    Hey guys, my boyfriend got accused of plagiarism this year, and his coursework was submitted with a notification of possible plagiarism (or whatever it's called, i'm unsure, it was a long form). I just wondered if anyone knew if he would have heard by now, if it came back that it was/wasn't plagiarism. I've found several "procedures" online, which say the school should inform you of the outcome.

    His exam board was AQA. All of his a levels were taken through this exam board too.

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place it's just we're stressing out and were wondering.

    And good luck to everyone getting results! I was in your position last year and it was not fun

    Btw I know all of the possible outcomes I was just wondering if he would have been notified by now regarding the news.

    Thanks!

    The school should certainly have passed on the decision from the exam board

    In my experience the exam boards usually will make decisions within a week

    Ahh okay. Stupid college :/

    I'll try and encourage the "no news is good news" approach.

    Thanks for your help!

    How would that help? Someone else being found guilty/innocent will have no effect on your own cheating.
