International Baccalaureate Organization: Intent Defined
“The IB has no means of knowing whether an act of academic misconduct was deliberate or not. Students should know how to indicate and cite material that is not their own. Students are also expected to follow the rules of acceptable behavior in the exam room and around the time of the examination. For these reasons, a student’s intent cannot be taken into account if the IB investigates an alleged breach of the General regulations: Diploma Programme. Be aware that a breach of IB regulations will have serious consequences.” (Academic Integrity in the Diploma Programme, 2014, IBO)
