Depending on someone during examination is very bad, when you stop reading and start thinking of sitting beside your best friend that is brilliant two things might happen to you;

  1. The supervisor might tell one of you to stand up and move to another sit different from the current sit, then it will remain either him/her or only you in the sit, how then will you be able to copy again from him/her?
  2. It is not adviseable to copy from a friend during exam, if the supervisor noticed that both of you are writing exactly the same thing the story might change.
