Do you think its better to Cheat than to Repeat?

What if you have an exam tomorrow then you cannot or you were not able to review today because maybe you have forgotten it, or maybe its a surprise exam or quiz? And what if that exam will be the only way to pass the subject cause your professor was not very active in terms of attending his/her class. These kind of situations are quite common during your college studies especially if you're on a public and open universities subsidized by the government. There are lots of these situations also in the different school and universities here in our country that every student become the victim of a non-professional lecturer or professors.

So you're on your last terms of class and you barely know what's the subject you are into because of the absence of your professor or just being given a self study task quite often and to your own surprise you're on your final exams the next day. Do you think its better to cheat than to repeat another year of that particular subject?

i am really strict about this one. You'll feel accomplished when you have worked hard for what you get. I feel accomplished if I have given all my effort than cheat and do shortcut. Okay, I'll get low scores. That's my fault.

The feeling of having high grades because of hard work is nothing that can be put into words. One also has to consider that if he only depends on cheating, the future consequence will be awful because then in the real workplace, how will he know what to do?

The effort to get good grades for our own merits is an inexplicable thing. It's a feeling of satisfaction that gets complicated to explain just by using words.

Cheating can solve a momentary problem, but it won't get you far.

You're right. Getting low score is better than getting high score by means of cheating. It is better to feel failure than to feel achievement that you don't deserved or you never worked for. During my college days, one of my professor have a rule that when one get caught cheating, it will be an automatic failed grade. I think it is an effective rule because no one ever attemp to cheat during exam.

That's great. Professors like that are really serious about your education. You'd feel that you have paid enough and is not wasted.

Some students may feel like what your professor was doing was only a bother, but he/she was only thinking of what's best for them. In my university, if you're caught cheating, you'll be kicked out.

People think differently but we should always learn from the elders. LOL. But what your school's policy is really serious isn't it? For sure students are afraid to do it or have them caught.

I can say that I'm in the same boat as you pandooh and anor0428.

Low grades are actually very frustrating, but something more frustrating is knowing that high grades were achieved through cheating (it's an empty effort).




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Yeah, so true. What will be the meaning of paying the bills to the school if you're just gonna do that? I would say it would be better to repeat. LOL

I have to say that the idea is not so cool, but it's necessary if you really have bad grades. But unfortunately, it's very difficult for most people to think like us. I think we can be considered as exceptions, haha!

HAHA Indeed, we do! If only grades can also measure up the determination, perseverance, and honesty that people (like us?lol) have we would sure ace it. LOL

Of course cheating can be a tempting path depending on our needs, but getting things on our own merits is always better. So, let's stay focused on walking on the right side.

Have you ever realized friend that whats teacher teaching to us have no use in our future jobs? In this case i can say that it is better to cheat than to repeat cause repeating will cost you money again and again and we must think about sacrifices of our parents. Yes i know cheating is bad and you must use this in something similar like a white lies meaning. Remember that we must not cheat all the time, only a little if it is needed.

I completely agree with you on this, and I'm happy that someone else shares my perspective. For me this applies to all wakes of life. The feeling of accomplishment only comes along with the hard work you've put in, otherwise without it you just feel empty. Heck this even applies to video games for me. A lot of my friends enjoy putting in cheat codes and just blasting through a game by cheating. I don't see the point in this. There is no challenge, there is no feeling of achieving something. My self-worth goes down if I cheat at anything.

I enjoy doing things the right way and doesn't bother what the outcome will be as long as I do things the way my heart will feel relaxed at the end.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

DenisP

I feel exactly this way as well, my friend. A lot of people place far too much emphasis on an outcome and not nearly enough on how they get there.

It's not to say that the outcome isn't important, of course it is. However, sometimes what you gain doesn't feel nearly as good as it could, depending on how you've earned.

For example, say you did something dishonest to make a lot of money quickly. All the money in the world isn't worth anything to me if I can't sleep at night because my conscience is telling me "You don't deserve this."

