Exam Regulations

Academic Integrity

Academic integrity is fundamental to all scholarly activities, including the examination process. Adheres to the definition articulated by the Centre for Academic Integrity, namely, that academic integrity is made up of the five core values of honesty, trust, fairness, respect and responsibility. Honesty appears in presenting one’s own work and in acknowledging dependence on the words or ideas of another. Trust promotes belief in the value and meaning of an institution’s scholarship . Fairness is embodied in clear standards, practices and procedures. Respect is shown by participating in academic activities to the best of one’s abilities. Responsibility requires one to accept personal accountability for upholding academic integrity. This overview is adopted from the Fundamental Values of Academic Integrity. Policy on Academic Integrity is intended to supplement the policy on Academic Dishonesty presently found in calendars and posted on the web at Academic Integrity.

Breaches of academic integrity are considered entirely unacceptable within the community and the student who commits such an offence runs the risk of a range of sanctions including a failure in the course or a requirement to withdraw from the Institute.

The following are some examples of activities that are prohibited during an exam:

  • impersonating another student,
  • copying from another student,
  • making information available to another student,
  • communicating with another student, or
  • using unauthorized material.

All breaches of academic integrity WILL BE REPORTED in writing by the Chief Proctor to the instructor of the course, the Dean of the relevant Faculty, and the Exams Office.
