throughout the course. Students are also encouraged to enrich their knowledge by searching the Web and making use of any reference library with a view to doing course assignments independently.• • It is vitally important that students use their tutors as support and as a resource. 11 .

  Candidates missing more than 20% of the lectures will receive “F” grade in the course. Please arrive in time 12 .

 Plagiarism is an offence. development tools and program syntax errors. 13 . Exam candidates attempting to gain an unfair advantage or colluding in anyway whatsoever are liable to be disqualified.  These are not honour violations and you can learn a lot from your colleagues in the course. However it is ok to cooperate with your colleagues to help them to resolve problems with things like operating the computers.
