If a student cannot be trusted to pass examinations without cheating, how can they be trusted when they have their country’s fate in their unreliable hands? Cheating is a despicable act. For not only is it unfair to those students who work hard to get by their academic life honestly, it also makes them bitter. There is no justice in a cheater getting better grades than a student sacrificing an entire night’s sleep to study. Wouldn’t it shatter his ideals to have something so unjust happen to him? Sophocles said ‘I would prefer even to fail by honor than win by cheating’. Everyone should learn to get by on their own hard work. Because when they win and lose on their own account, they realize that they are a product of their own work. Your own mistakes and triumphs make you whoever you are. At the end of a cheater’s educational journey, he will have absolutely nothing. No knowledge and most definitely no sense of genuine accomplishment. Educational institutions exist to produce engineers, doctors, scientist, and lawyers. They attempt to provide a healthy competitive environment for the students and with the motivation to work harder and harder for success. Contrary to the school spirit, cheating makes a student lazy and his mind is left quiescent.