Honest, hard work is the way to go.

Same here because I also believe that it is more better and you feel more happier if your success are coming from your own hardwork rather than the hardwork of others.

Realizing that our success came from what we've done and not from any cheat means will make us feel contented and proud of our achievements. This is why I enjoy doing things the right way.

It's good to work within the principle of being right because going about a serious course in the wrong way and cheating one's ways through it will definitely have a serious repercussions. Take for instance, if it's a medical course and one cheats his or her way to pass it, who would suffer the consequences?




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

treecko142

definitely, not everything in life has a shortcut and sometimes you really have to take responsibility for your mistakes. Cheating and going the easy way out will develop a bad habit on you which will eventually hurt you in the future (assuming you get away with the cheating).

I think cheating is relative. It's bad if you cheat on a test about a subject that it's important to your career or the topic of the exam is important to another subject but if the subject is irrelevant for your career, cheating is a good idea because you don't need to learn about a subject that you don't care and it would not affect the future of your career.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

SirenOnFire

I agree with you. I guess this can be done if you have stressed out all your options and just can't understand the subject enough to be able to pass it on your own. I have done this back when I was in school but it's pretty useless passing a subject if you didn't get the knowledge you needed to acquire in it. Some just depend on cheating and that is plain stupid. In the real workplace, you can't depend on no else but yourself and this is where the stuff you learned back in school will have to be applied.

I agree. I have cheated on some things that were tedious or unnecessary, but only if the format was the problem and not the content. If there was something important to my job that I needed to show mastery of, I wouldn't be comfortable with cheating my way through.

I think It depends on the situation I usually cheat on my minor subject because k don't really focus minor subjects in college I am more on focusing major subjects I believe major subjects is one of the tools I need to succeed in my course and I don't cheat on my major o take risk if I don't know that answer I just leave it blank. Its just my principle I don't like cheating on major subjects because it will greatly affect my future if I cheat in major subjects.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Tronia

I guess I agree with you even though that I haven't cheated myself. But I don't mind if others do it. It's always your own personal choice and I doubt that every single subject that you have in your studies is extremely relevant for your future. Therefore, you're fine with cheating on smaller, less important subjects as long as you do study for the major ones.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

SirenOnFire

Major subjects are integral part of our future as professionals and passing them just because of cheating is basically stupid and nonsense. What's worse is if one is used in cheating and he has to pass the board exam or state board after college. This time, to whom will he cheat?




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

felabruno

Cheating can get you expelled. It is not worth the risk. If the exam is a surprise thing then it's nothing unusual many students will be unprepared. If you knew about the exam then you had to study for it. Forgetting about an exam is very immature.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

SirenOnFire

Not studying and resorting to cheating is both immature and irresponsible. Exams is like an everyday part of life especially in college so students have to be prepared with these every single day and study every single night.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Not that I'm in support of some lazy lecturers who wouldn't attend classes and still have the guts to set tough exam questions, but as a student who is responsible, once the new semester resumes, it's in the students best interest to get the scheme of work and read ahead of the lecturer. In this case, should the exam or test comes up all of a sudden, you wouldn't be too surprised or left with an empty skull.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Tronia

It depends... how good are you at cheating? Do you think its better to Cheat than to Repeat? For example, I honestly didn't cheat on a single exam, even though the university and I had plenty of opportunities. I just don't feel comfortable doing it and I think that if I'd try, I would get caught because I haven't done it before. But if you have been cheating for years then you know how to do it very well. I had so many classmates that never studied and only did cheat sheets but how will this help them later on when they will be looking for work and won't know anything about different things? We should always think about the long run.

I believe that it's better to review and review until you passed the test. If you cheat and then you pass, later on in life, you'll regret that you didn't study hard and you can't apply it to your job or whatever it is. I did cheat before, on my test but now I'm regretting it to not studying hard. Do your best to study because, at the end of the day, it's for your own sake.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

anor0428

Very well said. It will be useless to pass exams by cheating because later it will screw you up. One must be responsible to be prepared on tests. If he doesn't, then he should be ready for the results of not studying before the exam. It is not always easy to pass, and take that reason to double the effort to study hard.

