Plagiarism: are things really this bad?

Writing about web page http://www.thes.co.uk/current_edition/story.aspx?story_id=2028616

It is a small survey but even if anywhere near accurate, it is frightening:

One in six students admits to copying from friends and one in ten confesses to looking for essays online, the most extensive poll ever conducted on student cheating in universities has revealed.

Is it really this common? Or should we be pleased that only 1 in 10 is looking for online essays?

I’d say its pretty accurate…

COMMENT:

I’ve certainly had my work copied (well ok stolen!) before so I’d say it was pretty common! But do people really look for essays on the internet? surely you’d get found out for that one!
