1. He cheats in the math test.
2. He cheats on the math test.
What's the difference in meaning between the above two sentences?
In the US, the preposition would be "on," but your use of the simple present and the singular test makes it sound like he cheats on the same test, over and over, which is a logistical problem.
He cheated on the math test.
He chests on his math tests.

I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
