No, no, no, no, no. At least give her a fail on the paper. This way she gets away with it. I know this is a comic strip, but my son was in a similar situation, but he admitted his wrongdoing immediately and only got an F for the test (he was trying to use a calculator on an AP math test, which he didn’t really need). If he had tried to shift the blame, he would have flunked the class. And I was in complete agreement with the teacher.
