College can be tough.
You can’t just slack off and still manage a passing grade as you did in high school. You actually have to work hard now and do your research. If you have difficult subjects, your professors are sure to help you out but in the end, you’re still on your own. You’ll have to make every minute count and do some extra effort to pass. It’s going to be like this for the rest of your life now. You’ll have to work to achieve something. That’s just how life goes.
However, if you’re having trouble, you can also ask for help from your classmates. There is no shame in needing help. But what isn’t okay is to cheat. Cheating is intolerable at all stages in life. This Reddit user intended to help his fellow classmates in a difficult subject, but they decided to cheat off him. So he took revenge and half of them ended up failing the mid-term exam. Read his story below:
He clearly stated he doesn’t have a problem with helping classmates. But cheating is a no-go.
He had a really high GPA, and he worked really hard to get it.
His classmates were struggling with the assignment and decided to copy his work without his permission.
He figured out what had happened and decided to execute his revenge plan.
He changed his answer to an incorrect one on purpose, and everyone copied it.
He also studied very hard for the midterm just to wreck the curve.
If you’re having trouble understanding something, you should just ask for help. Cheating is unethical and simply wrong. You can’t just copy someone’s hard work and get all the credit. It is the same as stealing. If you’re going to steal and cheat, things will never work out right for you. Because of the lesson OP’s revenge taught them, I can bet they’ll never cheat again.
It takes brains to cheat, too. But none of his classmates had any.
He decided to expose his classmates to his professor.
The professor had already figured it out, and the fate of the cheaters was sealed.
Then came test day, and he was sure he managed to “wreck the curve.”
He scored 93% in the test!
This is the perfect revenge story.
Do you think he did the right thing? Or should he have just forgiven his classmates? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
