When it comes to marking essays specifically referencing, what do they consider to be errors for deducing not a misconduct case?

Hi beesbebuzzing below are examples of plagiarism that can be linked to referencing:

An academic offence is defined as an act or failure to act that if undetected gives, or aims to give, an advantage over other students, or any behaviour which may deceive those setting, administering and marking a piece of work, including:

Plagiarism, i.e. the act of representing work or ideas as one’s own without appropriate acknowledgement or referencing. For instance:
- Direct copying of text, or illustrations, from a book, article, fellow student's essay, handout, thesis, web page or other source without proper acknowledgement.
- Claiming individual ideas derived from a book, article etc. as one's own, and incorporating them into one's work without properly acknowledging the source of those ideas. This includes, among many other things, insufficiently paraphrasing a source, or altering the material taken from the source so it appears to be one’s own work, or mirroring the structure of the argument of another writer without correct attribution.
(http://as.exeter.ac.uk/academic-poli...ct/#misconduct)

So just make sure that you have cited all the information correctly. It is okay if you miss out a few references, if you missed out all of the references then yes that would be academic misconduct. Academic misconduct however refers more to passing work off as your own that isn't then it does missing a couple references.

I hope this helped.

You would not gain marks of the referencing style is inconsistent or badly formatted, and sometimes markers will be lenient if a reference is missing but the citation is there.

Remember, when your essay is marked, you don't start at 100 marks and gradually lose them, you start at 0.
