The registrar of Nigeria's university entrance exams reported in May that almost 2,000 of the students had been caught in cheating scams. [Agence France-Presse, 6-1-07]
Okay, so that amused me just because I wonder how many of those 2000 are now sending emails out with important business matters.
Have you cheated in school?
I refuse to answer!
And Neighbours! I love this video.
Yes, I have. My friends & I were always conferring with each other when it came to assignments or in-class tests. But never actually in an official school board exam. The penalty for that is far too harsh to risk it — Having all your assignments, essays and classwork (in all courses) made void because you were caught cheating on one science exam.
(Or whatever exam.. really. Ooops!)
lol, was science the subject of choice?
Oui. (How did you find my LJ, by the way?)
I figured. :)
And I just found your poll, actually. I like polls, so I'll surf polls to find things to reply too, and if I'm lucky, i'll get to chat with the poll-creator too. :)
Maybe I'm missing something, but how? I want to surf polls. :P
lol! If you click on your poll, it'll give you a poll #. Then you, just put the next number up, and half of them will say you don't have access to the poll, but eventually you'll find some that are open and interesting enough to comment on. :)
Heh heh heh... Why didn't I think of that?
Oof! That's lame!
I only cheated once in all of my school career, and it was my senior year. I had mamor senioritis, and I HATED the teacher that took over for ours that took a leave of absence, and she assigned this just awful book, and I kept trying to read it, and I was getting more and more annoyed by it, and I borrowed one of my friends essays from previously that year, not realizing the substitute would have copies of previous classes essays.
We both got caught. *wince*
Didn't end up getting in too much trouble though, but definitely didn't get my 4.0. *snaps fingers* And got seeerious "I'm so dissapointed in you." statements. lol But I didn't ever do that again. Learned my lesson.
Yeah, but the British school system is harsh for cheating.
*nod* American depends on the school, and the circumstance, I think.
