University students who are caught submitting plagiarised work are very rarely expelled, shows a survey. A study found only 143 students caught cheating were expelled out of 9,200 cases - despite almost all universities threatening expulsion as a sanction.
I know this goes on, from experience. Students are allowed to progress to 'fill up' the following year. No consideration given to the students who are being asked to waste another year, out off their depth. All done for financial reasons.
I am glad to say that most businesses are catching on, with applicants qualifications and ability being strictly tested at interview.
