You may think after reading this myth that you don’t believe it applies to you but the only prove of believe is in your actions. In my society our learning has been incapacitated by this myth. We have institutionalized examination malpractice. This scourge, which some years back was a tightly kept secret, now thrives enabled by examination bodies, school administrations, invigilators, students and their parents.
The problem with cheating to learn is that it short-changes your brain, crashes your self-esteem, degrades your integrity, removes your dignity, and makes you less likely to render useful service to your society. At the end of it all, after you have cheated your way to examination “success”, you haven’t learned anything.
Contrary to this myth I have met learners who believed in themselves enough and had sufficient dignity to refuse malpractice. They read, practiced, understood, and passed their examinations with very good grades. As I said in the beginning, if one can do it, you too can.
