Exam misconduct


Exam misconduct occurs when a student attempts to cheat by:

  • having someone else sit the exam for them
  • sharing current exam questions and answers online, or searching for and copying exam answers online
  • bringing technology or other items into the exam which are not allowed
  • gaining assistance or giving assistance to other people during the exam
  • using additional, unapproved software or technology in an online exam

These behaviours are not acceptable, and penalties will apply.
