Abstract
During the past decade, problems concerning cheating among students have become increasingly apparent in schools and academic institutions. Academic cheating is not a new phenomenon, but a well-known problem in many countries, as well as in the India. Cheating likes to use any means to achieve an unfair and unjust privileges that include: lying, concealing the truth, deceive, deceit and violation of trust (Romney & Steinbart 2003). Academic cheating has become a serious problem at schools and colleges. Academic cheating is defined as representing someone else’s work as your own. It can take many forms, including sharing another’s work, purchase a term paper or test in advance, paying another to do the work for you. The main purpose of this paper is to predict academic cheating, based on some factors (home environment, peer pressure, school environment, academic anxiety, learning style). Parents and teachers may also increase pressure on their kids when they compare them to their siblings. This paper conveys the contribution of teacher, parents and academic integrity to fight against academic cheating.
