Procedures for handling unfair practice in examinations

Information on handling cases of suspected academic malpractice can be found in the document 'Academic Malpractice: Guidance on the Handling of Cases'.

Regulation XVII 'Conduct and Discipline of Students' makes it clear that cheating ("the possession of unauthorised material or the use or attempted use of unauthorised or unfair means (including academic malpractice such as plagiarism or collusion with other students or fabrication or falsification of results) in connection with any examination or assessment") renders a student liable to disciplinary proceedings. 

For further information about the procedure for handling unfair practice in examinations, please see Regulation XVII 'Conduct and Discipline of Students'.
