All form of cheating like relationship or school cheatingis wrong. Cheating has its advantages and disadvantages, its also make the person achieve their desires, but does it pays off?
Like any other subject or topic, cheating has its advantages and disadvantages. Some people in college actually sell there homework and test answers for money. Therefore, when they make money and the students gets good grades then everyone is happy.
They will not spend the money on the proper books or items they need to be successful doing a project that they have been assigned to do. They would rather wait until someone else has done all the research and the work and then copy from them. While you were studying and doing all that is moral and good. They are partying and having a good time so that they may copy your efforts and take credit for an A or a grade better than they could have ever gotten on their own. The disadvantages of cheating being caught cheating on a test or copying somebody information. That lead to expulsion or getting a low grade.
In college the expense can cause life long debt and who wants to have a parent put out that kind of money to have a student drop out or just plain don't care so that they can have a life away from home coming and going doing what ever they please including cheating on test and lying. Cheating has its advantages and disadvantages but at the end of the day cheating is bad and no one should never do it .
