Today, there was an exam of software engineering and based from the report i got from the supervisor of the exam, they identified some of the students cheated and based from that report, i gave them E as the lowest grade ever without marking their exam.
Some of them complained to me via SMS and Facebook and tell me that there was miscommunication between them and the supervisor. For me, it was just a self-defence mechanism to protect themselves without looking at the rules at examination room. It's stated that you are not allowed to borrow items from your friends, not allowed to talk to your friends. I think those rules are crystal clear for all students around the globe. Failed to do so means you are dealing with all the grades you got for 1 semester.
Anyway, i'm still giving them hope for an open discussion next Monday. Hopefully by then we can get the final answer
