Having trouble finding success in school? Cheating remains the easiest and overall most effective way to utilize items laying around the house. Achieving exemplary grades in high school continues to cause unease for students. So forget studying, leave the anxiety behind, and say hello to straight A’s with these beneficial cheating DIY’s.


DIY #1: The Slick Selfie Stick Pic

Selfie sticks grew popular in 2015, but recently lost user interest. Why not test your selfie skills with this convenient cheating DIY?

What you will need:

  1. A selfie stick (I purchased mine at rue21 for $7.99)
  2. A cell phone with a built-in camera (mine is a Rose Gold IPhone 6S listed at $749.00 on Apple.com)


  1. Try to stay as quiet as possible when pulling your selfie stick out of your backpack when the test begins.
  2. Slowly and silently, begin extending the telescopic wand.
  3. Proceed to position the extended telescopic wand to face the front camera over your shoulder.
  4. Quickly and precisely press the selfie stick button at the bottom of the wand (make sure your phone remains on vibrate so no sound will draw attention to you).
  5. Finally, take your picture and copy the answers!
Selfie sticks make the perfect cheating tool.
