ReasonsWhy Students Cheat

Cheatingin schools by students has become an issue of discussion because ithas made learners end up losing rather than gaining. Sometimes,students may think that they will benefit from cheating, but theconsequences affect the manner in which they will live their future.In most cases, learners who are caught cheating end up regrettingbeing involved in the act because they may face cancellation of theirresults or even receive bad ratings on their performance. The purposeof this report is to discuss the reasons behind students beingengaged in cheating, as well as the effects of them being involved incheating.

Oneof the causes of cheating amid learners emanates from encounters fromunfair professors. Sometimes, tutors may not act fairly leading tostudents being forced to cheat. For instance, at times, professorscan be overly harsh when it comes to grading. Since learners need topass their exams that they take, they may opt to cheat due to theharshness of the lecturers may be geared toward failing them. Sincestudents understand that harsh grading can result in their failure,they can be coerced to cheat due to the need to do well in theexaminations. Alternatively, professors can be unfair to scholars byproviding unfair tests that are intended to fail them. Students arenot ready to fail in trials that are meant to make them losers, whichmake them have the likelihood of engaging in cheating to pass thetests. Also, biased lecturers may offer unreasonable workloads, butsince no learner would like to fail in the coursework, they end upengaging in cheating.

Anotherreason why students may engage in cheating is due to the availabilityof an opportunity to cheat. Sometimes, learners may not have thementality to cheat in an exam. However, the opportunity, that theymay be presented with, may make them get involved in cheating. Forinstance, learners may be presented with a chance to cheat when aninstructor does not take an interest in invigilating a trial. In sucha scenario, the tutor may leave the exam room, giving scholars theopportunity to cheat since no one would be supervising them.Alternatively, during a test, students may not be having theintention to cheat however, when presented with an opportunity whereother students do not cover their work during an exam, they would betempted to cheat. Additionally, there may be a scenario wherestudents may get an unexpected opportunity, where an examination mayleak. In such a situation, learners who obtain leakage are likely toget the temptation of cheating.

Theethos of a school is another contributing factor to students beinginvolved in teaching. The philosophy that a school adopts on cheatingis likely to influence the engagement of learners in cheating. Forinstance, the use of punishments has been pointed out as an effectiveway of making individuals retract from being involved in unwantedissues. In schools where there are policies that support the idea ofgiving punishments in case one is caught cheating, students arelikely to keep off from the acts because they know that they aregoing to be punished if they are involved in cheating. However, insituations where no penalty is applied in case learners are caught incheating, students are likely to be attracted to the act without evenworrying about the consequences. Alternatively, in case there is noaction taken against learners who become involved in cheating, thereis no doubt that other scholars are likely to be involved in thevice.

Despitelearners being involved in cheating, there are different effects thatthe students may face emanating from their cheating action. When mostemployers are looking for individuals to hire, they usually seekindividuals who have performed exceedingly well in their areas ofstudy. In case students cheat in exams, they are likely to getproblems in their future employments. This is because they would notbe in a position to offer the required solutions since their papersmay show that they have the capacity of handling certain problemswhile in real terms they do not have the ability. Such an issue maybe a problem because they may end up being dismissed from jobs.Another effect of student cheating in school is that the moment alearner is caught cheating, there is a high probability of thescholar being expelled from school and receiving bad reputation fromteachers, as well as peers. This may have a bad image on the learnerbecause the student may end up missing another opportunity to school.Furthermore, cheating has an impact of lowering the respect, trust,and dignity of a student. Once an individual is involved in cheating,it becomes a serial problem, which can make one to lose the respectand trust he/she is given by others. For instance, it will be hard totrust a person who has been involved in cheating as a futureworkmate.

Inconclusion, it can be argued that students get involved in cheatingdue to reasons such as philosophy adopted by a school, availabilityof an opportunity to cheat, and unfair professors. There are adverseeffects that emanate from engagement of learners in cheating. Amongthe impacts may include bad reputation, lack of trust, as well asencountering problems in future employments.
