Write about an incident in which a classmate of yours was caught cheating during a class test. What happened to her ?
 
Mei is a lazy student. One day, her father warned her that if she did not pass her next monthly tests, he would stop  her dancing lessons. On hearing these words, her heart sank. She just loved dancing and not being able to attend dancing lessons would be like ending her life.

So during the science test, Mei tried to cheat. She hid a piece of paper with answers on it. It was inside her pencil box. She pretended to open the box to take a pencil. Then, she tried to peep at the answers.

It was at that moment our teacher, Puan Salmah, happened to look in her direction. She saw Mei copying answers from the paper. Oh dear! Mei was so engrossed on writing that she did not know our teacher was looking at her. I happened to look up from my test paper and saw Puan Salmah looking at Mei. There was nothing I could do to alert her except wait to see what happened. By then, the class had seen Puan Salmah looking very angry and walking towards Mei.

"Mei! You are cheating! Shame on you!" she shouted. Mei quickly threw the paper on the floor but it was too late. Puan Salmah picked it up. The paper had all the answers for the test. This time very softly she told Mei, "I am giving you a zero for the test. Never cheat during a test again."

Mei was so ashamed and embarrassed. All her classmates were looking at her. She felt like crying. Puan Salmah asked her to take her bag and wait outside. The principal, Mr Chong, called her to the office.

There, he told her, "What you have done is serious. We have phoned your father. He will be coming soon."

Mei's father came ten minutes later. He looked furious. But Mr Chong explained to him. "It is more important to guide our children rather than force them to get good grades. Show them love and care instead of pressuring." As for Mei, she could not stop sobbing in the office. She also made a promise not to cheat during tests again.

After that incident, Mci took her studies seriously. She did constant revision before any test. I must say that she does quite well in class tests. She is getting 55% or 60% for her tests. There is no need for her to cheat during tests again.
