Plagiarism

Could all Year 13 students please ensure that they are using their own words in diagrams and research analysis? Otherwise you must put other people’s words into quotation marks and acknowledge that they are not your own words. The examiner will be looking for plagiarism, so don’t give them any to find. There is nothing wrong with looking at past work and using it as a guide; there is everything wrong with cutting and pasting other people’s work. The same is true of information that you find on the internet. You all know this.

The above also applies, in equal measure, to Year 12 students. This is particularly the case for the research work you doing for Mr Howells at the moment.
