Admit the Mistake

As soon as someone realizes that they have unknowingly committed a mistake, they should immediately inform their supervisors. The superior may not be pleased with the situation, but this is the right thing to do. Trying to hide the mistake is never a good idea as it creates more issues. In addition, be upfront about the deed and be sincerely apologetic.

Don’t point fingers at other

There is a good chance that other people were involved in the work. It may be true that they had responsibilities too. But it is never a good idea to blame other people for the mistake. Take responsibility and represent your case.
