This is a question Cheating cheaty cheats

I'm rubbish at cheating. I was asked to help run a stall at a local fair. We sold squares on a treasure map for 10p a go, with the one closest to the "hidden treasure" winning stuff.

I told my sister where it was. I'd not really thought through how obvious this would be. I've kind of avoided cheating since, what have you cheated at? Confess all, it'll make you feel better.

In year 8
I sat next to a lass called Lindsay in mathematics. Now, I was a pretty good mathematician back then and would regularly rank in the top 10 in our year group (of about 250)

Lindsay didn't seem that clever when you spoke to her but often got about the same marks as me. Which was a coincidence as she sat next to met in year 8. And come to think of it, in year 7 too!

Anyway, I finally noticed that she was copying every bloody answer I wrote down. It wasn't difficult to cheat as the questions were 100 multiple choice questions with 5 alternative answers.

So, at the end of year 8 tests, I asked the teacher if I could purposely get the answers wrong. We devised a strategy whereby, if I thought the answer was A, I'd circle B. If I thought it was B, I'd circle C.....and if I thought the answer was E, I'd circle A.

So, the end of year 8 results come:

Me: 96%
Lindsay: 3%

Yay me!
