Plagiarism warning

YOUR recent article on the dangers of plagiarism due to services like “Write My Assignments” is a timely warning to those who wish to demote terminal exams like the Junior and Leaving Certificates and introduce more project and assignment-based evaluation.

Our state exams are not flawless, but they offer the best option for maintaining the integrity of results and ensuring that students cannot pass off work done by others as their own.

Allegations that exams place undue emphasis on memorised material can easily be tackled through altering the type and thrust of questioning.

The last thing this country needs is qualifications for sale to those who can afford it.
