Today, I made a multiple choice exam so my friend could practice and get a good grade on his real exam. While I was helping him finish it, the teacher saw it, thought we were cheating and failed us both. FML

Was the real test already out or something? How could she assume cheating if she hadnt given out the test? I'm really confused as to how this happened...

You should definitely be able to explain. I hope your teacher realizes you were just being a good friend and not an unfaithful student

If only your teacher knew... but I'm sorry about that.

The teacher should have known though. It's easy to look at the practice test OP made and realize it wasn't the test intended to be used.

this needs a follow-up

It's fairly common for students in school (especially tough schools) to steal copies of the exam ahead of time and memorize the answer sequence so they can get a perfect score.

That would've been something obvious, really.

#3 But would they be that stupid to do it in class? that teacher is crazy paranoid...

Yes they would #7. I've literally seen it happen in person before.

Uhm they stole a test to memorize it cause they're too stupid to study.

#16 But the teacher would only have to look at the test for a few seconds to see it isn't the real one.

Sounds like the "I don't want to hear your excuses" teacher

"What do you have to say for yourself Timothy?" "Well, I --" "I don't want to hear your excuses!"

#38 exactly every single time to everyone in my classes

"But---" "NO BUTS! YOU HAVE DETENTION UNTIL WE HAVE OUR TEST!"

Did you have the same questions or answers as the real test? Why did she assume you were cheating? Couldn't you explain? So many questions...I'm hoping for a follow up!

you could have easily proved that you weren't cheating

Think of the teacher as your parent-- they probably didn't want to hear an explanation. The teacher should have been able to realize it, but the teacher may also not want to be wrong-- it's an unfortunate part of the education system.

Teachers not wanting to be wrong is what got me suspended from school one time :(

Why didn't you show her your mini-test and have here compare it to the actual test. It'll show her how it is not the same test with the same exact questions and answers in the same order. And if she still fails you, go to the principal and confront the issue there.

My thoughts too. If she won't listen than go to the principle. Chances are he'll listen to your argument.

surely when she saw your made up test she'd realise that you weren't cheating?

Guess not. The teacher should have known that it was a fake.

Tell the teacher and explain. They should let you go, People sell tests so s/he might think that

I think if you show it to her and try to explain yourself she might realize what's actually happening. If not then go to the principal.
