ACADEMIC DISHONESTY: No cheating during the exams and quizzes are allowed. Cheating includes but not limited to both providing and copying information during the exam and quizzes. It is considered as a discipline violation. Hence in case of cheating, both parts will certainly get a score of zero from the corresponding exam or quiz and disciplinary action will be applied.
