The first prize of Peiwen Prize of BeijingUniversity is suspected to be a copy. It is a great contest and has a greatinfluence among students in universities of China. It has already been focusedby media and many students in China. People raised two questions. Why did thestudent do it? How could a copy one pass a strict check?
Actually, copying others’ works inuniversity is quite a common thing in China to finish their assignments orpapers. They can finish their tasks without thinking in this way. Looking atthe reasons behind, you’ll see that those who try to copy others’ works arelack of honesty and are not qualified enough to take their majors.
Firstly, dishonesty is spreading not only in an exercise now but in thework of their future, which might terribly ruin their lives. In China fromprimary school to university, quite few schools give exams without monitoring.In other words, when there is an opportunity to cheat some of the students willdo it. We are taught to be honest since we get schooling, but many of thestudents cheat in the exams, even in this big contest of writing. What does itimply? Our education is not successful. Dishonesty like a disease can infect.Those who successfully do it once, they want another one. Besides, this badbehavior will bring bad effect on others, even to the community.
Secondly, as a student, you should finish the tasks your teachersassign. It is your job. Try your best to learn. No one will be blamed when hedoes his best. When you are busy, tell your teacher that you might have adelay. If you cannot complete a simple task yourself, how can you do a furtherstudy in your major? How can we expect you will have a great achievement in thefuture?
Do you have any ideas about it?
