Copied it out word for word during the exam and then pulled the page out and ate it. Got a C


Not me, but rather someone I went to high school with. The student in question wore a hijab for religious and cultural reasons (She was Arab-American). Well, on test days in our maths classes, she would download an MP3 track with maths formulas she had recorded onto her iPod, put on her earbuds and cover them up with her hijab, take the test, and then ace it.
I only knew about this because I accidentally walked in on her in the bathroom putting in her earbuds, but I didn’t tell the teacher because I thought her method of cheating on tests was fucking brilliant.
