    No you wouldn't be in trouble if you do that. The plagiarism software will show that this is possibly plagiarised but in the end they'll find out its plagiarised from your own work, so you won't be in trouble.

    You could use the entire PS again and not have a plagiarism problem - self plagiarism does exist, but not for the purposes of UCAS.

    This is providing you didn't show it to a friend, e-mail it to anyone or post it on the internet (excluding PS Help, because that is a secure part of TSR; there are possibly other safe sites, but I wouldn't like to comment on them.) If you did, it's safer to re-write.
