    It's not work.

    Don't cheat in your exams. It's not work.

    -------------------------------------

    That is what I heard on TV said by a native speaker. My question is:
    It's not work=It does not work?
    Or, it is only acceptable in spoken language?

    Thank you.

    Are you sure the person didn't say "It's not worth it."?

    I went back to view it again. You are right, he did say it's not worth it. Thank you very much.

    Thank you very much. You're welcome.
    You are right; he did say it's not worth it.
    You need a semicolon after "right". You have two independent clauses and there is no conjunction; you can't use a comma.
