    Don't worry! I did this as well. haha

    I used Shakespeare's "Coral Red" as a description for a setting sun.
    I used the colour Azure from that poem about the eagle. (not exactly copied, but inspired me)
    I also used "Wrinkled Sea" from the poem about the eagle.

    More than likely it will impress the examiner as you've used your initiative to get some inspiration from the anthology. Well, at least I hope so

    Good luck

    If you get screwed over for that then I'm totally fúcked! For TKAM I practically copied out my coursework. And then in the describe question in paper 2 (AQA) I wrote something very similar to what I've read elsewhere.

    It would only be illegal if you copied a whole verse or something. Even then, I'm not sure if it is not allowed, I just think they don't mark it as it isn't your own work. You won't get disqualified, maybe just not get marks for that line AT WORST. Really, I doubt someone will notice.

    Firstly did you put quotation marks round it.

    Even if you didn't, since it wasn't coursework then I don't think they are that bothered about plagiarism

    Basically in the paper, this was a week ago, there was 3 questions. Two of them were based on the anthology. The last one was a describe question. On teh describe question, i copied one quote from Heaney's poem which was in the Anthology. It was something like, "There were spotted Bluebottles and bluebottles wove a strong gauze of smell". Im worried that it is plagiarism. Pleas could someone help me, has anyone done anything like this b4 help plz im really worried i just realised now!
    That's nothing i remembered my entire creative piece for the describe and explain question in my eng lang exam. But it does not matter the same people do not mark coursework and exam scripts.... Also even if you did do that you can just say it was a literary reference to improve the quality of your work and you didn't have time to write a bibliography.

    Huh? Why did you get warned? Maybe you're not allowed to discuss Edexcel ?