Keibah2

This is really funny. I have never cheated because I always get scared that I might be caught, even when I haven't studied well I just write what I feel is the answer and let it go.

A lot of people cheat when they haven't studied because they can't see themselves repeating, because that would mean extra fees, seeing your mates ahead of you and being ashamed. Nobody wants that so they go ahead and cheat.

I feel like, major or minor, I have to study for all my courses. It's the best way to go and it surely pays.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

SirenOnFire

I agree that the hard work and patience we invest in studying really do pay off. When I used to cheat back in college, I was so afraid of being caught because the consequence is something that I can't think of. I only do it in minor subjects, but regardless, it should never be done and being kicked out of the university is just not worth it.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

anor0428

Exactly the point.

"A lot of people cheat when they haven't studied"

That is the main reason why some are temped to cheat beacuse they know that there is a big chance for them to fail the test. But if we studied the lesson, then we can be confident enough to pass the test.

Nikko25

Well it kinda depends on what kind of cheating you are talking about. If it's just friends or classmates who are willingly copying and sharing answers with each other, then I don't see anything wrong with it. As long as no one is being forced or being cheated off unaware, I don't think it is something that people should make a big deal about. I mean, almost every student has done this at least once before and from my experience, it can help them get closer to each other.

Now if it's cheating that's at the hokage level like breaking and hacking into your school system just to get answers, then that's just criminal.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Barida

I get your point of view, but I think there is need for students to study hard and get prepared for exams instead of trying to copy others during the examination period. I found that as not just to others in the same examination hall that studied quite hard for the exam.

Cheating is absolutely never an option. For one thing, you really don't learn the material you were assigned, and this can come back to haunt you later. I've seen that happen to people before, and it is pretty rough. Second of all, cheating is unethical, and it is entirely disrespectful to the people who structured the course and to the students who found a way, no matter what, to be responsible and to study the material and get what grade they could, honestly, for better or worse. I have no trust for cheaters, and I think that people who cheat undermine the idea of learning in the first place.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

SirenOnFire

I totally agree with you. Unfortunately, back when I was in college and as embarrassing as it may seem, when push comes to shove I gave in to cheating. It should never be done though because others just depend on this, and the idea on having exams is to check what if the learning has been enough and to push students to study.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

JoeMilford

I admire you for having the courage to admit that you did this in such a public forum. I guess my fear is that this type of dishonesty will start to permeate every other aspect of one's life. If you cheat and get away with it, and you are successful at it, doesn't that make you think you can lie and steal, and it is profitable? I just can't live my life that way, you know?




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

SirenOnFire

It was all in the past so I feel like there is nothing that I should be really be embarrassed about. If people learn from my experience, it will be worth it. I hated doing it, and especially for the fact that I was obsessed in having high grades, having it just because of cheating was awful. I graduated from university because I sacrificed much of my sleep and time with my family and friends for studying. I passed all exams needed to have a licensed practitioner because I studies my ass off.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

JoeMilford

You made another really great point here! You can not be proud or feel ownership for your accomplishments if you get a good grade or high score for cheating. Your grades mean nothing because you cheated, and your degrees, ultimately, will be false in their frames hanging in your home or office. They will be permanent documentation of one's lies forever.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

There is no real pride in achieving success because of other's hard work. Eventually, if all that was done was cheating, it would all catch up and ruin ones' future.

Cheating on a test or two is not something I'd endorse? But I don't think much harm can come of it. Now cheating on big tests or most of them is problematic. Remember, whatever you learn now will need to be implemented in future education or job. It would look bad and quite frankly, embarrassing if you didn't know your stuff.

