Ashlie: Hi, nice to meet you, Jazz.
Jazz: Nice to meet you Ashlie. I have never been here before. I have always wanted to visit London.  
Ashlie: Wow, this is your first visit to London – you’ve never been here before? Well, I’m glad you could come – we’re really looking forward to showing you around.
Stephen: Come on. Let’s get going.
Ashlie: Here, let me help you with this bag. What have you got in here? It weighs a ton.
Stephen: Oh - come on. We need to get a move on.
Ashlie: Stephen’s brought his friend Jazz over to London for a few days. So we’re going to give him a tour of the city and show him the sights.
Stephen: Come on Ash - we need to get to central London for your surprise.
Ashlie: Surprise? What for me? I’ve got a surprise!
.....
Stephen: Hi there.
Cab Driver: Hi.
Stephen: We need to get to the River Thames. Can you take us to Embankment – near the tube station?
Cab Driver: Embankment Station, OK.
Ashlie: Oh no! My bag! Where’s my bag? I can’t believe it… I’ve lost it. Damn it! I’m going to have to go back there and get it.
Stephen: Did you have it with you on the train? Are you sure you had it with you on the train?
Jazz: You had your bag on the train, definitely – you put it on the... err... How do you say that in English?
Stephen: The luggage rack – yeah. Did you put it on the luggage rack, Ash?
Ashlie: You’re right - I’m sure I had it with me on the train. Oh my gosh! My phone! My phone is in my bag. Oh, I’m going to have to go back.
Stephen: But Ashlie, you’ll miss the surprise.
Ashlie: Oh, how annoying! You guys go on ahead and I’ll catch you up later.
Stephen: Are you sure?
Ashlie: Yes, don’t worry. I’ll give you a call later.
.....
Jazz: Oh gosh! This is an amazing city. What is that building over there?
Stephen: Oh, that’s the Royal Albert Hall... I hope we’re going to get there on time.
Jazz: The traffic in London is terrible. Is the traffic always this bad?
Stephen: Ah - you should see it in rush hour. Sometimes it’s quicker to walk. In fact, maybe we should… are you OK with walking?
Jazz: Is it a long way?
Stephen: It’s about ten minutes walk to the flat from here.
Jazz: OK, that’s fine. I think we can manage with these bags.
Stephen: Can you pull over here, please?
......
Stephen: It’s only half an hour to the surprise – we’ll have to hurry.
Jazz: Wait a minute. Wait a minute, wait, I want to take a photo. Wow, I have never seen anything like this before. Where are we? What is this place called?
Stephen: This is Piccadilly Circus. There’s always loads of tourists round here.
Jazz: Wow, I must take a photograph, just one minute.
Stephen: When we get to Trafalgar Square, we can stop for a quick rest. Come on. Jazz…
Stephen: What’s that? It’s a phone. Is that your phone?
Jazz: No.
Jazz: Hey, I don’t believe it. Look what I’ve found! Isn’t this Ashlie’s bag? It’s her phone!
Stephen: What? Oh no! We had it with us all along. Poor Ashlie. I’m going to answer it. Hello?
Ashlie: Stephen?
Stephen: Hello. This isn’t Ashlie – I’m Stephen, I’m Ashlie’s brother.
Ashlie: Stephen!
Stephen: But this is Ashlie’s phone.
Ashlie: What are you doing with my phone?
Stephen: Who’s that?
Ashlie: Stephen it’s me – Ashlie – Where are you?
Stephen: Ash, we’ve found your stuff. We had it was with us all the time.
Ashlie: Oh - I can’t believe I came all the way back here for nothing.
Stephen: Yes, don’t worry we’ve got your bag. Everything‘s safe.
Ashlie: Thank goodness it’s all turned up. I’m so relieved.
Stephen: Right, well get here as quick as you can. We’re going to drop the bags off at the flat.
Ashlie: Great. And thank you!

    Cheating and Plagiarism

    Students are responsible for familiarising themselves with the University Code of Student Conduct, as on enrollment with the University  the student has placed themselves under the policies and regulations of the University and all of its duly constituted bodies. Disciplinary authority is exercised through the Student Conduct Committee. The Committee has procedures in place for hearing allegations of misconduct. Copies of the student conduct code are available at the Student Services Office.
    Academic dishonesty is never condoned by the University. This includes cheating and plagiarism, which violate the Student Conduct Code and could result in expulsion or failing the course.
    Cheating includes but is not limited to obtaining or giving unauthorized help during an examination, getting unauthorized information about the contents of an examination before it is administered, using unauthorised sources of information during an examination, altering or falsifying the record of any grades, altering or supplying answers after an examination has been handed in, falsifying any official University record, and misrepresenting the facts to get exemptions from or extensions to course requirements.
    Plagiarism includes but is not limited to submitting any paper or other document, to satisfy an academic requirement, which has been copied either in whole or in part from someone else’s work without identifying that person; failing to identify as a quotation a documented idea that has not been thoroughly assimilated into the student's language and style, or paraphrasing a passage so closely that the reader could be misled as to the source; submitting the same written or oral material in different courses without obtaining authorisation from the lecturers involved; or 'dry-labbing', which includes obtaining and using experimental data from fellow students without the express consent of the lecturer, utilizing experimental data and laboratory write-ups from other parts of the course or from previous terms during which the course was conducted, and fabricating data to fit the expected results.

    Questions

    Q1 - The Student Services Office familiarises students with the student code.


    Q2 - Cheats will automatically be expelled because their behaviour cannot be condoned.


    Q3 - The text lists all activities that are considered to be cheating.


    Q4 - According to the text, cheating is a more serious offence than plagiarism.


    Q5 - It is never acceptable to paraphrase closely.


    Q6 - Students can submit the same work in different courses as long as they ask their lecturer and it is not their own.


    Q7 - If students want to use other students' laboratory data, they must ask them and the lecturer first.


    Q8 - Data must fit the expected results.
