It’s not a secret for anyone, that a student willing to cheat on a test or exam is likely to be very inventive. No wonder that even automatic plagiarism checkers cannot scare them. Why? The Unicheck team found out that one of the simplest tricks played by a great many cheaters is character replacement.
Before submitting an essay only few students run an essay check for plagiarism to make sure they don’t have text duplications, unless it is obligatory. The rest doesn’t even bother and as a result faces unpleasant consequences, because educators tend to check student works for plagiarism and punish the guilty ones. Even if students didn’t mean cheating, accidental plagiarism is still an offense.
