So my has been accused of plagiarism on her exam, she's in third year and on her exam questions she got varied percentages of plagiarism, I think the first two questions got around 15% and yhe third question got about 80%. They were all case studies and she didn't think she had to reference them. What is the best approach for her to take when talking to the board?

15% you could probably get away with. The 80% though... Unless she's copied the case study word for word throughout, it might be hopeless finding an excuse

Yeah i think it's so high for that one because that question was asking for a case study so it's a big part of the answer. But I believe she did copy it word for word.
