If he wanted to help, he could have talked briefly about the project or describe the outlines and not the actual contents. Sam should have reported that he was sick to his unit coordinator and get support or extensions due to his illness if he can provide the medical certificate. Letting the friends copy the work and submit can breach academic integrity. Scenario 2: Mahir should have quoted the words that he copied from online into his work. He committed plagiarism by making others work into his own work. He should have included proper reference of the ideas he used into his work. If he cannot paraphrase to give the exact meaning, he should have quoted the author. This is using others works as your own which is a criminal offence and can face severe consequences. Scenario 3: Rory used images from the internet without reference. This is image plagiarism; he should have used images in his work with proper reference. He could use his own images and drawings. Copying the images, charts, graphs and figures without citing the original source is a plagiarism and it's an academic integrity violation. Scenario 4: Anouska paid for her assignment, and it is a contract cheating. Due to the fear of failure, she committed an offence which breached the academic integrity. If she had issues, she should directly contact her unit coordinator for assistance.

This intimately leads to anxiety and depression and cheating for short cut ways. So it is always better to plan at the beginning than to rush at the last moment.

To avoid these penalties, one should always be aware of these forms of cheating and plagiarism. If student needs help and support and extensions regarding the assignment due to personal/medical problems, they should immediately contact their unit coordinator. It is best to ask for help than to opt the ways of cheating.
