The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) have provided centres with the following guidance about malpractice.
It is possible that some students may attempt to influence their teachers’ judgements about their grades.
Students might attempt to gain an unfair advantage during the centre’s process by, for example, submitting fabricated evidence or plagiarised work. This would include the use of unauthorised notes or materials, either electronic or hard copy. Such incidents would constitute malpractice and centres must report these to the appropriate awarding organisation.
Students, or individuals acting on behalf of a student, such as parents/carers, might also try to influence grade decisions by applying pressure to centres or their staff. Centres are expected to retain clear and reliable records of the circumstances and the steps taken, and make students aware of the outcome. However, if a student continues to inappropriately attempt to pressure centre staff then centres must to report this to JCQ.
Please be aware that all investigations into alleged malpractice remain confidential and the findings, including any sanctions imposed, are not publicly disclosed.
