    Oh, you're not bothering me, so sorry if it came out a bit abrupt. If I knew the answer, I'd be more than happy to help, but I haven't had the training to deal with plagiarism cases at your uni, so you're better off speaking to someone who has.

    What year are you in?
    Thanks for the help! I'm in my first year, this was the first piece of work due in as well :facepalm:

    Just explain that to him, he probably isnt THAT bothered anyway seeing as he seems to have left it for a few days and not done anything straight away.
    My mark was pretty high but it has a "P" through it which stands for Pending according to the lecturer. The other guys in my group just passed except for one other who had a high mark also [higher than myself]. The written work we didn't do as a group for obvious reasons, we just though taking photos of the same building/bridge etc was reasonable.

    I think the best way to prove this is to surely show the lecturer my camera?

    If it's any consolation, what seems to be a minor (if anything) case of plagiarism in the first year isn't likely to get you thrown out of the uni.

    Are they also under investigation?

    That is what I'm most worried about, I won't be working in a group again...

    Are you a fresher also?

    It seems highly unlikely that you'll be thrown out for this. I would think the worst result would end up being given a mark of zero, then capped resubmission or something along those lines. If it does turn out to be plagiarism, the uni want to make sure the rules are clear no, because the repercussions now aren't going to be as serious as somewhere down the line where it could affect your degree.

    No, I'm in my second year.

    Oh ok! I won't bug you anymore with stupid questions... I'm just ****ting myself. It is worth 40% of the coursework and I have another part in for January which is worth 60%.

    Meh. I will ask my tutor tomorrow, do you think I should take my camera along to prove I took my own photos?

    I think a few of the photos look like they have been shared, I haven't given out any images.

    This is why I work alone - no other idiots to deal with (them, not you - like I say, don't mind questions, just wish I had more definite answers for you)...

    Taking your camera along seems like a good idea, but if possible get into the SU and seek advice from them, because like I say, they'll be aware of what's going to happen. This doesn't sound like it's being taken too seriously, but always nice to know.

    You should have been given assessment regulations at the beginning of the year, or they'll be online. What uni do you go to?

    Bristol, all the lecturer said was " you can work in groups, but you must take your own photos"... which I have done! Thanks so much for the advice, I will rep.

    Take a look at these regulations, specifically this part and this part.

    I think it seems likely that it'll be a minor offence and won't get you thrown out.

    And thanks for the rep!

    Probably just get a telling off and a lower mark imo.

    That's all that happened to me and the guy I let copy off me when I got busted for collusion many years ago (not bristol tho) - and it was a lot more blatant than yours by the sounds of things.
