The year before i sat for my national examination was marked with an alarming rate of cheating and exam leakage. The ministry of education however put in place stringent measures to do away with this practise after then. What exactly is the cause of such leakage and why do students cheat in exams?

Someone once said that if you can't beat them, cheat. Students seem to have taken this advice a bit too seriously. Students who are not sufficiently prepared for national exams will always find ways to be as good as those who have prepared sufficiently for the exams. Hence, they result to such drastic measures as cheating.. I would thus say that the major reason for cheating in exams is lack of enough preparation and exam phobia. Students should therefore be encouraged to adopt a study culture as early as when they join form one. Cases of cheating should be treated with the severe penalties that they deserve

Causes pertaining to exam cheating are numerous but the main one is being unprepared, while sometimes invegilators may be relactant on their job and thus the students are tempted to cheat.

Students cheat sometimes for the thrill. It is like eating the forbidden fruit. It is sweetest. Also, it is kind of a 'cool' thing to cheat and not getting caught among peers.
Others cheat because they were not prepared enough for the exams. They freak out the last minute hence, cheat. It is the best option left and the shortest route to pass.

There are so many ways to pass exams; you do not have to read to pass exams, you could as well cheat and you pass with flying colors. The problem is just bad luck whenever you are found cheating.

Students cheat in examinations because they want to avert a phenomena where they become the laughing stock due to failure. The current education system focuses on results at the end of the four years; it does not give students a yearn for education.

People cheat because they are not prepared but don't want to fail and disappoint their parents. They see it as an easy way of passing exams without working so hard.
