    My cousin's mate got caught cheating on her PS by UCAS, she got caught with over 50% of it copied (!) and she now has an offer from Reading Uni?! Which is quite a good enough Uni really.

    Are they just thick?!

    Explanations?

    i think the uni's are told by UCAS about the ps being copied but its the uni's decision to accept them or not .. i think..

    The Uni's get told if the PS's are found to be plagiarised but it is up to the Uni's to decide whether to still offer a place or not.

    Ah right... I was thinking more about the specifics, does she get an email/phone call telling her she's been found out etc.

    UCAS contacted her, they showed how many red lines she had plagisried.

    I just can't believe over 50% of it was a copied and quite an established Uni like Readling gave an offer?

    Ludicrious, i mean Reading Uni is not a mug uni.

    Although it shouldn't be the case no matter how tempting

    50% though... That's quite a bit :unsure:
