What constitutes as plagiarism?

If you submit an assignment that contains work that is not your own, without indicating this to the marker (acknowledging your sources), you are committing ‘plagiarism’ and this is an offence. This might occur when:

  • Using a choice phrase or sentence that you have come across
  • Copying word-for-word directly from a text
  • Paraphrasing the words from a text very closely
  • Using text downloaded from the internet
  • Borrowing statistics or assembled facts from another person or source
  • Copying or downloading figures, photographs, pictures or diagrams without referencing
  • Copying from the notes or essays of a fellow student
  • Copying from your own notes, on a text, tutorial, video or lecture, that contain direct quotations.

Although you are encouraged to show the results of your reading by referring to and quoting from works on your subject, copying from such sources without acknowledgement is deemed to be plagiarism and will not be accepted by the College. This means that you must make it clear which words and ideas are yours and which have come from elsewhere, through the use of quotation marks as well as in-text citations.

Plagiarism will result in a serious sanction being set, and may even lead to a student being asked to leave the Sixth Form. This is in line with policies from the exam boards and universities.

The e‐mail with the attached document will not be forwarded to the educator!  Good file names could be  btectUnit2A1AndrewLewington.docx
