|Its unlikely that variable names (if used, unfortunately sql isnt heavy on variables (alias etc)), indentation, basic style things should not have a few minor differences|
Variable names for the things in the tables were decided by the book. The only difference would be that I changed one variable name since it would turn blue (which I didn't like) because it was also a keyword.
|You solve it, with whatever resources you are allowed... Code it, run it, show that you can do it easily.|
He said to setup a meeting with him, so I recommended this in the email I just sent, thanks for the idea.
|you can also force him to show the other work beside yours|
At this point, I need to. He sent another email. The graders apparently are the ones who reported the supposed cheating and thought it was "exact" and "apparent".
The only thing that makes sense to me if our work looks alike is.. great minds think alike? Likely used the same resources when doing the assignments. I don't even know anyone else in the class.
However, some of these it is absolutely insane to me that our assignments can be so similar. I mean, like I said, one of them I literally had no idea what I was doing and just wanted to have something to turn in so I did it while on an airplane with no internet access. We had to insert into a B-Tree, I just said fuck it and filled up the whole tree on one side. Yet somehow, both graders have specifically pointed out that assignment as one with clear cheating.
It's hilarious how his email today said, "I rather not request harsh punishment" followed by he'll give me an F in the course unless told otherwise by the university or proven wrong.
I swear, if THIS is the class that keeps me from gradating, they can keep their stupid degree. I'm not paying out of pocket again because of the university's lack of available classes and nonexistent help followed by whatever this nonsense is.
Just a couple semesters ago, one class had an UNPAID teacher assistant who blatantly ripped assignments off other universities, changed them to be so difficult that no one could do them, then held discord meetings where he just GAVE the class the answers. The whole class would be in those meetings and there is no way we didn't all turn in the same exact answers for 90% of the assignments.
But no, that's not cheating at all. But doing my own work, how dare I!
