    Most probably yes because they can easily compare both papers and find many similarities.

    No they need to change the definition of plagiarism:

    'the practice of taking someone else's work or ideas and passing them off as one's own'

    because a lot of my dissertation has previous work in it so I will probably get kicked out.

    I never repeated a year, but I always assumed that so long as it was your own work you're allowed to resubmit it


    Obviously you would have to make changes so you actually pass this time

    I didn't use plagerism checkers last year for my dissertation but I will be using it this year.

    I hope they wouldn't notice but if they bother to look at my report from last year and compare it to this year they will see a lot of similarities.
