How To Pass Any Exam Without Studying

Yes, it happens: you just didn’t learn, you couldn’t learn, you didn’t have time because you were working or just slacking off. We will not scold you.

How To Pass Any Exam Without Studying

We’d rather tell you what you can do when the session is about to begin or has already begun, and you haven’t studied anything.

It is simply impossible to imagine that a person could not say anything at all about the subject he is taking.

He is not an alien, he lives in society, went to at least one lecture (okay – let’s say, did not go, but at least heard what classmates talk about), looked through the textbook. The latter is never too late, even a couple of hours before the exam.

You can try to learn at least one topic. Just one! Then, as in the joke, whatever ticket you get, you can talk about it. But seriously, the tickets are a lot of related topics, while you memorize one, you are sure to get into the other.

If you have at least a little conscience and responsibility, you can in a short time overcome half of the exam topics and accurately answer at least one of the required two questions on the ticket. And that’s a guaranteed C.

If there are three topics, the last one is usually practical, so the ‘linguistic’ student with minimal knowledge also has a chance to get out.

Have a Full Set of Notes With You

You’ll need lecture notes, worksheets, labs, and any useful materials. The textbook, by the way, is also better to have available, but not in plain sight. It is possible (if they will give it to you) to take someone else’s work. As long as there are some!

First, with notes easier to pass – there is a chance to peek, and many teachers allow it. After all, if a student knows where to find the answer to a question, it means that he/she read the material at least once.

Second, when scoring the examiner will interpret the presence of notes in favor of the student. Many without them do not even want to talk, saying, “You, young man or girl, were not at my lectures, then surely you do not pass.

Write Cribs

Cribs are not only a handy tool during exams, they are an excellent memory trainer. While you write them (preferably in several copies), something will remain in your head.

By the way, most teachers are very loyal to the cribs, some even advise you to write them, and they openly admit that they do not scold you for using them. It is just necessary not to be cheeky.

Modern cribs aren’t just folded up faux-papers, or gouged notes on hands, feet, eyeglass cases, and so on.

Students often come to the exam with several phones (you showcase one at the entrance, the others will be hidden in safe places), wireless headsets, gadgets disguised as ordinary objects with a lot of information, etc.

Also an option! Though very dishonest.

Ask a Friend for Help

During the exam, all the students are friends. Rarely are they not prompted on principle. If you can peek at a neighbor, ask him to share a cheat sheet, or briefly recite the answer to a ticket, it is a sin not to use it.

But remember, with this approach, it is necessary not to turn away when they ask you (we all know people who ask: ‘do my homework for me, please!’ but are not ready to share the homework with you).

Actually, a boomerang will come, karma will work, or rather – the next time no one will want to help the pest.

Put Pressure on Pity

The well-known way of all schoolchildren and students. Maybe the teacher will look at how poor and unfortunate I am, and at least give me a “C”. The most harmless options:

  • Pretend that you are very nervous and are about to faint, have a heart attack, and go into a coma. Girls can cry, shake, and openly take sedatives.
  • Make up a heartbreaking story about why you weren’t prepared and tell it in color.
  • Pregnant students (even in 2-3 months) can often act as if they are about to give birth. Such students are the fastest ones to be let out of the exam, out of harm’s way.
  • Blow up to the size of an elephant any of its shortcomings, a minor problem. Active, loud, demonstrative.


These and other ways, of course, are very sordid, but if nothing at all helps, who will judge if you can apply them? In defense of saying that to implement a good acting ability, creativity, that is, it is already a useful skill, in life will come in handy.

And what ways to pass the exam without preparing, you know?
