You will get no more than 40% for the exam, if you resit it. You could be struck off the course!

if you had failed without cheating you could have done a retake, and if there are personal problems they would probably give you another chance even if you failed that. but cheating a retake is the very best you could hope for, if they show you leniency

That's a pretty good worst case scenario.

It will be a disciplinary hearing, and in all likelihood you're going to be kicked off the course. Focus on damage control, and try to make sure they don't push for your degree to be revoked (Which they're obliged to pursue). If you manage to just get capped at 40% with a retake, consider yourself extremely lucky.


You probably don't need to hear this, but you shouldn't have cheated. How severe was it? What did you do?

Really you need to look at what your university policy on this sort of thing is.

I'd say probably you will just get a zero for that exam and warned not to do it again - depends how you were cheating though.

You need to speak to your personal tutor who will explain your options.

Lol, you're either full of ****, or an idiot. Either way, I have little sympathy.

You'll either fail that exam, but more likely is that you'll have to resit the year or be expelled from the course altogether

You have to check your own university's policy, which should be found on their website.

Well, if you're stressing, probably best not to look at some of the example cases. You have people with PhDs having their entire academic career revoked from cheating on one exam at the most extreme end of the scale, and that's all you'll find reported in the news

Let's try and help you, answer these questions for me:

- Did you mention something about family problems? Did you have some form of mitigating circumstances?

- What university are you at?

- What has been said to you about the situation so far?

- Do the Uni know the phone had notes on it?

yes, more deception will totally help your case :rolleyes:

the chances of you not getting kicked out are pretty slim, and frankly you deserve it

The thing is, universities have proper procedures such as councillors and extenuating circumstances applications which are for cases such as yours where personal or family problems arise. The systems make sure you get a fair chance (e.g. another attempt without marks capped at 40% at a later date) if they are followed properly. By cheating they may not be lenient as you havent been to see a councillor or someone who could put your case across to academic staff etc
