  1. I guess I'd do nothing. I believe people are free to decide want they want for their lives - as long as they don't interfere with mine.
    Now, if Brazilian students get caught cheating on their exams, they'll probably flunk it. Some teachers would talk to them and investigate what led their students to cheat... Actually, teachers' reaction to it is quite unpredictable.

  2. If I saw a classmate cheating during an important English test, I would do nothing, because I don't care, if they are cheating, it is them to be troubled. And I want no part in that.

  3. I experienced this situation once when my high-school history teacher gave us a test. The friend that sat next to me cheated but he wasn't found out. At that time, I had no action to stop him. If I had an ability to come back to the past, I would prevent him from doing this. It would not be fair to others if his cheating accomplished. Moreover, he would be familiar with playing trick if he succeed in it many times.

  4. When my classmate is cheating, i'll advise him. if he doesn't hear, i still resume my work and don't care him. Cheating make him lazy to think, so it affects his studying badly. He doesn't listen what I said, and then he should study worse. It deserves to him.

  5. Once I took a course named history of Chinese drama.The teacher just 'read' the book in the class,which made students not interseted in the class at all and always absent.As a result,my classmates never reviewed and cheated together at final test.I did nothing at that time,even I shouted'Shame on you!'in my mind 100times.To be honest,I can't agree students treat that teacher is boring as an excuse to feel bored at studying.In my opinion,it's true that teachers should arouse students to find out intersets in class and no doubt that students should be responsible for their studying,too.In that class,what I saw was teachers and students didn't enjoy the class at all. What a frustrating experience!

  6. If I saw a person who is cheating during the test, I don't care, and I would ignore him. Cheating doesn't improve our skills.
    I saw some people cheating in a test, but I always ignored them and I have never cheated.

  7. I think even if I warned people who cheated during an important test that it is not for themselves, they might say that they didn't cheat.

    So We should get evidence of their cheating, and tell teachers.

  8. Maybe I won't do anything. In my opinion tests are for searching our knowledge in each topic. So if people want to do that, they can suit themselves. I don't care a bugger.

  9. If I saw a classmate cheating during an important English test, I might do nothing because I don't like to be involved them. If I say something to them, my teacher would thing in the wrong way and get angry to them and me.

  10. I'll do nothing if I see someone's cheating. Because she/he only will be in trouble, but it is her/his responsibility.

  17. If i found some of my classmates cheating. At first i will give them warning not to cheat because it will not gonna pay you and that ill just take you to one more step to your destruction. and if they didnt stop even then so i will call teacher and tell him or her that these students are cheating of each other and for sure that will not give any benefit. i will just do it for my friends sake and i really care about someone's life because life is a precious thing from god and you should not waste it like you never care about your life.

  19. I am not in te position to critize. i mean it's not my career that is on the table. a cheat fordide us to pass a concour for 5year so they are free to cheat if they want, i don't really care.
    but if i see someone i know doing so, i would feel very disappointed, but not say a word of it. personnaly i would think that he or she doesn't deserve his or her "concour" and i won't cheat 'cause i know i will feel guilty, so guilty to have troubled sleeping.. xD

  20. Well, I will prevent them from doing it. Truthfully, the purpose of going to school is to learn and applied it, what's the point if the students cheating on the examination. Wont it make them lying about their own ability?
