I have a question.
I’m a second year student and was charged with Academic Dishonestly last year, as a friend of mine and I were working on an assignment together and we had the same paper, except in our own words. I was charged and did not pass the course, as they took off the marks for the full assignment.
This year, I took a sociology course and for my “make-up” tutorial assignments, I did not cite the quotes that I had taken off the Internet. I was so sure that I could only put arguments into the paper and submit it.
I am now under review for plagiarism.
Do you think I will get suspended from school for a period of a year or two?
I have an answer.
Well no. First, I have a question. How could you not cite your quotes?
I mean really.
But whatever. What’s done is done, and well, considering your past… yeah, I do think you might end up with a suspension. The university takes academic misconducts very, very seriously, and the fact that you’ve already been to OSAI once before doesn’t help your situation in the least. You should probably head over to your registrar’s office as soon as possible so they can lay down how grave this situation is to you, but honestly, harsh as this may be, you probably will face some sort of punishment.
For now, I recommend just putting the matter aside since you’re already under review and can’t really do anything about it. Just focus on your other classes and those assignments because a few good grades are really going to help if this class with the plagiarism goes south for you.
