No degree for student who copied from the internet
ThisisLondon: A new row over exam cheating erupted today after a student was told he would get no marks for his essays because he copied them from the internet.
The University of Kent at Canterbury has told 21-year-old Michael Gunn he will leave with nothing after a three-year English literature-course - except £11,000 in debts. But he has hit back, accusing the university of allowing him to complete three years of study and giving good marks for the essays it now says are worthless. He is planning to sue the university in the hope of recovering some of his student debt.
