ALBERT EINSTEIN

Answers

Albert Einstein is some of the best-known scientists of the
twentieth century. Yet he was not the particularly good student.
At school in Munich, he got reasonable grades in nearly all
subjects, and was outstanding in mathematics and physics, but
he disliked doing that he was told. He didn't like exams and nor
did he like attending classes because he left school early.
Despite failure the entrance exam, Einstein was eventually
admitted to the federal Institute of Technology in Zurich in 1896.
Although he did fairly well like a student in Zurich, after
graduation he was unable to get a job in a university, mainly
because he was thought being extremely lazy. Instead, he
worked in a secondary school where he taught mathematics and
physics, both of them he was good at.
Some two years later, in 1902, Einstein has got a job at the
Swiss patent office in Bern. In 1905, his special theory of
relativity was publishing - one of the greatest intellectual
achievement in the history of human thought.

CHEATING IN EXAMS
A.

This happened when I was about 14 years old. The last exam of the year was history, which had
always been my worst subject. I was useless at remembering dates and people’s names so I
decided to write the dates and names of the important events we’d studied on the inside of my
arm and then wore a jumper to cover it up so noone could see. Unfortunately though, it was a
really hot day. I really wanted to take my jumper off but I couldn’t. I realized after about ten
minutes that there was no way I would be able to look at what I’d written without the teacher
seeing and I just wished I hadn’t done it. I felt so hot and uncomfortable and was really worried
about the teacher seeing and catching me that I didn’t do very well in the test at all. I was too
distracted. I think I probably would have got a better result if I hadn’t tried to cheat. I learnt a good
lesson though.

B.

My friend and I had the same surname so we always ended up sitting next to each other, or one
behind the other, in exams at school. We worked out this system where we would pass a piece of
paper to each other with the answers to the questions. Sometimes we just passed it by hand if we
were sitting close enough and other times we’d throw it on the floor for the other person to pick
up. It was quite a good system and I’m sure we both got higher marks. Unfortunately, a teacher
did see us doing it once. I was just leaning down to pick up a paper my friend was passing back
to me when a teacher appeared out of nowhere and picked it up first. There was no way we could
deny what we were doing, it was so obvious. The teacher didn’t say anything until the end of the
exam and then when she collected our papers she wrote a big zero at the top. We didn’t do it
anymore after that, it had been good before but we decided it wasn’t worth the risk.

C.

I used to always cheat in my maths exams when I was at school. We were allowed to take a
calculator with us into the exam and I used to write all the important formulae that we were
supposed to remember on the inside of the calculator case. I did it lots of times. I don’t regret it at
all. I was quite good at maths anyway but I’m sure I got better results as a result of cheating. In
other exams like chemistry and physics, I sometimes wrote notes on bits of tissue then pretended
I needed to blow my nose and looked at my notes during the exam. It worked really well. There
was only one time I was almost caught; I dropped the tissue on the floor by accident just as a
teacher was walking past. He was about to pick it up when my friend, who had also seen what
had happened, deliberately knocked over his water bottle. The teacher was so busy clearing up
the water I think he forgot about me. If you’re clever enough to work out a way to cheat and not
get caught then I think you deserve to get good marks. It’s like that in the real world; if you can do
something more easily and with less hard work then you will. Why not?
Trang 4 / 6


D.

I’ve never cheated in an exam and really don’t see the point. I mean sooner or later people will
find out if you know something or not. If you cheat to get better results then you’re lying to
yourself as well as to everyone else. Rather than spending your time thinking of really clever and
original ways to cheat without anyone realizing, you should just spend that time studying. I’m sure
it will help you a lot more in the long run. A friend once tried to read my answers in an exam while
pretending to pick something up off the floor. As soon as I realized I covered my work so he
couldn’t see. He was quite annoyed with me afterwards but I didn’t think it was fair that he should
do well because of my hard work.
