Points to consider
Copying during exams is like betraying yourself. At this stage of life, you should not start your life with deception. You should face the life straight. Your marks in the exam will not determine the quality of life that you will lead. But with how much uprightness you came up will definitely have a bearing on your life.
Copying in exams is a very small thing to lose on truthfulness and rightfulness. Tomorrow when big things come in your life you will not be able to stand up to them. No problem if you do not score high marks as scoring or less scoring is not all that important in life.
One should aim to enhance his capability and talent. Getting few marks more or less in the exam will not make much of difference in your life. But how much you learn now will make a world of difference in your life. Your grasp on the theoretical and practical aspect of the subject, your focus, and aim of the future are the things that matter the most.
For an exam, it may be ok to eat the book and vomit during the exam, but it is not good for you, the society and the world at large. No one has a pleasant experience of exam fear. During schooling, one should focus on how much you can grasp, utilizing your knowledge, enhancing your capabilities, being competent so that when you step out of school into the real world you can do something rational and worthwhile in your life.
