How Has Cheating Affected Students ?

Can a cheater still be a scholar ? It has been discovered that the amount of students cheating has increased tremendously in the past year. Some students do it to get their work done more quickly. Other students that take rigorous Advanced Placement or Honors courses do it because of lack in time to complete the work. All of these students have one thing in common.
They are doing work to get the grade and not for the purpose to learn. The pressure of maintaining a high GPA has ruined students’ eagerness to learn. They believe that cheating is the easy way out. However cheating puts more work on them in the long run. I advise students to take the time to do the work and not have to worry about it later.
