    Cheating in school tests

    Am i the only one stupid enough to try half of these cuz they seem pretty good to me i really like 23. (copied from wikihow.com.)
    1. The hat trick: This involves a baseball hat, small handwriting, and a good look of frustration on your face. Occasionally, when the answer is too tough for you, get the "this will never work" look on your face, and take your hat off to wipe your brow with your sleeve. Your concealed page of notes should be visible inside the 'cuff' of the hat, where your forehead sits. Avoid eye-contact with the teacher and glance occasionally. The best part about the hat trick is that once you make up your little sheet, you have probably learned all the stuff on there and you can have confidence in your own abilities.
    2. The Rubber Band:This is simple for formulas etc, and is done quite simply. Take a wide rubber band and stretch it out real far and place books to keep it from getting small again. While its stretched out, write your notes/cheats on the stretched out rubber band with a black ballpoint pen, making sure to write your letters as close as possible. Then let it return to its original size, and when it is at normal size, the notes will just look like black boxes, not cheats. Wear the rubber band as a bracelet to your test, and when you need your answer on the test, just stretch the rubber band out, and, when done, just let it snap back.
    3. The calculator: For tests allowing calculators, use any sort of text based memory to record all the equations, notes, theorems, proofs, etc. Create a fake, password protected program and use the text box. No teacher will ever be able to access it.
    4. The ipod: The excuse: "I did all my studying listening to my music, so 'state-dependent' theory says...blah blah blah". Anyway, with a cheap microphone, do a voice recording of any and all notes you could need for the exam. Keep every chapter, section, etc. on a different track so it can be easily accessed. Store the audio file on the iPod. If listening is not allowed, put an earphone up your sleeve, or wear a hood. (It is easy to conceal a small earphone without a conspicuous hood if you have long hair.) You can also use the voice recording of your notes to study before the test so you wouldn't have to cheat.
    5. The iPod revisited: Write whatever notes you need in a text file and put it on your iPod (may require software) or create an image file of the notes and load it to your photo iPod. Wear a pair of baggy jeans to school. Make sure your desk is directly behind the person in front of you. Put your feet up against the back legs of the seat in front of you with your knees high to conceal your lap. Place iPod in your lap with your fly open. If your teacher comes near or suspects you, slide iPod into your pants. (Note: works best for teachers of the opposite sex, particularly girls with male teachers.)
    6. The take-home test: So, you sat down and, well, you're screwed. What do you do? (Keep in mind, this is a rarity, but has worked. It takes knowing the teacher's tendencies.) Take the test home with you. Do not turn it in. Get help, and finish the test at home. Bring it back to class with you for the next lecture, along with several different colored pens and markers. When you see her grading method, color, style... Grade your own test. Either she recollects the tests to record them, and you're money, or... When the end of the semester comes around, and you have no score recorded, you can bring in evidence that you actually took the test and got graded on it. (Note: This one can get you in serious trouble... not for the light-hearted).
    7. Bathroom Cheat: This is the easiest way not to get caught. Simply have a calculator in your pocket and while taking the test, write questions down on a piece of scrap paper. Then go to the bathroom, whip out the calculator and do the math.
    8. Essay tests. Well, this is a brick wall in the cheating world. You can either try to copy or BS your way through it, but one thing will get you the points. Teachers are usually looking for *specific words or phrases* to be used, and they usually tell you them in class the day before the test. Know the teacher, know the buzz-words, and be able to BS it well. Sorry, no silver bullet here. Or is it? Yes......turns out that studying IS the very silver bullet you are looking for, and by tuning in for the buzz-words and specific phrases, you were actually learning a lot. Good for you.
    9. Essay tests (alternate technique): If a teacher gives you a very specific topic in advance of the test {such as "On Monday everyone will have to write an essay about a symbol I choose from [some book]". Some teachers may be even more specific (remember to consider what unit or subjects you have been working on in school, the essay will probably deal with them)}. Write an essay at home a few days before, edit it, and rework it. Then memorize as much of it as you can and try to adapt it to whatever the exact question ends up being. And, surprise, this is not actually considered cheating, only being prepared.
    10. The Bra Technique: (Only on tests in which you may use the bathroom escorted (such as APs) (Not suggested for boys). Place a cheat sheet in your cleavage so that it cannot be seen. Ask to use the bathroom. Close stall door and silently pull out notes. Remember to make it sound like you are using the bathroom and not take to long. To get rid of the notes use small sheets of paper, than simply flush them down the toilet with toilet paper.
