Assume it takes 30 seconds to get into the system and you'd never get caught doing so. 1 = No way, Never. 5 = Absolutely I would.

An academic grade should reflect what the individual has learned, even if an 'exam' isn't the appropriate mechanism to do so.
Having said that, changing a grade does nothing to change the underlying issues: either the individual didn't know the work or they didn't do well on the exam. Giving them a false sense of ability only sets them up for failure later.

And, we already see that in the world with most political appointments; it's not how well you can do the work, it's how well you know the person making the decisions.
