For cases of academic misconduct, the penalty is one of the following( whichever is greater):
a) 10 marks off the final course grade, which in most cases translate to a drop of 2 letter grades (e.g. A to B+);or
b) a grade of zero for the assessment component on which the academic misconduct occured.
All instances of academic misconduct will be recorded in school and university registers of academic misconduct, and the penalty for a second or subsequent offense may be greater.