In my opinion, there is a win-win solution for that situation. You can pass without cheating. I have a friend who had the same experience. The worst part is it's a major subject. Her professor barely attend the class and teach them. He will just enter the class for a surprise chapter test, then that's the time he will teach. My friend always prepares for all her subjects, whether it's a major or a minor subject. It's better to always study in advance than cheat just for you to pass. Repeating the subject will only reflect in your records, which will somehow affect your job application later on. Companies do background checks on it. Cheating is definitely not an option as well. You may get caught. If not, then you will surely pay for it in the future. The best thing to do is to prepare by doing an advance study like what my friend did. Ask for help too. You may approach someone who has the knowledge about the subject while you do your self study. My friend passed the subject that way. Whether your professor teaches very well or not, what you learn from school is just 10% of the things you will do in an actual job. Companies know about it so they provide trainings for fresh graduates. You will learn more about the subject you studied by yourself once you landed on a job. Just pass your subject without cheating by doing your responsibility to prepare all the time.

I think this is more of ethics and the survival question. Some may think that survival in the career counts and may ignore this. Some may choose this as more of the cheating as part of unethical thing. And they may not want others to do the same. So it comes down to how the people are approaching this problem. I personally think that for each one of us things are going to be lot different. And it's often left to the person to leave it to the individual and we can't decide things globally for every one of us.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

JoeMilford

I hear what you are saying here, but it does not change the fact that cheating is unethical under ANY circumstances. This forum thread is really tripping me out because so many people seem to condone cheating as an option. This worries me. I have children, and I try to teach them to be honest and not to lie about things. I don't teach them that "sometimes", under "certain circumstances", that cheating and cutting corners or misleading others is okay. You know?




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

That's true the reason being most of the people who favored cheating are into system where you either cheat or let system rile over you. And the thing is that system is so messed up outside first world countries. That most of the countries outside first world nations, survive purely on cheating. That's more or less a survival weapon of the people. And so they favored it. It's not right but if it comes to survival would you not choose it? That's where it all comes down to.

For me it is better to just repeat it that to cheat with that because in the future what you do will be going back to you. So just be ready and prepare as soon as possible because when you do mistakes you cant return it back and it may become the reason for your own fall.

In my case i don't usually cheat if i fail then that might be the result of not studying or simply not understanding the whole thing. I believe cheating might become a habit if you keep doing it, but like what they said it depends on the situation and reasons.

I would have just gotten an honest zero than get something that you aren't deserving. And this will serve for me as a lesson that I must do a lot of work and do my best to review and to cope up with it.

I think honesty does not pay for the long term. And another thing is that cheating has it;s set of the limits. So people have to understand where they are heading. And they need to see where they can be good in many ways. I have learned that sometimes people cheat at the right time. And it works out for them. But it does not makes everyone that strong. Sooner or later karma catches up.

This question made me laugh but choosing to the option really matters. Nowadays we must be practical on all our decision just like in doing something. I know this relates to school life and my opinion would be yes it is better to cheat than to repeat but everything bad deeds has disadvantages and consequences. The worst disadvantage is you will not gain any knowledge from things you just copied and may affect you future status in life. You can copy but not frequently you must work hard because it is for your own sake.

Its not ok but if you really have to do this you have no choice. Its a bad thing to cheat but some people do that even if they dont want to. But some people do this because they really want and they dont pay attention to their study. Cheating is not a good thing but its deoend on your situation.

Although I think it all depends on the situation you are in, cheating is not my thing.

Honestly, I prefer to keep low grades and have to repeat because I know that in that way, when I get high grades they will be by merit and not by any other means (which particularly means a lot to me).

For me, sometimes it's better to cheat done to repeat. Repeating anything is hard. Because of the time you wasted in taking up subjects or anything. But also sometimes, it is better to repeat to correct mistakes you did before.

