It is normal to feel nervous when taking an exam, whether at school or university. However, time becomes more and more pressing as the time to return it draws near. In these cases, there are actions that show what real friendship between classmates is, although this is not really very correct.
An example is the video shared on TikTok by Ale Flores, which showed the precise moment a student helped his friend in the middle of an exam.
Flores shared the video on his @ale_flores1407 account: the footage shows the exact moment a student completes an exam, but before handing in the answer sheet, he decides to share it with his friend. With his arms behind his back in a waiting position, the young man turns over the completed sheet and lets his friend copy all the answers that he obviously has trouble finding. It seems that the young man does not care about the consequences that this gesture could entail: he took risks to give a hand to his friend.
Many students might object to this move: after all, copying is the easiest solution for lazy students, but there are also those who feel insecure in exams, even though they have studied like it should be.
The TikTok video has reached over 8 million views. What’s more, the action of the two young students aroused the nostalgia of users who thought back to their school years. “It reminded me of when I used to do it to my classmates! Actually, they weren’t all my friends, but I never paid attention to it. I always helped people in the need in these situations,” one girl wrote. “He’s not a friend: he’s a brother, keep him around you!” Commented one user.
What do you think ? Did you appreciate the altruistic gesture or do you disapprove of these actions despite the good intention?