    11. Post-it note technique: Take a post-it note and write the answers on it. Then stick it on the inside of your shirt (preferably a dark color). When you take the test pretend you are wiping your sweat by putting your shirt over your head and look at the answers.
    12. Studying Technique: Find out what you've got to know for the test in advance. If you can't do this, ask a trusted person who may know. Keep your info in mind. Get some plasters or stickers. Write down your information on the sticky side of them.Stick them on your hand, wrist or arm on exam day. When the test comes, all you'll have to do is lift up the plaster to reveal the answer!
    13. "Whoops" Technique: If you know what is on the test (you have a copy from another student) or you know exactly what will be on it (ask other students) write a good version, then keep it with you and don't let it get folded etc. When you get the actual test, write some stuff on it and pretend to be thinking (or scrambling if it is a different version). Right before tests are collected, pull out your original copy and stash the other; turn in the good test. If it is a different version, you may still be able to get away with it; just turn in the wrong one and when/if the teacher asks, say it was the one they gave you, and stick to that! (this works best for essay type tests)
    14. Hidden Cheat Sheet Technique: Before the test, cut out a small piece of paper the size of a gum wrapper, and write the information you need on it. Take apart the plastic pen you'll be using during the test, and slip the paper into the pen. Then, during the test, you can just take apart your pen and read the information needed. Make sure you don't get seen. This method can work even better if your pen has a clear shaft.
    15. Gum Wrapper: Before the test buy some gum. Not one in a package, but some that comes individually wrapped. Open the package and CAREFULLY unwrap a stick of gum. Take a small sheet of paper, write your info and put it under the gum, re wrapping the stick. Put it back in the pack on top take a few out so it looks like a pack you've had for a few days. During the exam, when the proctor isn't looking, eat the gum, read your info. Pretend to get tired of the stick and put it back in the wrapper so you "destroy" your cheat notes and thus don't get caught. Additionally, get a pack of gum that comes in a tin, like ice breakers sours gum/mints. Cut out a circular piece of paper the size of the tin and open the "to share" side to read the notes. Only have a few pieces of gum in there, though, so that you won't look suspicious when you throw it away. (Note: works even better under the padding of Altoids.)
    16. Band-Aid: This usually only works with small notes, and if you are an athlete (football, skateboarding) this works even better. Get the biggest band-aid you can without it making it look like it was on purpose. Put it on your elbow or knee. Write the some notes on the cloth like part of the band-aid, red (blood), brown (dried blood), or yellow/green (pus) works best, but you could really use any color. Then, when it's test time, itch the band-aid. Then, act like you're going to fix your band-aid. Pretend you're looking at the wound, but don't pull it completely off (you don't have a wound!). Look at the answers. Do not take the band-aid off during school! They will obviously see you're faking.
    17. Desk Cheat: Before the test, (make sure teacher isn't in room when you do this--try day before the test--) get a good sheet of notes, formulas, complicated Questions and answers, etc. and have it all summarized on 1 sheet of paper. Take the sheet and glue/tape it on to the bottom of the desk that you KNOW that you will be sitting at. During the test, simply drop your pencil under the desk, reach for it, look up and enjoy your answers.(Do not stare for too long or the teacher might notice)
    18. Desk Cheat 2: print out a small strip of paper the thickness of the desk with the answers and put small strips of tape on the ends. when in the class for the test, tape the paper to the edge of the desk closest to you, and if the teacher walks by, cover it with your arm.
    19. Note-card cheat: If you vaguely know what will be on the test, before the test write very small on both sides of a few note-cards. Write everything you want to know for the test. What usually helps to limit the information is to study 1/2 of what you need to know, and write down the other half. On the day of the test, wear a sweatshirt with long sleaves. Slip the note cards into the sleave. When you get the test, slip the note cards from your hand, to the 2nd or third page of the test. When you go to look at the cards, it will look like you just are looking at pages ahead. When you actually get to the page on the test where the note cards are, slip them back into your sleave and slip them on to another page. Near the end of the test, slip the note cards back into your sleave. (NOTE: This only works on multiple page tests.)
    20. Note-Belt Cheat: Make sure you have a belt, and cut out a piece of paper slightly shorter than the belt is tall/wide, and about 6=10 inches long. Write out all of your notes on this piece of paper (One side only) then attach it to the inside of your belt. Come test-day, make sure you have this belt on you, and it is relatively loose. When you want to read the notes, simply suck in your gut, and read from the inside of your belt. Note: This may work better if you tuck in your shirt beforehand, so that it does not seem odd that you are lifting up your shirt.
