Exams are no less than a battle to fight for a student. The cheating tricks below are in fact the strategies which the students can use to win over this battle in an easier manner. Apart from preparing yourself from your textbooks, here are some things you can make a note of before entering the exam hall!
Cheating using Chits
It is probably the most traditional way of cheating. Carrying chits in sleeves of the shirts, pockets, socks, shoes! Where do you carry them?
Writing on the eraser
While the stationery is pretty useful during the exam, students use it in not-so teacher friendly way. Writing short points and objectives on the erasers and passing them around is one of the safest tricks! Do you still wonder why students carry so many erasers these days?
The Sign Language.
Every student becomes a professional actor in the exam halls when it comes to helping a friend out. Most of the talent is born in the exam hall it seems! Anything for cheating!

The finger signs.
Question number 1, 2nd fill up, or 3rd true or false! How do you convey these numbers to a person sitting at the farthest end from you without letting the others know about it? Learn it from a student. They can communicate through almost any distance using their hands and spread answers such that everyone, but the supervisors are aware of it!
Teachers call it cheating, we call it teamwork! What say folks?
Ever seen mouth of an exam writing student wide open? No, probably he was not yawning, he was perhaps trying to dictate an answer to some student sitting across! The students suddenly develop supernatural skills when it comes to understanding the lip movements! Talent, right?
Legends say that the girls are polite only in the exam halls. No wonder why. You may never find a girl speaking in such a low voice and in a polite manner outside, as you can find her during the exam in the exam hall. Also, the ability of a student to listen gets multiplied by manifolds in the exam center. They said it right; there is something special in the classrooms, since you learn things pretty fast in there! Again, anything for cheating!
Writing on the question paper.
So often our supervisors say, writing on the question paper is not allowed. But how smartly students write codes on them and circulate the question paper in the entire class without the supervisor even getting a hint regarding the same.

Going to the washroom.
“Bhai, exactly 11.45 ko washroom me aana.” Why do you think students take so much time in the washroom during an exam? They are probably discussing the answers with someone else over there, or reading the answer from the book they have hidden somewhere inside. One of the latest innovations in cheating!. 😀
Ever seen a supplement lying down somewhere, and did the student tell you that it flew over there or fell down by mistake? Probably you shouldn’t trust them. It is lying there for someone to pick it up and copy the answers written there in.
Peeping in your friend’s paper!
Aaaannnddd! Everyone has done it as some point of time. When you ask a student how much has he prepared for his exams, you might often hear him say, “Bhai aage waale ke bharose hu” (I am depending on the one who’ll be sitting ahead) 😀
P.S: An advice to students: Please do not resort to such acts. They can attract serious action against you. Passing by cheating is as good as failing in a lesson of life.
