Exam Cheating

Exam cheating is a bad habit that has costed the lives and future of many through cancellation of their exam results after spending four good years in high school or eight years in primary or discontinnation in the case of colleges and universities. Sophy was a very good and close friend of mine but at times we would disagree when it came to studies .Both of us were third years in Kenyatta university though taking different courses .For her cheating was a routine because she would cheat in CATS and in the main exam and at the end of the day she would get straight As and therefore to her there was no need to study or revise. One time during a main exam,things got hot on her ,she had written some 'mwakenya' and unfortunately it was found out believe me that became the end of sophy's journey to acquiring her dergee.She was automatically discontinued and as they say regrets come later that's when she remembered that what i always told her had some sense.