Judas2018

Repeating can become embarrassing after awhile though. You're bound to be judged or chatted about. I think what gets lost in all of this is rather than cheating, how about asking for help with whatever you're having trouble with? Even if you need help often, it'll be worth it when you finally 'do' get it... and can perform the tasks required of you yourself.

Cheating is no justification no matter how 'just' it may seem. The circumstances, no matter how unfair they may seem it is just one's bad luck that they are placed in that situation and would have no other alternative but face the consequences.

Cheating is a big no no for me. If you start cheating at a little thing like a pop quiz, then eventually you will be cheating on big and important ones. And is like you loose respect on others, because you think that they are silly, when you are cheating on them, when the silly one is not other but you. Also, I had the chance to see how my partners at school and college, were caught while cheating on a test, and that was sad... teacher felt so disappointed!

Both are never for me because in life there are things we can totally avoid and anything that would cause me embarrassment I totally avoid them.Failing and repeating a class is one of them.I have never repeated a class.

But for this discussion, I think repeating would be better for me than cheating.I don't like cheats and I wouldn't indulge in it.

Cheating is very unethical and not something that I will ever resort too. I prefer to succeed as a result of my hard work no matter how much I have to struggle for that. We cannot solely rely on our teachers. Nowadays we have the internet and there are so many resources available. Students nowadays are really lucky. They can get help from anyone across the globe. Nothing is impossible. You need to believe in yourself. I strongly believe that failure makes someone stronger. Failures are just learning experiences. You don't need to be discouraged by failures. Each time you fail just get up and fight again. One day or the other you will have to succeed.

That´s a great question that almost every student faced or will in the future. In my humble opinion, life doesn´t is not about school exams and gos on regardless of education-results. Therefore I think that the cheating that you suggested is better as putting the same thing off for another year would be a waste of time. Although it is unfair to others who have prepared it is a way how to continue the studies. Even on the other hand, if you don´t pass for the first time you wil have to do so anyway so why to waste 1 whole year?

Cheating is not a good idea; it is not worth it to cheat just to passyour exam. College life is usually like that professor is sometimes absent or
will just give topic to read then next day you will have surprise quiz . As a college student you should be ready and prepare any time for surprise exam/ quiz just study advance in your lecture. If you cheat you will pass but you will never learn.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

I totally agree with you. College is really different, it is not an easy field. You have to put more effort to study because of some of the professors just give topic, then it is up to you to study the lesson. I also encountered some proffessor that will only give brief discussion and the rest will fall to the students to report. Mostly, they give surprise test, so it is not new.

Cheating is not right, life is more than just passing your school exams. There are cases where senior members of the society carriers are ended when they are discovered they never graduated or they used fake papers in their school and college days. The guilt will eat you up the rest of your life if you remember what you did especially if you chated.

I will advise that you forfeit and retake the exams instead of having to cheat. I won't allow my kids cheat at the exams, so I am advising you not to cheat as well.

For the most part, I don't condone cheating of any kind, in any field in life. Honesty is the best policy, and it is the only way that you'll get a good night's sleep in the end. Maybe not literally, but life is easier when you live with a clear conscience.

But I also do realize that there are situations where it might be acceptable, even if those situations are quite rare. I think the only circumstance where you could cheat would be if you're aiming for a field where your lack of knowledge isn't going to cause anyone harm. Do you plan on cheating on an engineering or medical exam? Don't ever even think about it. If you don't know your material, you're going to cause the collapse of a building or harm to a patient. Take the fail, and try again.

However, if you're cheating on something where other's lives aren't in the mix, say a degree in Graphic Design, if you really feel the urge to cheat then go ahead, but know that you're harming yourself in the act. At least no one else in the danger, and the worst that can happen is you don't have the skills to satisfy a client.

In the end, it is always best to just be on top of everything and know your material.

