Student sues Abu Dhabi university for cancelling exam grades over cheating allegations


DUBAI – A college student has won an appeals case against a university in Abu Dhabi for cancelling his grades over allegations that he cheated on his exam.

The second year Engineering student said that the university annulled his second semester exam results after his lecturers alleged that he cheated on his sports engineering exam.

The student said that the university made the move less than a week after they interrogated him as part of an internal investigation.

The Abu Dhabi Court of First Instance ruled in favor of the student and ordered the university to overturn its decision and pay the fees.

The university then filed an appeal with the Abu Dhabi Court of Appeals, insisting it conducted a thorough investigation of the matter and had issued a disciplinary action.

However, the appeals court pointed out that the faculty member who accused the student of cheating was also on the disciplinary committee, which constituted a breach of impartiality. ICA/Expat Media
