In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz ibn ʿAbdullāh ibn Bāz was asked concerning the ruling on cheating in academic exams so long as the teacher is aware of it.

Answer: Cheating is impermissible in exams just as it is impermissible in general interactions and dealings. It is not allowed for any person to cheat in any of his exams in any subject, and if the teacher was pleased with this and thought it was permissible, then he is a partner to his crime and betrayal, and Allāh's help is sought. [Majmūʿ al-Fatāwá Vol. 6 Pg. 498, translated by Abu al-ʿAbbās Mūsá Richardson].
