I passed huge chunks of an HNC (with a distincion on every module and 100% on most) mainly using cut & pasted text from Wikipedia.
It worries me that a) the blatant plagiarism wasn't spotted by the tutor and b) the factual errors weren't picked up.
I don't mention the HNC on applications as I feel I didn't earn it.
I have other issues with the course, college and examination, mainly along the lines of allowing students to re-write submissions, with errors highlighted and huge signposts pointing towards sources of correct answers. I found it all akin to getting your driving instructor to do your driving test...
