PLAGIARISM is not rampant among university students in the country, said parliamentary secretary to the Education Ministry Datuk Mahadzir Mohd Khir. 

He said most of them were isolated cases which involved using the course work of other students and reproducing project papers. 

“The students are given briefings on plagiarism and the penalties against culprits,” he said to a question from Tan Sri Dr Ting Chew Peh (BN – Gopeng). 

He said that there was a post-graduate committee to review all dissertation and project papers. 

“There is also a database on projects done by students for reference,” he added.  

At a press conference later, Mahadzir said universities were always reminded to preserve their good names and maintain standards.
