Synopsis

As if writing exams weren’t stressful enough, Vice-Principal Abu Nawaf shows up during today’s Arabic test, and because of a misunderstanding, Suleiman is accused of cheating – and is given a zero mark on his paper. Rectifying the situation proves rather more difficult than expected, however. Part morality tale, part gentle comedy, ‘I Wasn’t Cheating’ takes us all back to those tense days of academic success.