    21. Finger Nail CheatMay require medium-long finger nails.) Make sure you use a pencil (Best results are with at most a .5 lead pencil)! Write any information really small on your finger nail. Teachers don't think about checking your finger nails, plus, it blends with your nail color and you can easily see it as the lead will reflect some light. Best of all, by simply wiping your nail to another finger, you can wipe off the writing!
    22. Sleeved-Shirt CheatRequires long sleeve shirt.) Wear a long-sleeved shirt that can easily be rolled up or moved. Using a black or blue pen, write formulas or key facts that you are sure will be on the test on your forearm. Try to sit in an area where a person of larger size may block you from the teacher's vision. Try not to obviously check your forearm, but pretend that you have some sort of itch and you are scratching your forearm.
    23. Water Bottle Cheat: Get a water bottle and very carefully remove the label/wrapper that wraps around the middle of the bottle. If it is thick enough, write your cheat-sheet/notes on the back of the label (the white part that sticks to the bottle) or attach the label to a sheet of thin paper with a glue stick or tape. Re-attach the label to the bottle. If you look through the bottle at the right angle, you will be able to read your notes through the clear water within it.
    24. Trash Can Cheat: Type out some notes (big) on a sheet of paper. (Typed so that the teacher cannot recognize your handwriting if caught) Attach some tape to the back of the paper and act like you're throwing it away but really stick it to one side of the inside of the trash can. Then, during a test, act like you're going to throw away something (or spit out gum, sharpen pencil, whatever) and look at your garbage can notes while you're there. When the test is over, rip off the sheet and throw it away.
    25. Sign Language Cheat: (Only works with multiple choice exams, requires a friend and planning) Get your friend's attention through some way previously determined (coughing, whistling, knocking, stretching, etc.). Tell your friend the number of the question by using your fingers on one hand. (For example, ONE by sticking out your index finger immediately followed by TWO by sticking out your index and middle finger together would mean question #12. You can do numbers greater than 4 by using your thumb to denote a plus sign. For example, index-middle + index-middle-ring + thumb + index-middle-ring-pinky = question #27.) In response, your friend can give you the answer to the question by showing you his thumb (A), index (, middle (C), ring (D), or pinky (E) finger.
    26. Body Parts Cheat; Get a pen (red works best as it blends best with skin tone) and write little notes on any area of skin on your body. The ankles are good if you wear jeans and can cross your legs. The wrists are good if you can write on your veins with blue pen. On the inside of your thighs you can write formulas if you wear shorts. One of the best places to put crib notes are on your hands, for several reasons; 1) You will be using them during the whole test, 2) It is easy to hide with another hand or a shirt sleeve. Write short notes on the lines and wrinkles of your palm, the sides of the fingers, or the little peice of skin between your fingers.
    27. Calculator Legs Cheat; In your maths exam, just put your calculator inbetween your legs and whenever you need to use it, just pretend you are rotating your neck so you glance at your calculator while you punch in the numbers. Repeat for the answer.
    28. Sleeve Note Cheat; Just get a small peice of paper and write all your notes up beforehand. On the day of the test just slip it into your jumper sleeve, and when you need it just pull a small portion of it out, look at it under the desk, put it back into your sleeve and keep writing! Easy.
    Tips

    • Play it cool...don't panic, and don't get caught.
    • If anything is suspected, be able to destroy the evidence. This means your cheat sheet, calculator/iPod memory.
    • After getting the answers by cheating don't write them right away.
    • Use your language to advantage. If you speak a second language, cheating is even easier. Write your cheat notes on your arm in a language you know no-one else will understand. NOTE: it may not work in languages exams!
      • Do all you can to avoid getting caught.
    • The amount of time you spend trying to cheat, and the risk you take in doing so usually outweighs the amount of time and energy needed to actually study and learn the material
    • Don't cheat in Korea because the teachers are very observant!
    • Know the teacher. Some teachers are cheatable and some are not Note: if the teacher still talks about the time s/he caught someone cheating 3 years ago shes cheatable
    • Cheating dumb teachers is easy and cheating smart teachers is fun, but the greatest satisfaction comes from cheating dumb teachers who think they're smart
    • If you have to look up a page instructing you how to cheat, there is a 99% probability that you will get caught cheating.
