According to the Global Times, Creighton University has recently expeled a graduate student from China.  Professor Yuan Jingmei, his tutor, wrote a letter to the student, saying that she shouldn't take him as her graduate student. In the letter, she expressed disappointment about the student's attitude towards doing research.  She also criticized his indifference regarding the issue of plagiarism, for a majority of his papers that appeared to have been copied. An estimate by a U.S. education company shows some 8,000 Chinese students were expelled from American universities in 2014 alone – and the main reasons were poor grades and cheating. Is plagiarism rampant among Chinese students? If yes, why? Is Chinese education system blamed for plagiarism and the lack of academic integrity?

Cheating and plagiarism are rampant at most universities and it's not just the Chinese who do it. A couple of surveys conducted this century show that undergraduate students cheat using various methods at least once. Some 60% have plagiarised or otherwise cheated in assignments and tests.   The numbers in post-graduate studies drop by a good 20-40% in most cases.

No country is free from the scourge of plagiarism and cheating.  However, finding exact figures that are current is difficult as many universities don't like to publish the figures for fairly obvious reasons.

In China, cheating is ubiquitous! Most schools pay teachers whose class produced better test scores. So, these teachers would give their students examination papers ahead of time. Gradually, these students do not understand that they will not be able to compete.
Soon, China will pay for all these!

The problem with China education system is there is no proper stringent measures to weed those who cheats in examinations but rather to praise those who won by all means. Many students walked into top universities but not based on qualified results. They were admitted because of their so called special skills. So like kite flying and fishing, strange! No wonder China could never stand straight up in front of the world!

An education firmly anchored in the belief that memorizing textbooks is tantamount to "acquiring knowledge" produces plagiarists, and plagiarists only. There can be no excellence if high school pupils pass exams that require them to have a good memory so that they can practically recite or reproduce in writing what they read in their school literature.
