Ok,i've been accused of being plagiarismed in the physics coursewok and actually i didn't know what the hell it happened.But still i got 3As and a B in physics.

Will the university be informed that i have plagiarismed in physics coursework and just don't give me an offer? School says it's not my fault and will be supportive in my reference.I'm so confused, plz, help, give me some advice,thx.

Did you plagiarise? You weren't very clear on that.

Well it's one of those things where you must be sure :p: if you didn't knowingly copy somebody's work and it's all your own words then you aren't guilty.

OP, i think you need to contact edexcel and protest this if you haven't plagerised anything.

I had, but they still give me a 0, and they said i can retake this unit next year. But the problem is, will the universities i'm applying to be informed that i have been plagiarism and have some negative effects on their decision?

The word is plagiarized by the way, not "plagiarismed". Did you state all of your sources, you didn't miss one out without realizing?

If it's only a unit, it shouldn't show on your transcript (universities will be more interested in the overall grade)

But check with senior staff members at your school to make sure, though

anyway, whether i have plagiarized is not important. Edexcel firmly believed that i have plagiarized and give me a 0 while school told me it cannot be changed.

I just want to know whether universities i'm applying to will know that i have plagiarized and have negative effect on my applying(like they think plagiarism is very bad and don't give me an offer even i got 3 As and a B)

Relax - university should not find out about your indiscretion.

I am still unsure what happened. Edexcel would not zero your work without good reason.

a) Did you cut and paste some stuff from the internet into your work?

b) Did you upload your work to a coursework sharing website?

c) Did you let someone else copy or borrow your work?

d) Did you copy or borrow someone else's work?

My school said they will be supportive, and they will write notes on this 0 says i have always been very brilliant on physics, this is an accident.
But will the universities knows this through ucas?

I copied HOOkE's law on the test book and include it in my bibliography, i quoted some pictures on the internet(not included in bibliography), and i found a description of forces and energy on the internet, learned it, and used my own words to describe them, that's all.

I believe the only way unis could find out is if they guess how you got a '0' in one unit (if you declare your unit marks) or if your teachers tell them in their references.

Then the zero is incredibly harsh and you have grounds to appeal. I don't want to accuse you of being disingenuous but are you sure you are telling the whole story?
