The stress compels the kids to take a shortcut route in achieving success. A 16-year old student Manya is not ready to face her class X board exams. It's too early to complete the syllabus for her. The syllabus has been piling up ever since she entered the class. Manya is waiting for magic to take place so that she can peep into the question papers before the exams. She just wants to be lucky enough to pass the exams.

Children like Manya fear from exams all the time and cannot devote proper time to study. They fall into the trap of cheating. They are ready to pay a huge amount of money and end up falling prey to hoax calls.

There have been many cases in the past where the question papers have been leaked prior to the examinations.
For example, in 2011, three persons, Krishnan Raju, principal of government senior secondary school at Lapati, Rashid, an executive engineer of the Andamans PWD and Vijayan, a forest ranger were arrested on charges of leaking the question papers of the on-going CBSE exams.

The question papers included those of Science and Mathematics of Class XII. In another case, the Delhi Subordinate Services Selection Board had conducted the examinations for the post of primary teachers for MCD schools. The exam was cancelled though, after Manish Sisodia, the Delhi Education Minister found out that the paper had been leaked.

The stark reality amid all this is that most of the time, those who claim to be selling the leaked papers do not even have the actual question papers. They do this only to cheat the hapless, unprepared students and make money out of their gullibility.

So instead of giving in to exam stress and having sleepless nights, it is important to believe in yourself. Cheating is definitely not justified. Competition is a part of life and cannot be eliminated. But success depends upon our attitude.
