    each to their own.
    it doesnt affect you in all honesty, so dont let it.

    so you think that a few scribbled notes on your hand is better than actualy studying for the exams?

    i doubt shes not going to be taking your course place in all honesty ;)

    **** it.. loads of people cheatin in my school. they dont escort people to the toilets so ya can do whatever..

    i havnt cheated but so many people do it all the time


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,496 *Angel*


    It is annoying seeing cheaters when you know you've done the study and all, but tbh I couldn't be bothered with them.

    At least when we get a good grade we know it's because we earned it/deserved it, and that matters to me.

    Exactly f**k em.Its not worth becoming a very hated person for someone who isn't gonna gain **** anyways.They'll be found out eventually, in life


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,072 astec123


    What does it matter to you, if you can manage not to cheat at least you know you did it properly, if they need to cheat to get the grades that mentality will remain through their life so screw em in 10 years when they get their just deserts.


  • Registered Users Posts: 318 ✭✭ sock.rocker*


    what just deserts would that be? lol

    honestly, they're probably over the moon with themselves.. i kno i prob wud


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 144 ✭✭ Bright Smile


    i never would, as i say its none of my business, was just askin opinions on the whole subject really...i know ppl who really worked their asses off all yr cuz they werent that good at irish just to do honours, and although they got on fine, it killed me that yer wan swanned in with loadsa stair notes all over her hand! so tireddddd.....thanks Ro...maaaan!

    Once a cheater always a cheater sort of thing, when the come to needing to learn a new skill they will be hopeless. Lots of things could happen that will give them the return for cheating.


  • Registered Users Posts: 318 ✭✭ sock.rocker*


    yeah, really obvious.. same people go for 10 min toilet breaks every exam

    it wud be so handy for the business short questions


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 144 ✭✭ Bright Smile


    like the examiner-people guys are so lacksidasical bout the whole thing too in terms of checking ppl out! im not talking cavity search but she was blatently cheating....


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 385 ✭✭ John Player


    i etched the formulas into the cover of my calculator with my compas before hand hehe - good tip - this was back in 2001


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,894 ✭✭✭ mp3guy


    Probably got caught. And if you said anything, the examiner could say "why were you looking towards them in the exam in the first place" :rolleyes:


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 5,366 luckat


    I have to say that I can't understand why you can't bring reference books, stories, etc into exams. After all, if you haven't done the work, they're not going to help a lot! Whereas they're a useful reference for those who have.

    Let's see, this was the Irish exam? She probably had her whole vocabulary in Irish written on her palm, God love her!

    (Mind you, we're getting into larger areas here. It seems to me that it's really wrong to have an exam of such importance all in one week. What if you have your period, get the flu or have hay fever - or all three together, as happened to someone I know. I can't understand why there can't be an exam per month every month for the two years of the Leaving main course, with a chance to repeat as well. The whole thing seems so ritualistic and fetishistic and cruel, the way it is now.)

    life isnt about academics.. someone who may be brilliant at something might just be held back my school. ya cant say someone who is bad at school is bad at everythin

    whats that statistic? more millionaires in england without gcse's that with..


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,496 *Angel*


    It's so risky though, if you get caught, you won't have done your leaving, and it really helps to having a leaving cert.


  • Registered Users Posts: 318 ✭✭ sock.rocker*


    well in my school, theres no risk..

    i got out of ordinary early and was talkin to a guy in higher who actually needed to goto the toilet for a while.. its too easy

    Two of the supervisors in the centres beside me fell asleep yesterday :rolleyes:
    It's a load of ****e tbh.

    I disagree. I cheated a little for the Irish exam. I had alot of what I was going to say in my letter learned off but i just could`nt remember a sentance or two no matter how much I worked at it. So I just had a little piece of paper in my pocket and when I went to the toilet and looked at it again.

    I don`t think its something that`ll catch me out later in life in all fairness. I want to do Finance and I`m getting A`s in both Accounting and Economics because I`ve worked very hard at it and its fairly likely that I`ll get the points. Now if I did`nt get into college because of the min req of Irish I`d be bulling (Yes I`m doing pass maths, I`m that bad! hehe, but I got on grand in the test, it was fairy handy)

    Lets face it, if you have to cheat, its only to get that D3, because the amount of material you can have on your arm or whatever is limited. You can`t get a B or an A from cheating in an exam. Well not in a way I have figured out.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 91 ✭✭✭ sixdraw


    the supervisor in my centre is pretty strict.she came down checkin my bottle of water for any extra "ingredients" during maths but the guy next door couldn't give a sh*t. I was talking to an honours student aswell today in the toilets after i'd finished and he was on a break


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 331 ✭✭ ed6hellsfresh


    there is nothin wrong with cheatin now if you get away with it. truck all this crap about morals, i'm pretty sure if a little bit of cheatin has got you to your 1st choice you won't be cryin with guilt every night. just because you had the balls to do it you shouldn't be hated on.

    also prob shouoldn't be sayin you've got a's when you havent done the examz yet

    i believe the phrase 'dont count your eggs before they've hatched' comes from somewhere


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,496 *Angel*

    Well yeah I was talking about inside the hall with physical cheating notes, but yeah sure I was talking to others outside during a break.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,086 ✭✭✭ Beau

    Yeh your dead right. I meant in class all along through the 2 years.

    if you are a lad they can't stop you cheating in biology, that's if the male reproductive system comes up.

    go to bathroom look at your lad and then go back and draw it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,496 *Angel*


    Lol :d

    my examiners took our calculator covers, nasty bastards. I'd planned to sneak a few physics formulae in there.
