We are often not prepared to take tests. The fault can be from tiredness, laziness, fear of failing, etc. Thus, we are "forced" to paste. If that's the case, read the tips in this article to learn what to do to get that 10, 0 you've always wanted.
Step 1. Decide how you want to paste
There are a few different methods: using an extra sheet of answers, matching it with a colleague, or in a very subtle way that is difficult to prove. See the sections below for more information.
Step 2. Don't get caught
It's no use cheating and being caught by the teacher. Follow these tips:
- Don't raise suspicions. Try to maintain a balance between copying responses and disguising. Keep calm and don't stare at one place for more than five to ten seconds. Run your eyes in various directions - that way, the teacher or supervisors won't be suspicious or run into your accomplice (or the answer sheet).
- Don't be too ambitious. It's not impossible to get the highest grade by cheating - however, if you're the only one in the class to get a high grade, the teacher will be suspicious. This is not a problem for those who are used to getting good grades; however, if the teacher knows that you are not performing as well, he may find out. Miss some questions on purpose to be sure. Try getting around 8.0 on a first test, gradually increasing the note until you get a 10, 0. Do this wobble to look more natural.
- Get rid of the evidence that could incriminate you. Ask to go to the bathroom as soon as you finish (if you haven't already) to throw the glue paper in the toilet or in the trash. The longer you hold this role, the more likely you are to get caught by an authority.
Method 1 of 4: Using the Extra Sheet Method
Step 1. Write down the necessary information on a piece of paper
Include formulas, keywords, vocabulary terms, dates, definitions, names, verb conjugations, etc.
Step 2. Write or print the information correctly
Please use legible font in an appropriate size (not too big, not too small). While you want to include everything possible on a small sheet of paper, keep this in mind: if the fonts are tiny, you'll have to work harder to read them and thus be exposed. Also, if possible, type and print the sheet to reduce the chances of the teacher inferring that you filled it out by hand.
Step 3. Copy the content
This strategy is more common in Portuguese tests. Copy the words you don't know how to write well on the paper and keep it in your lap or sleeve. Be very careful as the method is dangerous.
Step 4. Hide the sheet
Try these methods:
- Paste using your own body: Instead of writing down the answers on a printed or handwritten sheet, write it down on your own skin. Use your forearm (if male) and thigh (if female). These options are nice because you can wear a dress or a long-sleeved t-shirt to disguise it and not look obvious. Choose a spot that is only visible to you.
- Glue using a water bottle: Print the glues on a piece of paper that is the same color as the label on the bottle. Stick it over the top of this label facing you. Try to imitate the writing style of the packaging for cover.
- Paste using a binder: If you have a binder with a "pocket" on the front, use it to store the glue. Put it under your desk and take a look when no one is paying attention. Just be very careful, especially if you have to make noise.
- paste using a calculator: This option is common for those taking math tests, as this is the only opportunity to cheat without arousing suspicion. Write down formulas and information between the back and the lid of the calculator.
- Paste with an alternative method with the calculator: if you have a graphing calculator, save the math formulas in it. Then archive the information to be able to access it even if the teacher asks you to empty the RAM memory. Unarchive them during the exam and finally clear the memory again. This is also successful if the school provides calculators, as no teacher or student will consult the file. Finally, if necessary, research how to go about this process.
- Glue using a stack of papers: hide the glue sheet in a separate place from the proof to avoid being caught in the act. You can keep it in the bathroom, someone's chair, etc.
- Hide the glues under the sleeve of a long-sleeved shirt: This is also a good method, as the teacher will not look there. Pull out the sheet and refer to the story when he's not looking.
Method 2 of 4: Using the Partner Method
Step 1. Sit behind someone you can cheat on
Choose a colleague who knows the content (who says he studied or who is smart). Adjust to the extreme right or left of the seat, diagonally to the person, so you can look over their shoulder without having to move your head too much. Never choose someone in the middle or at the front of the class, as the teacher may be more attentive to you.
Step 2. Arrange for a partner with whom you can exchange signals during the race
You can double your chances of getting good grades if you work together. Do the following if the test is multiple choice:
- Combine hand or foot signals to indicate that the answer is the letter A, B, C, D, or E or "wrong." Create a specific sign for "wrong answer" to increase your chances of doing well and helping the other person. Also, think of a beep to draw your colleague's attention without raising suspicion (coughing, tapping your foot, etc.).
