3.30. Applications identified under the UCAS Similarity
3.30.1 Applicants who
are identified under the UCAS Similarity Detection Service will be informed
of this and a subsequent personal statement will be requested
along with a rationale as to the reasons why the application
was flagged. The applicant will be given 14 days in which to
provide an amended statement.
3.30.2 Should an application
fail to provide an amended statement, or provide a statement which
is fundamentally the same as the initial submission their
application will be unsuccessful.
3.30.3 The institution reserves the right
to reject applicants who are identified through the SDS should their rationale
not identify significant mitigating circumstances. There will be no
right of appeal to this decision
