Easy Ways to Cheat On a Test

Cheating is never a great idea; yet, what is more important than getting it right is not getting caught. The consequences of cheating on a test can be quite drastic including the serious consequence of jeopardizing your future. If however, you want to do it, stick to methods that you are sure about and not try anything wild.

Again, cheating is not a superb idea to follow; studying in a timely manner, finishing assignments and papers as per schedule, and doing this in the correctly prescribed way is the best way forward for your college education.

Easy Ways to Cheat On a Test

Draft paper method – This works only for those tests where your teacher allows you to bring a draft paper. Write the numbers of the questions that you do not have the answers too. Quietly pass on the draft to your team member who is better prepared than you are. And once he has written down the answers, take it back from him without arousing the suspicion of the teacher. This is a reasonably good method for math and science papers.

Cheat sheets on a backpack – Prepare cheat sheets and keep them in an easily accessible place in your open backpack. Keep the backpack next to you while keeping the notes covered well with your legs. Whenever possible and without getting caught, peek into the cheat sheets and copy.

Cheat sheets wrapped around your thighs – Make your cheat sheet and attach them around your thighs. You could use cellophane tapes to hold them in place. Using full-length trousers is essential; but, this method will work really well for women as they can use long skirts to keep the cheat sheets hidden. Of course, you would have to visit the restroom often to check out your answers.

Dictionary method – Make notes on different pages in your dictionary. Most schools allow dictionaries to be brought into the examination hall. Even if the teacher flips through the dictionary, he or she will not see every page of that rather thick book. So, the chances of you getting caught are quite low.

You just need to remember the page numbers and what notes are there in them. If you simply flip through the pages, then you could arouse the teacher's suspicions.

Cheat sheets made as an impression – Put two papers over each other and hold them so that they do not move. Now write your cheat sheets on the top page hard enough for the impression to come on the lower page. Discard the top page and take the lower seemingly empty paper into the test room. Only you will know that valuable information is there on that "empty" page. Here too, the risk of getting caught is quite low.

Binder Method – Write your notes or formulae or anything else on a ruled sheet and place it in the binder on top of everything else. When the test starts, put the binder under your desk and make sure the sheet is right on top. Now when you need to peek in, just press your foot down on the binder so that the first sheet (which is your cheat sheet) becomes nicely visible to you but not at all visible to the examiner. This will work only of the binder is made of transparent material.

Twin folder method – Bring two pocket folders and place them on your desk on above the other. Just pretend you are confused and are looking at some arbitrary thing in the folder. Actually, you would have kept the cheat sheet in the folder kept beneath.

If your teacher is very strict then this method may not really work and it can backfire on you. So, be careful of using this only with those teachers who are not very stern. And do this only when the teacher is in front of the class. If she is at the back then she might be able to make out your cheating method.

Notes inside your calculator cover – Every calculator invariably comes with a nice protective cover. Make small sheets with notes, answers, or formulae and put them unobtrusively inside the protective covering of your calculator. Whenever your teacher is not looking, then pull out these small notes, take a peek, and put them back quickly.

Make sure you pretend to use the calculator regularly. And beware of the number of times you extract the notes and put them back. If you continuously keep snapping your calculator cover, your teacher could become suspicious and come to your desk to investigate further and that may not end well for you at all.

Small notes method – Prepare your notes in the smallest possible sheets of paper that you can. The size of the papers should be small enough to remain hidden under your palm. So, before the start of your test, when you are asked to clear your desk, carefully clear it in such a way that these small notes are under your palm.

Once you receive your test paper and unseen by the teacher, place these small notes under your test papers. Pull them out discreetly and one by one to check for unknown and difficult answers.

Bookmark method – If you are allowed to bring a book for your test then make sure you bring a bookmark too. Fill these with notes. Ensure they are completely hidden inside the book and retrieve them as and when you need answers to questions you don't know.

Ruler method – The reverse of some rulers are normally blank. Use this blank space to fill out your notes, formulae, or answers. Flip over the ruler whenever you need to access these notes. Again, be careful that you are not conspicuously flipping over the ruler and unabashedly peering into it. The teacher is bound to find you out if you are not prudently discreet.

Cardholder method – Again, this will work only if stationery such as cardholders is allowed into the examination hall. Write down notes, answers, or formulae in small sheets of paper and fit them snugly into the cardholder. They will look just like cards inside. Whenever you can and whenever the teacher's eyes are not on you, retrieve the cards and peek into the notes. If you can learn up the order in which the notes are kept (and you know which sheet has which notes) then this method will work even more smoothly.

Use the space provided by the nails on your fingers – Your nails are a great space to make and prepare your cheat sheets. Write small and neat and make sure you understand what you have written. This method carries extremely low risk as your nails will simply look painted with some weird design.

Team cheating – One person in a predefined team of friends can either come well-prepared for the test and carry the cheat sheet in as foolproof a method as possible. The person next to this master will copy from his paper and this copying chain can continue along the entire desk or even the above and below desks.

This will work better when the desks are arranged in a descending order and not in a straight. Then it becomes easy for the person above the master to look into his paper and copy the answers.

Answers in your mechanical pen – Make your cheat sheets in thin papers and roll them tightly. Remove the lead from one of your mechanical pens and put this rolled sheet instead. Take a couple of these pens to shift the focus of the teacher. You, of course, should know which of the pens has the cheat sheet inside.

During the test, pretend to change your lead and discreetly pull out the paper and use the notes that you brought in to the exam hall. A fairly low-risk method though there is no denying the need for being very, very careful.

Notes in your cup of energy drink – Usually, many colleges allow students to bring in a cup of energy drink. You could use the space on the lid to write your notes. Make it look like the pattern of the logo or brand. Keep the writing small. Of course, you may not be able to fit in much; but, critical formulae etc could be a huge help. Moreover, the chances of you getting caught for cheating are almost negligible.

Final Notes

Cheating on a test could be a great and easy way to pass a test; but, it might be laying a strong and unbreakable foundation for jeopardizing your future both in terms of a college education and professional career and in terms of turning out as a distinctive law-abiding citizen of the country.

While there are many easy ways to cheat on a test, the chances of getting caught (no matter how small) exist in every method and hence, you are bound to feel the pressures associated with doing something wrong. This pressure can prompt you to become hasty and make a mistake. So, please, please be careful and do think of investing your resources for studying and doing well rather than depending on cheating mechanisms.