I support this idea yes. Mainly because when it comes to school and university they don't teach you to work at all. So the tests are just a way for the school to have grounds to approve you. WIth that in mind, you can cheat but know that the type of professional you will be will depend on your skills and interest to learn alone




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

anor0428

No. Passing on a test through cheating is not worth it. Just think about how our parents would feel if they find out that we cheated to pass. It would be a big disappointment to them. They are doing their best to support our study, and in return we should do our best too to atleast give them decent grades that we really worked for.

Off course its better to cheat in this situation. What were you expecting..to say repeat?

A lot of people will play the saint and say it's better to repeat. Well, i think differently than most people do, but that doesn't mean I encourage cheating.

As bad as cheating might seem with all its demirits, there's still one good part of it. It brushes up what little knowledge you had on the subject which makes it even better in terms of understanding.

Of course NOT! I indicated an exclamation point to make known my vindictive answer to the question. I don't like that saying that it is better to cheat than to repeat. Because we are responsible in all our actions and decisions. We may pass an exam or a test in life or school but eventually you will learn that it is so much satisfying to pass by your own hardwork and determination. Honesty is still best.

I strongly agree with these things, because when ever we do something honestly in exam, we tend to improve ourselves in meaningful way unless it will be in desperate situation that cheat is option, but not recommended. Team work is necessary when it comes about creating thesis, and it is not considered cheating, because it is a legal way to help one another. But in the manner of personal exam, cheating is not good idea, because you will not teach your brain to bring out the best in you, the potential.

The only things that, the cheating is not good, for the purpose that a person will bring honesty about himself. Most cases happens when a person live in dishonest life will bring his habit to his works. That is the time when person could no longer recognize basic truth around his environment.

For me it better to fail than to cheat. I am not a good in studying I actually hate it but if your going to thing about it all you didn't learn anything. Yes, let say you passed but have you learned anything? those knowledge can be used in he future and can help you build your career in the future. Help yourself to not think things quotes like that because it can cause you your future.

You should start preparing to take exams instead getting cheat. Because in my experienced, you might cheat to the exam, but you will carry such habit until you will grow adult, and you will not realize the difference between right and wrong. Another factor of it is not learning yourself in honest way, in the sense that when you encounter a problem instead you answer to yourself, you might miss the important thing to improve by yourself.

You will not accomplish anything when you do it. Though cheating is fun, I do it a lot of times when I was high school and elementary, I regret taking it in honest way, because up until now, I feel I don't have any improvement about myself, and I feel I miss a lot of things doing by my own self to solve problems. In the same manner, prefer to make it in easy way sometimes refers to it, but not necessarily.

Well, it depends on the person in question, because it all boils to ethics and believe. Some person believe that it's better to fail and fail with honour, than to pass and pass with shame. And that's if you don't even get got, because that would worsen the whole scenario.
But for me, I would cheat, if I'm in a situation in which I can have my way, and knowing if I do other wise, that I will fail, then without lying to myself I will cheat and pass.

Surprises really happens to those who are not prepared. But in the case of exams or quizzes, I think having a professor who doesn't really teach is not an alibi not learn your subjects in your own. If you're going to study great people they just don't wait for someone to tell them to study. They have the initiative to start learning what they want to know. Cheating is unethical and you might carry it until your work in the future. Not having the initiative to learn your lessons because of irresponsible professor will also make you irresponsible for your education.

It all depends on the person. Some people are a lot more comfortable with cheating whilst others will feel extremely guilty for a long while so it is definitely not good to cheat for them. It's always better to try and do an exam honestly so that you truly know whether you are good at the subject or whether you need some more work. There is no point in cheating to be honest because it doesn't help you in any way other than to pass a class.

Let me ask you a question first?
What is your primary motive of education? Do you just want good grades but no knowledge or poor grades but good knowledge. People may frown upon when they see poor grades, however, you will ultimately succeed if you have good knowledge. If you have good grades but no knowledge, you will ultimately fail.
I think it is better to repeat instead of cheating.

.I would love to do things the'right' way. However, I don't think that the world really works like that. Most
of us were taught by our parents that the honest and hardworking always come
out on top. In this situation, they would advise that we repeat. They
lied.

