Plagiarism is a form of cheating in which students use the work of others and present it
as their own. It may include all or any one of the following –
1. Copy extensively from the work of others (from sources such as books,
magazines, journal, websites etc.) and submit the work as your own.
2. Copy another students’ work and submit it for assessment under your own
3. Allow another student to copy your work and then submit it for assessment
under their own name.
What happens if you get caught?
The examining body of CBFS may punish offending students in any manner that they
deem fit. Typical punishments may range from reduction in grades, making students resit modules and even failing students on a module or an entire award. The college
considers this form of cheating as a serious offence. Therefore, be forewarned!
