    i cheated a ton in middle school in high school. some essays i'd plagurize off the internet. half the time a paper was do or i had a presentation to do, i'd have my mom call into school sick. sometimes i'd chew up a cracker and spit it out on the toilet seat so it looked like i puked in the toilet and missed a little. i'd sometimes do things with my voice to make my throat really scratchy so the teacher'd believe me. i remember one time i had a powerpoint presentation due and it was taking wayyy too long to finish it so i went on clarisworks (sorta like word) and made a couple graphs, then jarbled them so it looked like some sort of computer glitch. i got to like the 4th slide of the presentation fine, then acted surprised when the images were unrecognizeable. totally worked. i never got caught.

    a buddy of mine wouldn't have passed high school if it wasn't for me finding him an essay on the internet.

    i haven't tried shit like that in college though.

    I fucked around alot and never paied attention so I knew once it was the end of the year I was fucked but this one teacher I had liked me alot so when i had a math final I told tell her i didnt understand anything and she did most of the math problems for me:DIf it wasnt for her I would of had to take the class over.
     
  3. god damn, if only that were possible to do nowadays. for most major essays the students at my school (and most likely other schools around here) are forced to hand in a hard copy to the teachers, and also have a copy submitted to an online site that checks for plagiarism. not only from websites, but it compares your essay to the essays of every other student taking the course.

    it's madness :eek:
     
  4. I've done that about 10 times with different kinds of computer assignements due over the years.

    Otherwise I have no reson to cheat, school is easy as hell.

    i have actually never cheated on anything.

    now i feel like a pussy.
     
  7. Plagiarism's a lot harder nowadays. But the upside is we can blame absolutely everything on computers. You can just say something didn't send, or the printers bust, or your files all got miraculously deleted by some unknown force of nature. Best one is if you just type a page full of symbols and pretend your files got corrupted.

    I cant recall ever cheating, not because of getting caught, but because of fairness. If i could go back, id cheat, get top grades and be like every other asshole who isnt qualified/smart enough to do what he does.

    forgot to mention: i wrote on my hand a few times. for math it was especially easy to cheat because you could slide an index card into your calculator with all the equations and shit like that on it.
     
  10. Oh, hell yeah. Forgot all about writing on hands. Also hiding notes in clothes, pencil cases, etc. I always wore a locket necklace and hid crib notes in it. Teachers never suspected a thing...fools.

    I wrote math equations on the back of an eraser for when I did an exam in grade 10. Turned out I was so slow at the stuff I actually knew that I never even got to questions involving those equations. I still passed math though. I also never wrote the test for unit 13 of grade 11 math...at the end of the semester, the teacher assumed he'd lost my test and that was why he didn't have the mark written down. He liked me for some reason and just left it out of my final mark without making me do the test again or anything.
    And lots of times, I've not handed in assignments and blamed it on computer problems. I'll tell the teacher I emailed them the assignment and for some reason, it didn't send properly. Or I'll send an email saying "here's my assignment" but without an attachment. That gives me enough time to actually finish what I need to do.
    I feel guilty when I do that though...but at least I don't ever plagiarize stuff.

    I cheated a decent amount.

    I would almost always copy the equations for math problems into my Ti and then access them during the test/quiz. I'd write stuff onto my arms(hands is dumb) and pull up my sleeve if I needed to see it. And I'd leave cheat sheets in my backpack then leave the flap open in a way that I could see it.

    I never got caught.

    four words, calculator programming.
     
  16. Also just remembered that my friend, in Spanish exams, because she had the worst handwriting ever just used to scribble in place of words she didn't know to make it look like she'd written something.
     
  17. Our English teacher in High School thought she was brilliant in making us write our essays in class. We had thirty minutes to finish and if we didn't, we'd have to hand it back in and we MIGHT get a chance the next day to finish. Yeah she might have forced us not to plagiarize, but novels were soo different. I never read a novel in my high school life. I always used GradeSaver.com All the questions the teacher asked were on that website and I just read a couple summaries, Q&A's and I got over 100% (including bonus questions) on my tests.

    She probably knew that I knew where she got her questions from...