In myopinion, you need to find out how things work and get with the system. If it
means cheating so be it. Just don't get caught. I live in a country where
everything is corrupt. I mean everything, Even the dogs, and cats. If you try
to work hard or do the right thing, your only wasting your time.

In fact ifyou were in my country we really wouldn't be talking about you repeating. We
would be talking about how you can buy the exam. So for me cheating it is

I personally think that it is always better to repeat than cheat. By cheating we will get only temporary success and happiness, and there is no satisfaction. On the other hand, if we prefer repeating the thing in a honest way we can definitely succeed one day, which is a permanent thing.

Last but not least, honesty gives a lot of satisfication.

I really don't want to repeat but I also don't want to cheat not because I'm afraid to be caught or someone will backbite me and report me to the teacher and be punished but because it's not the right thing to do just to pass any examination. When I was still a student, I always see to it that I'll give time to review before examination week so that my mind will be refreshed of our lessons and I will not be tempted to cheat when I can't answer the question in the test paper. I really tried my best to study hard even if I did not really excel academically, at least, I am learning.

No. I don't think so. Fulfilling or completing something that you didn't work for is something isn't very satisfying. Achieving things through cheating is not a very good thing to do.

It's better to cheat if you do need that degree desperately, cause it dosen't matter if you earn it or not, they don't teach anything worthwhile anyway. the real education begins when you finish studies actually.

It depends on the person whether he or she found this behavior as ethical or not, because it is a do or die situation for her or him so there is a natural tendency that this particular person will look for answers that he or she don't know. There is a thing called Machiavellianism, if this person is a high mach than he or she would most likely cheat in that exam because they will do anything just to finish anything no matter what, whether it is good or bad but if i were in that position I think I will cheat than to repeat for I am a scholar and to repeat is probably the worst nightmare that I will encounter for i will loss my scholarship. Well God bless and thank you everyone.

Well as a college student. I think it depends on what situation you are into. It is okay to cheat sometimes but you must be aware that your actions was wrong. You must be able to learn from that mistakes and be aware not to do it again in order to have knowledge without the help of the others.

If I'd say I didn't cheat, I'll be a hypocrite. Even the current President of the Philippines cheated many times from his elementary days until College. I think it's part of growing up, and as long as you did it in a minimal frequency, you can't be tagged like a criminal or remove your rights to education. But Cheating to some extent must be known by all. Cheating in school is far different from cheating at work. You can be administratively terminated from your job which is something you had not experienced as a student.

Sorry, no cheating at all. Whatsoever.

Cheating never works out in the long run. It's like digging a hole in the ground. Now to cover up that hole, you need to dig another hole to get the earth to cover up the first hole. The strange thing is that somehow, you need to dig a bigger hole to get enough earth to cover up the first hole. And to keep on covering up the holes, you keep on digging bigger and bigger holes.

Same with cheating. It's lying, And to cover up that first lie, you have to tell a bigger lie. And the lies have to get bigger and bigger. Until you are finally exposed. So, no way, no cheating.

I'd say that it's better to repeat because failing is not that negative. When you fail, it actually shows that you are learning whereas when you cheat, you're just going one step ahead with empty hands. We are already taught this in school and believe it or not, it will be used in working.

As much as you would like to do things the 'right way' where does that really get you? How far do people that do things by the book get? An example is the Us election. The current president Donald Trump is said to have gotten to the presidency by using propaganda especially on social media aided by the Russian's.

We all have read his tweets and listened to his speeches. Without 'cheating' so to speak would he have gotten to where he is. He manipulated the system.He lost the popular vote.

I'd like to take the high road but I'm afraid in this world you need to learn how the game is played and play it. Good people finish last.

It is better to write whatever you know. You can chose to postpone doing the exam if that is possible in your school and come back and do it when others are sitting for it. I am so against cheating but you can chose to cheat on a personal level. I also do not encourage repeating.

