Abstract

Although examination- tips seeking is common, its impact on students’ academic achievement has received little attention. This paper is the first attempt to focus on this relationship between examination tips and student achievement using primary data collected at a university in Hong Kong (China). The grading model (Correa and Gruver (1987) and Bonesronning (1999)) was modified for the purposes of this study by introducing rent-seeking students who devote effort in seeking examination hints from teachers. The estimation result shows that the real achievements of students who are exposed to tips are significantly lower.
