The great Engineering copy cats ;-)

The post below is a general observation of the writer.

Well,how often do we realize that exams are nearing and we are busy involved in some other activities rather than studying.Don't we feel the pain in our ass when there are just 2 or 3 days remaining for the exam.Yes,we do.But what if by the time we haven't studied anything or may be studies only few things.Thats the time when the devil plays a trick .He gradually occupies our mind and persuades us to take unwanted or unnecessary steps that can put us to serious troubles.I am an Engineering student and I bet most of my blogger friends here are engineering students like Anurag,Sid,Sambit,Divinidiu(sorry for the typos ). I want to know how many Engineering students try to or atleast pretend to study as their semester begins.You will be amazed to know that hardly 10% of them start their studies as their sem commences.
Let us stay in this topic as I feel I am diverting away from the topic.

Ok ,now I am going to speak about few copying techniques in which I was involved .But , you see I am a sincere student and I don't copy during main exams .Its just for college tests.

Let us see various techniques first.
1.The Cellphone trick
This one is tricky .This sort of copying involves using your cell phones with features like bluetooth and camera facilities .I know a person who has mastered this art of copying.I won't wish to disclose his name here .If I ever do that,then I am damm sure he is gonna kick my ass hard in college.He sits in front of me during exams.He plans a backup technique wherein if he feels that the questions on the question papers are totally different ,he would seek help from his mobile phone...Ahh!! now don't be amazed or surprised.As I said this is one of the most dangerous methods.Firstly ,he looks for the invigilator.If he doesn't sights the person ,he slowly and steadily removes his cellphone to get the snaps of the answer.He then writes the anwer on his sheets and finally done with copying.There may be cases when his peers may need the answer.Then he would ask them to connect their phone through bluetooth connectivity.Please ,don't ever try that.

2.The Supplement Swap method.
As the name suggests ,this method basically involves two candidates who aim to share their answers.The first one would pass on his main sheet and the 2nd one would pass his supplement and write the answers.After completion,they would swap the answer sheets once again to get back their own papers.This is risky at certain cases.Imagine the case where you have the answer sheet of the 2nd person and you want to return it back to him or her.If the invigilator is near you then are for almighty's help so as to divert the teachers way.I once tried this with one of my close buddy during semester 2 college unit tests.He had my physics paper while I had his chemistry paper and guess what we got same marks.

3.The Pendrive insert method .. applicable only for practical exams.
Look for opportunity ,if no one is aside you ...remove your pen drive..insert it on the slot and copy the programs directly.We un sincere engineering students do this.Imagine writing Cohen Sutherlands program which takes around 25 minutes.It is practically impossible to type the codes without any errors.Pendrive insert method may help in such cases.Few of my friends tried it once and they were successful.

4.The Table and desk method.

I do this thing ..where I write the formulae's and diagrams on the desk before the exams start.This is commonly practiced by our former topper of our class :p .Hope she is not reading this as I see her doing this everytime before
exams.Well,this is fun.

5.The chit

People make small chits with handwritten answers whose size ranges from 4mm to 9 mm.They make use of the chits for writing the answers

I advice all guys that you should study.The methods written by me are just observation.I have not tried it .Please do not try this .I didn't had any topics to write so I wrote on this.I have seen students doing this and thus wrote about it.Any ways good luck guys.....

Work hard and I bet you will get the fruits of your hard work in form of good marks.
Hope to see you soon.

What do you say about my observations and all methods?


  1. haha.. those are some really nice techniques :P

    i had done the supplement swap method in prelims :D

  2. Very Very informative.hehe.
    Pulled me back to my college and school days.
    Examination hall is the most holiest place. you give and take without any prejudices...

  3. heyy..dnt know why..but on reading the title of the post, i could make out that, it must be by u only..hehe..nice1 it was, vry informative fr all budding, vry true, all these tricks hav been followed by us engineers,was taken bak 2 my coll days..luvlyy post..:)

  4. Very very well written..! Some handy tips infact...!
