Fitness to practice meeting for Collusion. Please help!Watch
Now there were mitigating circumstances of course, mainly feelings from my parents divorce which have plagued me for the last year, combined with the covid-19 lockdown, the bottled up feelings began to give me panic attacks and severe anxiety. Also learning of my cousin (Like a favorite sister to me) who was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in December, and the threat that Covid-19 posed to her. It all came to a boiling point in the final hour of my exam, where I hadn't answered 5/30 questions. In my state of panic, and heightened anxiety, I foolishly asked my friend to allow me to copy her answers. It's something I've regretted since the moment I submitted the paper.
I am prepared on receiving a 0 for that module. What I am scared about is the fitness to practice meeting. I hope they don't see me as someone who is dishonest, it was a moment of madness. I have a clean academic record prior to this, and have studied at the uni for 4 years, again a long time with no previous mark on my record.
Is there anyone who can help me with the fitness to practice, e.g what to expect, how to persuade them I am fit to practice, if there are any other cases of collusion leading to fitness to practice meetings and what happened to them?
