Candidates (including applicants) for all exams are expected to behave in a professional manner throughout their dealings and to conduct themselves as is appropriate. This includes behaviour during the examination, and in all their contact with examiners, invigilators and staff of exam before, during and after the examination.
This Code of Conduct has been developed to provide a framework against which allegations of misconduct related to behaviour will be judged. In the event of any allegation of misconduct National Institute for Health Specialities(NIHS) will undertake an investigation governed by the principles given in the Exam Misconduct Regulations.
Candidates should note that by virtue of applying to sit an examination they are deemed to have understood and agreed to respect and abide by all relevant regulations, including this Code of Conduct.
NIHS regards any attempt to cheat with the utmost seriousness. Academic misconduct includes, but is not restricted to:
Copyright and use of materials: Candidates must not discuss, publish or in any other way attempt to share any material which they have encountered in the examinations administered by NIHS.
Appeals and complaints:
NIHS receives appeals against examination results from candidates, and complaints about the conduct of the examinations. Board is committed to investigating any such cases in a fair and transparent manner in line with the NIHS Examination Appeals Regulations and Examination Complaint Procedure.
It is occasionally necessary to approach candidates for comment on appeals and complaints, and candidates are expected to respond to any such approaches in an open and timely manner.
Candidates should be assured that they have the opportunity to raise matters of legitimate concern, and that making an appeal or complaint will not put candidates in danger of conduct violations.
