Plagiarism is :
The most common form of plagiarism is internet-based , i.e cutting & pasting then modifying the work slightly to camouflage the act and presenting this as your own. If you do this you are stealing the work and ideas of others. You are also attempting to deceive your teachers. Worst of all you can easily deceive yourself into thinking this is OK.

With External Examinations, The student will be disqualified from that particular sitting but this may also result in disqualification from the entire battery of examinations. The school cannot be an advocate for students who have any record of cheating at AISJ.
AISJ has a policy which seeks to encourage the students to hand in their set pieces of work on time. Teachers should use the planner in the staffroom to schedule work so that students are not overburdened at any one time.
If there is a good and attested reason for lateness e.g illness / bereavement, the Head of Secondary will decide how the mark for work is calculated.
