    What's the punishment for plagiarism?

    Let's say, hypothetically, someone uses another classmate to write part of their assignment for them. Is this considered a no-no, and if caught, what is the punishment and who will be punished? Both students, or just the one who used the latter to do part of the assignment? What would the process be? Would the parents know?

    Re: What's the punishment for plagiarism?

    That is academic malpractice, subject to academic punishment ranging from a zero to being denied your HSC for that subject to being expelled - it's what your school deems fit for the offence and how it came about. Both could be punished if the person who wrote it did so with intent.

    The process is irrelevant because you shouldn't even be considering academic malpractice.
