No, not the card game, I mean real live cheating. Back when we were students the worst we could pull off was bringing in tiny pieces of paper or consulting each other during the exam. This was years ago. These days my sister has her finals and the stories she has to tell make me eyes bulge in amazement and leave me not knowing wether I should repremand or applaud. They have a friend, let’s call him “A”, who has managed to redefine the word cheating forever. The young man has really taken it to the next level and has managed to make the most of modern technology. I’m thinking if he put that much effort into his classes he would have been top dog by now.
In the Faculty of Engineering the exams are really long, some last up to six hours. As a result students are allowed to bring in food, drinks and hell even entertainment. You are not allowed to use your phone during the exam, cause duh, that’s a no-brainer cheat. Then again, who needs a phone when you can have your Ipod video. Here is what “A” does. He takes photos of all the slide presentations and necessary diagrams and uploads them to his Ipod as photos for easy access. Then he takes his lectures and breaks them down by professor and topic. He then uses a mixer and his laptop to record the lectures in his voice as mp3s, making sure to speak slowly and clearly so that he may write in the exam as he listens to himself relay the important points. By using clever categorization he is guarenteed easy access to any part of the syllabus that he desires.
I know!! WOW.
