Cheating can be a serious problem in school and one many struggle with, whether you are on the receiving end of someone trying to cheat off your paper/exam, or trying to cheat yourself. In recognizing the latter, trying to cheat, it’s important to try identifying what led you to this act of deceit and desperation because ultimately you will probably get caught. You are also not learning anything and that will eventually catch up with you as well. So, it’s crucial to determine what brought you to this point and how you can redeem the situation.

First of all, is the class simply too hard for you and you need to switch out or go down a level? This could be a simple solution of speaking with your advisor or teacher in helping discover what it is you need. Maybe Spanish is not the foreign language for you but Latin is a much better fit. Maybe Advanced Algebra is too difficult for you now and you need to drop down to the average level math class. Whatever you discern, either through your own self-exploration or with the help of professionals, it’s vital you surpass the damaging desire to cheat and avoid this act as best as possible.

If you are caught cheating there can be grave consequences. Trust first and foremost is lost between your teacher and likely your peers. Classmates may have studied very hard or worked long hours on a paper that you brazenly cheated on to get by. You will have a suspicious quality until you are able to proof yourself and show you are an honest student once again. Another consequence is failing the class and in some school, the punishment may be even more severe and irrevocable.

Catching someone cheating is a tricky situation and it’s hard to reach a decision on what to do. If someone is cheating off your paper or exam you will probably feel betrayed and want to turn in the cheater. If it is a friend and you are allowing the cheat, be very mindful you are an accomplice and will likely face the same punishment as the one cheating. Don’t be fooled in thinking you are an innocent bystander. If you naively witness someone cheating off someone else, then comes the tough choice of reporting it or not. The decision is up to you although you could confront both parties and let them know what you saw, leaving it in their hands to confess or let it go.
