Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I dont know of people who have cheated but I am sure it happens. I mean you have take home tests that are self-timed, how easy would it be to take some extra time and what are the chances of getting caught? You know you would get away with it and only you would know. I am sure people do it but its still cheating.
Kellogg Class of 2010...still active and willing to help. However, I do not do profile reviews, don't offer predictions on chances and am far to busy to review essays, so save the energy of writing me a PM seeking help for these. If I don't respond to a PM that is not one of the previously mentioned trash can destined messages, please don't take it personally I get so many messages I have a hard to responding to most. The more interesting, compelling, or humorous you message the more likely I am to respond. GMAT Club Premium Membership - big benefits and savings
Cheating happens, but it is not as rife as it was in my undergrad (where cheating was generalised). There is a bit of cheating in BS but not much. People tend to bend the rules in their favour.
To riverripper: I never understood the purpose of these home tests, or DIY tests. I know BS try to build a commuity of trust etc, but why tempt the students to cehat so much? I really don't what it accomplishes except inciting to cheat. It's like putting a great desert in front of a guy trying to lose weight: it won't make him thinner, only more frustrated.
Wharton admits, join the rugby team!! It'll be by far the best experience of your MBA life
cheating happens because for some people, then ends justifies the means. The code of honour, or integrity that most MBA students sign can eb easily ignored by some people for example, take home exams, some people may work together on a couple of questions. Individual graded homework assignements were people collaborate... justified by the cheater saying to themselves. " The real world relies on teamwork, so its more realistic to ask someone for help if I can't fully work out the answer"
I am not aware of any cheating at my school but I am in the executive program so the students in general are not quite as competitive as the full time students. I can't imagine any of us really thinking that it's worth it to cheat.
We have never had a take home exam (let alone a take home exam that is supposed to be timed). The only real opportunity that I can think of for cheating is to talk to another student who took the exam before you. Another possible way would be to say that you're sick so that you take the exam later and talk to another student who already took the exam.
But that would entail finding another person to collude with you and I think that's pretty tough.
I think GND reduces cheating. There's really no point because unless you're a really poor student you're probably not going to LT the class so you'll pass and you'll be fine. so why cheat?
Anyway, my point is that I don't think there's really any cheating that goes on at Wharton. Of course that's probably just me being naive but oh well.
