    Hi Everyone..

    Im new to TSR and made this account just to ask this question. Please answer seriously

    Im a first year student at the LSE and submitted my LSE100 portfolio for grading in april for the deadline. But when I was submitting it, I had to rush and didnt get a chance to check all my references thoroughly.

    I made references for the first couple of answers in the portfolio, but towards the end of it, I didnt continue to reference because :
    1) I didnt quote anything from the readings and didnt really paraphrase either, I just read it like I was supposed to and took the knowledge to write what I think.***
    2) the portfolio answers are supposed to be about the course reading we were given and the questions often state "Based on X author/readings what do you think of.." so I thought it was obvious that my answers would be based on those texts.

    ***The problem is that because I was rushing to submit the portfolio I didnt notice that there were TWO quoations that I didnt reference!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ive already gotten by course exam results but heard nothing from the LSE100 department...

    Bottom line: Do you think I will get in serious trouble and what should I do????
