    Students buying essays for A level exams are getting ripped off.

    A Level students who buy essays online are being ripped off, says exam watchdog.

    Ofqual finds essay writing services are ‘poor quality’ and unlikely to get A-level students who cheat with coursework a good grade.

    Students tempted to use essay writing services that claim to guarantee A-grade papers are more likely to receive shoddy work that would fail an A-level, as well as putting them at risk of being caught cheating, according to the exam regulator Ofqual.

    An investigation by the watchdog found that online services failed to live up to their claims of high-quality writing and research, despite charging up to £220 for an essay. In many cases, essays were riddled with basic writing and composition errors, and received very poor or failing grades from independent examiners.

    Well folks, there you have it in black and white.

    I am sure that many people may have tried to cheat on their "A" level essays by buying them from others, but they always know that cheating in this way carries a big risk - and cost - with a ruined reputation following.

    Don't do it students as you are at high risk of being found out.

    This is a great danger for those that want to try to cheat on their essays.

    I know for a fact that the markers can recognise any essay that has been offered online or by social networking sites.

    Just don't do it as you will not get away with it.

    Yes, as a teacher you should be the one with experience here.

    I know that if an easy answer to essays is available many youngsters will find that hard to resist.

    Me too guys.

    This is blatant cheating and should be treated as such.
