1 Aim of the mock assessment The mock assessment forms an integral part of the ACCT211 module offered in the School of Accounting, Economics and Finance. The aim of the mock assessment is to give students the opportunity to practice an assessment in terms of the topics that are covered in ACCT211. It is vital that students use the mock assessment as a method to display their competence and understanding of the ACCT211 topics. Students are encouraged to apply their knowledge to the mock assessment scenario and provide their best original submission.
1.2 Plagiarism Students may not include in the mock assessment any quotations from another writer, or adopt substantial ideas from another writer, without acknowledgement and without reference to the source of the quotation. Direct quotations must be indicated by the use of quotation marks. Plagiarism will lead to the mock assessment being failed. All students must run their mock assessments through the “TurnItIn” software which scans the mock assessments for plagiarism. Sentences or paragraphs copied from other sources without acknowledging the source will not be accepted. Should students be found to submit mock assessments that are highly correlated / copied / similar; BOTH students will be awarded a mark of ZERO for the mock assessment.
