The scantron machines grade your test in the following manner. It takes the maximum number correct from the answer key, say 20. Then for each incorrect answer, it subtracts one from that total. Tt only subtracts if there’s a mistake recorded. That is why malfunctions lead to either no markings, or perfect scores. The list below can help you create these malfunctions.

1. Marking the black lines (Black on Black method)- On the left side of most scantrons that I know of, there are black lines next to question numbers. My hypothesis is that these black lines tell the machine where to scan. I don’t know how it works, but it does, but not as often to create a great advantage. It works about 25%-30% of the time. I suppose coupled with actual guessing, this does add to the probability of getting a correct answer. This is my recommended hack. This is the hack that will work more often than any other. Do it only on the ones you can’t answer.

2. Erasing the same black lines (Erase method)- Now this hack is pretty self-explanatory. You erase those same black lines, only on the ones you can’t answer though. Sometimes the machine skips the question and doesn’t mark it at all. This leaves you with a correct answer.


The machine will record an error and not mark the paper at all, including the score. This will then allow the teacher to grade it by hand, where he or she may notice the tampering.

3. Erasing the big black block (Big block eradication method)- Along the left side is a big black block. It is on the upper part of the column before the question lines. Occasionally, the machine will just skip over the whole damn thing but leave you with a 100%. This is practically impossible to get to work. I have gotten it to work twice out of hundreds of trials, but it can be done. My reasoning for this is because there is another similar block at the bottom of the column. I believe that the big block tells the machine when to begin scanning for questions. I think that variations in the printing of scantrons probably produce a block on the bottom similar enough to the erased block. Thus, the machine sees the block begins scanning, sees nothing to correct and gives you a 100%. Like I said this is probably less than 1% success, but it can work.

4. Cutting out that big block (Hole in your head method)- I have had more success with this than erasing for some reason. Again this is an all or nothing proposition. If you like gambling, go ahead. Remember that you will leave more noticable physical evidence.

5. Cross-hatching fill-ins (Cross method)- This method works about 20%-25% of the time. I believe it is pretty self-explanatory. I find that the best patterns are diaganol cross-hatches, or horizontal lines. I can’t explain why this works, I assume you are simply confusing the machine.

6. In-between shading (Grey areas method)- By in-between shading, I mean finding a level of grey that is not too dark or too light. I believe this will work because of the same reason as #5.


9. “The only way to fool many of the kinds to to fold the edge over or cut it off. But the the machiene will pass it trough unmarked, and the teach will probably notice”

10. Putting a piece of tape over the black lines (Tape method) – This just does what chapstick was supposed to do… screw up the scanning light… and jack up everything… what you need to HOPE it does, is pray that it makes the scantron machine malfunction, and not mark it incorrect. Best of luck… I hate this method.

    This is stupid cause your gonna get caught even if you get a perfect score cause they’re gonna check for these techniques.

    “coupled with actual guessing, this does add to the probability of getting a correct answer”
    No, no it doesn’t. Guessing drastically reduces your chances of getting it right. Say there are ten questions and 4 choices per question. If you guess on all of them, your chances of getting a 100 percent are .000095%. Now if you were to eliminate some answers and just make “educated guesses” out of 2 choices per, your chances of getting a 100 are .097%. Not great, but a hell of a lot better

    7 is probably the one that works the most, and is probably off for a reason… @Jocelynn

    My guess is #7 is putting chapstick on the black lines lol.

    Number 8 is the way to go. I use it all the time, and get a perfect 100% :D

    This is the top result when you google “cheat on scantron”, copied and pasted word for word.

    lots of times the author says “I’ve gotten it to work a few times…” so did he fail every other time? XD