I like the way you defined the whole cheating thing in a manner of choice. Cheating to some people isn't a choice. It's just an easy way out. Asides that, I think I agree with the rest of your post.

It is a hard lesson to learn, and some people never learn it. But, a person who takes shortcuts will always lose in the end. It may not be today, next month, or next year. However, that behavior does and will catch up with you. And, the longer it takes to blow up, the bigging the explosion.

I really think it's better to cheat than to repeat. Cheating is a talent. At least, in my opinion. If you ever think about cheating you first, need to be good at it, like don't let yourself caught. I actually learned cheating when I was I in high school. It's important that you don't do the cheating regularly. And always review after taking the test you cheated on. You don't want to be chill because there might be a retake or something. If that is the only way for you to finish school, then why not? But please, don't get caught and tell no one about it.

I cheated on exams a few times in my life, I am not saying it's the best alternative but I managed to do it for subjects that are not so important and that wouldn't be a great help in the future. For the most important subjects I always tried to study and actually learn something because my future depended on the knowledge I was acumulating, but then there are some subjects that are boring and not helpful at all and I prefered cheating rather than wasting my time when I could use that time to study a subject that interested me. So yes, in some cases, cheating is better than repeating.

I couldn't really cheat during my college days in our major exams because there's always a watcher in our room so I was really afraid to get caught I'd rather get low scores than to be expelled and won't be able to graduate at all. But I'm not saying that I didn't experience cheating of course I did I was just like any ordinary students who tempted to cheat especially if I didn't study for the quizzes or exams. If you're on the verge of choosing to cheat because you really need to graduate or need to maintain your grades for scholarships it's your own choice but don't expect that you really deserve it, don't be so pompous about it that you finally made it, don't make it a habit to always cheat especially if you're already working because you'll never know what goes around comes around so it's enough that you've done it during your college days and make sure it won't happen again

Cheating is not fair from the others students, besides this will bring nothing good to you. You must repeat over and over again, what you learn now it will be very useful in the future.

Never, you won't learn anything if you cheat, if you get caught you can be outright expelled or forever be branded as a cheater, and it just won't get you anywhere in life if you are dependent on cheating. If you're at the point where you have to consider cheating in order to not repeat, then you have already missed the point of studying beforehand and working hard before you get to that point of no return where the best option is to cheat.

When you cheat, yes you pass but you don't know anything in the exam, you did not learn at all and in the long run, it's totally your loss. You will reach the time that you'll regret that you're only cheating when you're in college, you did not perform well and you're not studying or helping your self at all. It's your loss especially when if you will be working in the future about the same field that you've studied but in the example that you've provided, I would say I'm going to cheat so that I can pass. I will just recover about the misses or the topic that I don't know after I pass. It'll be hard if you'll repeat again. I know it's hard since I already tried it before when I'm in college since I'm a happy go lucky person before. All I want to do is to play video games, drink with my friends, etc.

Honestly, I don't like cheating. One reason is my pride and it's really hard to cheat depending if you're professor is strict and he's watching the class always. There are instance that my professor took a picture of my classmate when cheating. It's funny and it's sad as I think he was not able to continue with the exam. You need to give a time with your study as someday, you'll bear the fruit and all the blessings will be upon you. Just study, don't cheat, be good.

Its true that these scenarios are very common and mostly we fall for the cheating option comforting ourselves that it is just once and no repeat of the same. It is important to note that whatever actions we engage in today be it good or bad, the effects will always reflect in future, and whatever we do will most likely be done to us. It better to repeat than do a simple cheating then reap a magnified consequence in future. You cheat the professor, your children cheat on you, or even your own wife, or employee does the same cheating on you. at this point you wont see it as a small thing, it will hurt you more than it may have done to the professor. It's always good to reap where you sow, this will give you a sense of fulfillment. As much as cheating in schools is the norm, it always yields negative consequences in life, thus it is up to you to choose your fate...
