I am feeling bad about my behavior and want to confess to you that I have done cheating in my project.
I know you hate cheating and don’t accept dishonesty. But as I was out of station for one week, I had no time to complete my project and therefore had submitted my friends projects which is not done by me. I am ashamed for the same.
I hope you accept my apology and give me last chance. I have great respect for you and cannot cheat on you. I assure you it will not be repeated again.
Sorry once again and thank you for your time, hope to hear from you soon.
