Professional presentation, legibility and logical/legal reasoning, with correct application of legislation and cases are part of the assessment. Similarity reports are generated when assignments are submitted. If you receive a high similarity report, you may re-submit your assignment as many times as necessary until the deadline (note: when you re-submit an assessment, it may take 24 hours for a new similarity report to be issued). Re-submissions after the deadline will count as late submissions and will be penalised in accordance with the Late Submissions Policy (see below).
Academic Integrity: All assignments are electronically checked for plagiarism and collusion. Assignments are also checked for contract cheating (where a student submits an assignment which is not of their own authorship, e.g.: purchase of assignments through specialised websites). Suspected cases of academic misconduct will be reported to the Academic Integrity Adviser for the appropriate measures. Please refer to the Academic Integrity policy please see SLG for details.
