Cambridge students 'plagiarising'
A recent poll carried out at the prestigious Cambridge University in the UK showed that nearly half of all students there admitted to plagiarism. In the age of the internet, it seems that plagiarism has become copmmonplace amongst university students.
Almost half of students admitted to plagiarism in a poll carried out by a students' newspaper at the University of Cambridge.
The Varsity newspaper reported that students admitted to copying material found on the internet and submitting it as their own.
The survey also claimed that only one in 20 students had been caught.
The University of Cambridge says that it has policies in place to prevent this serious disciplinary offence.
