Everyone struggles at the end of semester.  Sometimes the stress to meet deadlines or the pressure of sitting exams becomes too difficult for some students.

In the past, this has led students to forge or falsify medical documents and certificates (or purchase falsified documents online) in order to obtain special consideration.  While this may not seem particularly serious, it definitely is.

DO NOT, under any circumstances, forge or falsify medical documents or HPR forms in order to obtain special consideration.  Falsifying documents is considered fraud and treated far more severely than other academic misconduct such as plagiarism.  If you are caught falsifying medical documents for ANY REASON you are likely to have your enrolment terminated.

At the Advocacy Service we can help you with many things, but unfortunately if you are caught with falsified documents we are extremely limited in what we can achieve.  Come and see us BEFORE things get too desperate so that we can help you apply for special consideration or explore other options that might be available to you.

Here are some videos we made a few years ago – English, Mandarin, and Indonesian. Tell your friends, spread the word. DO NOT USE FAKE DOCUMENTS. EVER.
