Cheating on final - page 2

So I am flabbergasted right now. First I will give the background. This girl, I'll call her "Ann" is in my study group for GOBC1. A couple of weeks back she told me how 'smart' I was in... Read More

    well, "Ann" decided to sit next to me again today. Did I mention that the only days she has sat next to me is on test days? But it bothered me all night, so this morning I got to class early and told our professor, although I did not give her name, he thanked me and said he would keep an eye out for the cheaters. Well, needless to say that when "Ann" walked in and decided to take the long journey passed her "usual" sit to come sit next to me, it caught the professor's eye, and he smiled at me. So I feel better knowing that I did the right thing, and I did not even have to name anyone, but he still knew the person, due to her choice of sitting.

    That is great that your professor caught this! Do you find it weird that "Ann" chose to sit next to you AGAIN, even after you told her no??? She sounds very bold, stupid AND insecure. God help her future patients!

    What this girl did was absolutely wrong and you were right to report it to the prof...

    But, on an aside from that.... Even if she cheated her way all the way through NS, she would never pass the NCLEX!

    This "Ann" is completely ridiculous! I don' understand how people think they can not make any effort to study and ask someone who has spent the time needed to study and has sacraficed going out, seeing your kids, working less hours, losing sleep, whatever it may be to achieve a good grade - but then to help them. It seems people like Ann really don't think anything is wrong and she could go all the way through nursing school (if she doesn't get caught) and never even feel bad or disappointed in herself - that makes it even worse. Karma does come around sooner or later.

    Yes, she is very bold. It took everything I had not to accidentally trip her as she passed my seat.

    Our final exam grade was posted and I achieved 36/40 securing my A for the course. I have no idea what "Ann" achieved, but I shall see on Monday, when GOBC2 starts. If she isn't there that means she didn't get her C.

    Congratulations, both for your "A" and for alerting the teacher to the situation.

    Congratulations on your A for the class! I really hope Ann bombed the final, or that your instructor gives her a nice fat "0" for the grade.

    Wow, so glad that she got caught! I can't imagine having a nurse take care of me who couldn't pass nursing school! Worse, what if she was taking care of my child? *shudder* You should be proud of yourself for standing up and telling the prof

    I feel the same way. Why should I study my butt off just for you to cheat. I had a girl like that in my psychology class. She randomly sat by me on a test day. I could see that she was struggling during the test....lingering on questions to long. I kept my hand over my scantron and finished as quick as possible. Just upset me. And who are you cheating anyway.....yourself....don't you want to earn a grade. Thats what I have to say about cheaters.
