Life hacks have been a trend on social media for quite a while. However, such hacks have been taken to the extreme as video clips showing techniques for cheating in exams gained popularity.
Twitter user Lance (@BornAKang) shared one such creative technique with the caption “This is expert cheating.”
A person can be seen calmly fiddling with a pen in the short clip before the angle changes to show a pencil pouch. Inside the pouch, a collection of multi-colored pencils and pens are seen.
To the viewer’s amazement, the collection of pens turns out to be the screensaver of a mobile phone that was concealed in the pouch. The individual was apparently using it to cheat.
When the person taps on the screen, the screensaver changes to the phone’s photo gallery containing test answers.
The viral video clocked more than 3.9 million views and more than 1 lakh likes.

The comment section of the video post was full of praise for the smart trick. Some called it “Smart”, while others termed it to be “expert-level cheating”.
“You gotta be smart to cheat. It’s almost as hard work as just putting in the work to not cheat,” one user noted.
Another added, “Wow it’s easier to study than to come up with this creativity”.
