I am talking a neurology class which is really difficult and we only have one exam which is cumulative. The professor posts the exam online and tells us to be honest and take it "on our honor" at home. The problem is that people in class take it together and use the book. (We had her for other classes and that is what they did)
During her past exams from her other classes, I took the exam on my own but I had to open the book because her exams were really heard. I do feel guilty for opening the book and I don't want to do that anymore But the class that is ahead of us tells us that it is impossible to pass this test without using the book. She uses 3 books for the class and she gets questions from detailed parts in the book.
It is not fair that people in class take it together and end up doing well. She ends up not curving the grades because some people do really well while me and my friends who decided to take it on our own don't do that well in her exams.
Anyway, I don't want to cheat and use the book in this up coming exam but I know that it is not possible from me to pass it without using the book and I don't know what to do. I feel like I have to chose between God and school (sin vs doing the right thing). I am really worried.
We talked with another professor who was co teaching the class with her from one of our previous classes, and she told us that it was okay for us to use the book; however, they say that you should not use the book when giving directions on how to take the test. So they tell you not to use the book but they know that it is hard to pass the exam without using the book. It is kind-off complicated. Anyway, I am soo tired of dealing with this professors exams and I don't know what to do. Please pray for me to do the right thing and at the same time pass the class.
Sorry for the long post. I hope what I wrote makes sense. Thank you for reading it. Any advice on what I should do would be appreciated. Thanks
