The girl in question repeatedly texted me last week for help on her 2nd assignment, as in basic questions, 'what do I do, I don't understand the question, can you break it down for me?, blah, blah , blah.'
It led to a conversation at about 1 hour before the deadline was for submission , with her asking for a copy of my essay, so she could use it 'as a guide'.
I refused and told her no, due to a risk of being seen as being plagiarised. She replied telling me her tutor had said not only was it ok, but it was required for students to share essays to 'collaborate'. I just turned my phone off.
The next day, we were at school and one of the maths cohort asked me if I had checked my phone. I turned it on, and she said 'I have left, as I have been disrespected at the school. We shouldn't have to put up with this and I am disgusted. We need to stand together and not put up with this. I am down the library'. This did get a laugh of amazement from me, as walking out of placement is suicide, the Uni will back us up, but they can't support us if we act unprofessionally.
Anyways, we had a meeting after school and the Placement Mentor was seething.
The next day, she turned up to school and got asked to leave. Another group text, blaming us for not backing her up and getting her in trouble.
Anyway, the Uni have kicked her off the course. Absolutely madness behaviour of this girl.
