If you've cheated in school, you've probably scribbled test answers on an eraser, passed notes with a friend, glanced at your classmate's test or even made a cheat sheet. You never, however, cheated like this amazing student. He's taken cheating to an entirely different level: A 35-foot long cheat sheet with 25,000 answers.


That's right. I'll repeat it for effect: A 35-foot long cheat sheet with 25,000 answers.

Can you imagine the effort required in creating this magical cheat sheet? It probably has every answer to every question on every test about every subject ever known to man. It's so comprehensive that the school that caught him cheating should name him valedictorian and not punish him. Unfortunately, the world doesn't reward cunning evil geniuses like that.

The high school student who was cheating on an university entrance exam in Kazakhstan was caught because he was rustling and fiddling with his clothes too much before the test started. His notes (are they even just notes anymore?) included 25,000 answers that covered math, history, Russian, Kazhak and "another subject of the student's choice", according to the Austrian Times. I really want to know what that other subject was. I also want to know why the heck didn't he just study instead of making the most amazing cheat sheet ever. I also hope a university accepts him.

I watched this happen when I was in HS, I thought it was brilliant.

About 3/4 of the way through a Scantron test, the guy next to me goes up to the teacher's desk with his question booklet and places them on the desk to point to a question and ask something about it.

He comes back to his desk and finishes the exam.

Later, I discovered that he was waiting for the smart kid in class to turn in his answer sheet. As soon as those smart answers were turned in, this guy went up front to "ask the question." When he placed the booklet on the desk, he picked up the smart kid's answer sheet. Once back at his desk, he copied the kids answers to his blank one, and turned them both in at the end of the exam.

Brilliant. They wren't even sitting next to each other, so there was no way he could have been accused of cheating off him.

I can imagine him just sitting there, waiting for the smart kid. SOON...
