    So i'm currently doing or finished a linux controlled assessment and i hade a query, my teacher isn't the best person to ask because he's covering for maternity leave so doesn't know a lot... Anyway basically I'm on task 13 and it's about writing a shell scripts and i was wondering.. if you copied the entire shell script form the internet and put it in your assessement but explained what it does would that be allowed??

    I'm pretty sure it would be allowed as long as you say that you copied all of it and say where from. You might not get any marks, but if there's a chance you'll get another mark from you explanation, I guess you might as well.

    Remember the controlled assessments are marked by overall quality and not by each task, so it's not a disaster if you miss part of a task.
