Essay on Copying in the Examination
Copying in examinations is a time-honored tradition among students around the world. While some may view it as cheating, others see it as a necessary survival tactic in the cutthroat world of academia. Regardless of your stance on the matter, there’s no denying that copying can lead to some hilariously absurd situations.
Let’s start with the obvious: the classic cheat sheet. Every student worth their salt has attempted to sneak in a cheat sheet at least once in their academic career. Whether it’s scribbling notes on your hand, hiding a piece of paper in your shoe, or taping an entire textbook under your desk, there’s always a way to cheat the system. Of course, the real challenge is not getting caught. Some students go to ridiculous lengths to avoid suspicion, like wearing a fake cast to hide their cheat sheet or creating a distraction by knocking over a water bottle. It’s hard not to admire their ingenuity, even if it’s at the expense of academic integrity.
Then there are the more high-tech methods of cheating, like using a hidden earpiece to receive answers from a partner outside the exam room or programming a calculator to display notes instead of numbers. It’s almost impressive how far students will go to avoid studying, but it’s also kind of sad. After all, if you’re going to put that much effort into cheating, you might as well just study the damn material.
Of course, not all copying is intentional. Sometimes, students simply don’t know the answer and resort to desperate measures. This can lead to some truly hilarious responses on exams. For example, one student might write “I have no idea” for every answer, while another might scribble a drawing of a unicorn instead of attempting to solve a math problem. It’s not exactly productive, but it is entertaining.
Then there are the students who copy so blatantly that it’s almost comical. Like the kid who just straight-up copies their neighbor’s entire exam, including their name and the date. Or the one who accidentally submits their friend’s test instead of their own, complete with their friend’s name and signature. You have to wonder what’s going through their heads in these moments. Are they really that brazen, or are they just not thinking at all?
Of course, copying in the examination isn’t always a laughing matter. In some cases, it can have serious consequences, like getting expelled or losing a scholarship. But at the end of the day, we’re all human, and we all make mistakes. So if you find yourself in a position where you’re tempted to cheat, just remember: laughter is the best medicine. And if all else fails, just draw a picture of a unicorn and hope for the best. 0 0 0.