- He coughs to get his colleague's attention.
- Use your fingers to enter the question number. A three followed by a two, for example, might indicate the question "32".
- Wait for the colleague to signal the answer (pull the ear to represent "B", for example).
- If you need help between two answers: cough, enter the question number and indicate which alternatives you want to check.
- Your colleague can nod if you're correct or send the "wrong answer" signal if it's incorrect (if you have long hair, tie it up in a ponytail).
Method 3 of 4: Using Safer Methods
Step 1. Try to get the teacher's version of the textbook
If the teacher uses ready-made tests taken from the book, buy a copy of it online. Memorize the answers before the assessment. This method works with any subject, but mainly basic sciences, foreign languages and history, for example.
Step 2. Try to get a copy of the test that the teacher has given before
To do this, talk to someone who is ahead of you in studies or who is going through something similar. Study directly from this document - and if you think the teacher will use the same questions, study from them.
Step 3. Ask to leave the room
If the teacher who will administer the test usually lets students go to the bathroom or leave the room during the assessment, ask permission. Take the opportunity to memorize the subjects or questions and research the answers on the internet before returning, for example.
Say you're feeling sick and go to the bathroom until exam time is over. Before that, just find out if the teacher will let you back in before resorting to this method - so you don't get in trouble
Step 4. Copy the answers on the hard face
At the time of delivery, try to place the test on top of the assessment pile on the teacher's desk when he's not around. At this point, pick up the pen and copy all the answers from the first test in the set. However, keep in mind that this method is risky and may not work.
Step 5. Use a "fake" copy of the proof
For this, it is good that you know in advance the exact format of the assessment. This way, you will be able to write down the main points of the answers.
- If the exam paper is school-specific, remember to book in the right places. If necessary, include page numbers and other details.
- The next step is to staple this paper to the original proof sheet without anyone noticing.
Method 4 of 4: Trying Not to Paste
Step 1. Try to memorize as much last minute information as possible
Consult notes and notebook to try to get as many questions right without cheating as possible.
- For speech tests, try to memorize key words and main points: Generally, teachers try to look for these most important terms and don't consider the "rest" as much. If you know what you can be charged for, try using four or five specific terms instead of trying to memorize everything - to increase your chances of success.
- For math tests, try memorizing formulas: Knowing the formulas can be more effective than spending hours on end exercising. If possible, copy them as many times as you can until you decorate them so you don't have to paste.
- For multiple-choice tests, try "gathering" the information you know will be charged: Instead of memorizing lists of words, separate the content into smaller sets. For example, if the test is history, don't try to memorize the names of the five presidents of the military dictatorship at once. Instead, memorize the initials of each one: "CB (Castello Branco), CS (Costa e Silva), M (Médici), G (Geisel) and F (Figueiredo)". That way it will be easier to remember everything.
Step 2. For the next test, start studying earlier and more effectively
Taking into account the semester or academic year's schedule, you can try to put together a syllabus of your own.
- Your peers may be suspicious and tell the teacher that you are cheating.
- If you share your computer at home, it's best to erase your browsing history so that no one will find out that you've read this article.
- There is always the possibility that you will get caught. If that happens, you can be punished with an automatic zero grade, a suspension or even expulsion. Many schools even mark the record permanently. If you're afraid, try studying instead of cheating.
- Much of the knowledge we acquire in school comes in handy in professional life. In these cases, it's better not to paste - after all, you won't be able to paste in professional environments.
- Don't brag about necklace. It seems obvious, but many people find themselves because they stick. Someone might end up ratting on you.
- Always keep an eye on the teacher. Neither method works when he's looking at you suspiciously.
- If you have to cheat because you didn't have time to study, remember that it's still good to check the content after the exam. Perhaps the next assessment covers cumulative issues, for example.
- Using hard-to-proven methods is always better than relying on a partner - which, in turn, is always better than using a sheet. The less evidence there is of the infraction, the better.
- Cheating is never a good idea: you can feel guilty and even want to confess what you've done and get in trouble.
- Even if you don't get caught, you probably won't get a much better grade just for cheating. In addition, you could risk being disqualified, suspended or even expelled.
- In some countries, you can be arrested if you cheat on an important test.
