Academic Cheating is a solemn issue in front of academic world. The present study has tried to explore the academic cheating among adolescents with different levels of self control. A representative sample of 300 (150 male and 150 female) adolescents from urban and rural schools of five districts in Haryana was randomly selected. Academic Cheating Scale by Kalia & Kirandeep (2011) and Self Control Scale by Singh & Sengupta (1996) were used to assess academic cheating and self control of adolescents. ANNOVA and t-test was applied to study significant difference in academic cheating among adolescents with different levels of self control.
