If you use aids that are not permitted according to the examination instructions, it is considered cheating. Examples of prohibited aids include cheat sheets, mobile phones, calculators and textbooks.
Cooperating and communicating with someone when it is not allowed according to the instructions is also an example of cheating.
Suspected cheating will be reported
If a suspected case to deceive during examinations (cheating) is discovered, it must be investigated by the department concerned and, if suspicion remains, reported to the Vice-Chancellor. The case may be dealt with by the University’s Disciplinary Board, which decides on any disciplinary measures.
Disciplinary measures are a warning or suspension from the studies up to six months. The most common disciplinary measure decided when a student has attempted to deceive during an examination is suspension from their studies for six weeks.
