It is a natural and beneficial part of the educational experience for students to discuss their work with each other and to incorporate ideas from many sources into their work. However, there is an important difference between an acceptable use of other people's ideas and copying or sharing other people's work without attribution.
For assessment to be fair, the extent to which submitted work is your own must be clear. You must not plagiarise other people's work, presenting it as your own.
Plagiarism is a serious offence. It is often easy to detect. The School will use a number of detection methods to screen coursework. When plagiarism is detected, penalties appropriate to the problem will be applied, the Head of School will be informed as well as the College of Science and Engineering, and your academic record may be amended permanently.
Deliberately allowing your own work to be copied undermines the assessment process. Where there is collusion between students, all students involved may be penalised or disciplined.

The timetable for University exams is maintained by Registry. The Registry exam diet page will tell you when the exam timetables have been published; there are different timetables for December and April. Once the timetable is available, you will need to search for Informatics 1 exams. The easiest method is to select School of Informatics from the drop-down list, and then enter Informatics 1% (where % is the wildcard symbol) in the search box.
Please note the following warning on the Registry page:
Changes can occur to the timetable therefore please ensure that you recheck your exam details immediately prior to your examination(s).
