Some students get ready for their exams while some others don’t. What those who do not get ready for the exams do is to plan how to cheat in the hall. Some go free while others get caught. Well if you’re planning to cheat in the exam hall, better look at this set of students who get suspended for one year from the institution if they get caught. I am sure that this is not a risk worth taking.
- Those that bring in illegal materials into the hall
This is obvious. Once you are caught with text book, photocopied material or piece of paper containing summarized answers (whether they were useful in that exam or not), you will be suspended for one year after facing the exam malpractice panel.
- Those caught writing exam for someone else
This is impersonation. Whether the person is your girl friend, boy friend or ‘personal person’, you will surely get penalised with one-year suspension when caught. You may believe you won’t be caught but what if the devil has a paper to take that day and enters the same hall with you? You will get caught and get suspended for one year. Is it worth the risk? No.
- Those who exchange answer scripts in the hall
Some students try to assist their friends by exchanging answer scripts with the person they want to assist during the exam. They collect the person’s script to write the answers for the person after finishing their own exam early. This is as dangerous as it looks. Who said you won’t be caught this time. This risk is not worth taking.
- Those that are caught using handset in the hall
This seems as if it doesn’t matter but most times students get indicted for this and are suspended for one year. Whether your handset is switched off or not, just keep it away from the exam venue because you might find it difficult to prove that you were not using it to answer a question when it is found in your possession.
- Those that fight invigilators
This is the most grievous offence of all. No matter what an invigilator says to you, the last thing you should do is to react violently. If caught it is also extreme exam misconduct which could send you home for a year or more. You can report an invigilator who misbehaves to a higher authority, not assaulting the person.
Feel free to add to or disagree with any point here.
