they could be writing on the exam sheets we may aswell bring in our own refil pads to the exam right across the country if their allowed write things down in the answer booklets

It's the schools that decide, not the SEC.

If you're left with some of your friends, it's hard to know what to do. It's easy to say that you would say it, but when it comes down to it, I actually don't know.

here do ye think you can get an exam cancelled if you write down C3 at the back page? A friend told me the corrector can cancel the whole paper. I done it for my second maths honours paper today saying ''C3 college'' on the last in the bottom corner. I really dont want to get it cancelled

I'm reading this with some amusement. However the SEC are watching these threads this year. The idle boasting and trolling whether true or not won't help anybody. I'm not an LC student but have memories of such. I do recall pre-internet what went on in the exam hall stayed in the exam hall.

An exception is that idiot saying prayers, if thats true - report him now not after he screws up someones exam. If not for you, for his own sake.

The examiner won't even bother trying to work out what your cryptic C3 college means.
Kind of a foolish thing to do though, don't you think?

Ah i just didnt want to be failed,as you may have heard higher level maths paper 1 went terrible and todays 2nd paper was ok and i didnt want to repeat next year so i just taught id hint it maybe a tiny bit of sympathy would pass me if i did barely fail. Should i check with my SEC supervisor or the schools designated head of exams just incase?

This thread is hilarious.

Cheating is easy for most people when the examiner doesn't walk around regulary or actually looks for signs of cheating...I was right up the front beside the examiner last year so that alone prevented me, along with literally cacking my pants if I was ever caught so I worked hard instead.

Also, I was one of those people that brought them to the toilet etc in TY and found that someone had tacked around 10 pages of notes to the back of door in one of the cubicles and then wrote my name + DO NOT REMOVE above in permanent marker..I lol'd..
