Unfair advantage

Taking unfair advantage is a very serious issue which undermines the basis of university study or work. It happens when a candidate uses improper means to try and improve their result. This can be in a number of ways, for example:

  • plagiarism
  • collusion
  • falsifying or making up experimental or other results
  • taking unauthorised material into an examination
  • getting someone to write assessed work
  • copying from someone in an exam
