    I recently did a project in which coding(its not my strong point) was involved and got caught plagiarising…
    I'm not sure how you do this with code, but can you not just cite the parts you are using that are someone else's work? It seems less than clever to get caught doing this a second time. In the normal course of things, in a degree where you are writing and researching (ie English, Law, Physics…) you just cite or quote the work of others that you are using in your assessment.

    I can't imagine that when writing code they would expect you to write something completely original, you must be expected to do research and use other people's ideas - you just get extra marks for using those in original ways, rather than straight copying large blocks and claiming that as your own.

    If you get kicked for plagiarism then you are going to have to admit that in any further applications/courses (perhaps even job applications), so you are probably going to struggle to get on another course. You might want to consider your career options.

    If you've been caught plagiariing for a second time, you need to start making plans for what to do after university. You won't get a third chance. The principles would've been clearly explained during your last case, along with the consequences.
