I recently sat a Theory and Hazard Perception Test as I am working towards getting a motorbike licence. Now I understand why, on arriving at the test centre I was made to put my jacket in a locker along with my mobile and watch, had my ID checked 4 times by two different people and was recorded on CCTV from above and to the side as well as watched over by an examiner. There must be a lot of attempts to cheat.
I am proud to say I have never cheated in any exam or assignment and I scored 96 and 84% in the two tests using only a quarter of the allocated time. Beat that cheats!
I have come to hate people who can talk a good talk but cannot do a good job. They must be the cheats.
Stunning that someone would cheat on an exam which might contribute to them staying alive !
I have spent 13 years of my life in higher education, I have seen and heard some extraordinary things, my wife also a college professor has been offered money by students, a former professor at my alma matter was threatened physically by failing students and a (then) fellow TA was offered sex to get a bettter grade, it seems there are no depths of depravity to which undergraduates will not descend...
