Student Academic Integrity Policy*:MEC upholds the spirit of academic integrity in all forms of academic work and any form of violationof academic integrity shall invite severe penalty. Any benefit obtained by indulging in the act ofviolation of academic integrity shall be cancelled.All cases of violation of academic integrity on the part of the student shall fall under any of the belowmentioned categories:
Other casesIf the student fails a module and has a proven case of academic integrity violation in this module, thestudent is required to re-register the module. This is applicable to first and second offenders ofplagiarism.
PlagiarismA. First offence of plagiarismApplied Mathematics (FNDM AM2.1) – Summer – 20 – CW2 (Assignment) – All – QPMEC_AMO_TEM_034_01 Page 5 of 8I. If a student is caught first time in an act of plagiarism during his/her course of study inany assignment other than project work, the student will be allowed to re-submit theassignment once, within a maximum period of one week.
