The overall unit grade for a successfully completed repeat unit is capped at a Pass for that unit. Units can only be repeated once. For Academic Malpractice: (Plagiarism and Collusion) In order to achieve a BTEC qualification, you must produce your own work. You will not be allowed to: 1. Copy and paste from textbooks. 2. Copy and paste from the Internet. 3. Copy from other students (past or present). Any act of plagiarism or collusion will be seriously dealt with according to the center regulations. In this context, the definition and scope of plagiarism and collusion are presented below: Plagiarism is presenting somebody else’s work as your own. It includes copying information directly from the Web or books without referencing the material; submitting joint coursework as an individual effort. Collusion is copying another student’s coursework; stealing coursework from another student and submitting it as your own work. If you copy the work of the above you will risk having your own work cancelled and may achieve nothing. If you lend your work to others, you will also risk having your work cancelled. If you take another student’s work and copy it, the exam board may cancel all of your courses. Good practice Make backup of your work in different media (hard disk, memory stick, etc.) to avoid distress due to loss or damage of your original copy. For more information, please check the student handbook.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
