Plagiarism will be suspected if a substantial part of any submission could be converted to part of another student's by purely mechanical means. Checks for this possibility are routinely made on all submissions and comparison methods are improving all the time. Please note that plagiarism checks may not be conducted until the end of the teaching session in some cases.
Submitting an assignment that has been partially or wholly derived from another person's work, with or without that person's consent, is a serious offence. Be warned that an automatic failure may be awarded if you are caught cheating. In addition, permitting someone else to use your solution as a basis for theirs may result in a mark of zero for your assignment. Repeat offenders may be referred to the Registrar for consideration for exclusion from the University.
This penalty is determined by the lecturer, and may take the form of penalty or failure for the assignment and/ or course, depending on the severity of the offence.
