    MEC_AMO_TEM_034_01 Page 5 of 8
    I. If a student is caught first time in an act of plagiarism during his/her course of study in
    any assignment other than project work, the student will be allowed to re-submit the
    assignment once, within a maximum period of one week. However, a penalty of
    deduction of 25% of the marks obtained for the resubmitted work will be imposed.
    II. Period of re-submission: The student will have to re-submit the work one week from the
    date he or she is advised to re-submit.
    III. If the re-submitted work is also found to be plagiarized, then that assessment will be
    awarded a zero mark. Re-submission of the work beyond the maximum period of one
    week will not be accepted and the assessment will be awarded a zero mark.
    B. Second offence of plagiarism
    If any student is caught second time in an act of plagiarism during his/her course of study (in a
    subsequent semester), the student will directly be awarded zero for the work in which plagiarism
    is detected. In such cases, the student will not be allowed to resubmit the work. A warning of
    suspension shall be issued, and student has to sign an undertaking and undergo counselling
    session in such cases.
  15. Malpractice/Ghostwriting/Collusion
    A. First offence of Malpractice/Ghostwriting/Collusion
    If a student is caught in an act of Malpractice/Ghostwriting/Collusion for an assessment
    component irrespective of coursework or end semester, the student shall fail the module
    and shall be required to re-register the module
    B. Second Offence of Malpractice/Ghostwriting/Collusion
    If a student is caught a second time in an act of Malpractice/Ghostwriting/Collusion for
    an assessment component irrespective of coursework or end semester, the student
    shall fail the module. A warning of suspension shall be issued, and student has to sign

    appropriate decision. The penalty that can be granted to a proven case of academic integrity violation
    which falls in this category of “other cases” can be a warning/component zero/ module
    fail/suspension/expulsion depending on the nature and gravity of the offence.
  19. Types/Variations of Cases:
    I. If plagiarism is detected in any component of one assessment, the deduction in marks will be
    applicable for the whole assessment, even if only the component or part submission alone needs
    to be resubmitted.
    II. If plagiarism is detected in a group assessment, all students of the group will be considered as
    having committed an act of plagiarism and the policy will then be applied to all students
    III. If plagiarism is detected in any component of a group assessment, the deduction in marks will be
    applicable for the whole assessment even if only the component or part submission alone needs
    to be resubmitted.
    All students of the group would be considered as having committed an act of plagiarism and the
    policy will then be applied to all the students of the group.
    IV. If the assessment consists of components or part submissions that could be a group assessment
    component (e.g. group assignment) and an individual assessment component (e.g. individual
    reflection), the following will be applicable:
    a. If plagiarism is detected in the group assessment component, all students of the group
    will be considered as having committed an act of plagiarism, The policy will then be
    applied to all students of the group. Group assessment component will be resubmitted
    as per the policy.
    b. If plagiarism is detected in the individual assessment component, the individual
    assessment component will be resubmitted and the policy will then be applied to that
    student alone.
    c. For both (a) and/or (b), the deduction in marks will be applicable for the whole
    assessment.
  • for further details Refer to MEC Student Academic Integrity Policy in Student Handbook.
  1. Late Submission Regulations:
    It is the students’ responsibility to check all relevant timelines related to assessments.
    As per the Assessment Policy at MEC, late submissions are allowed for one week (5 working days)
