    I just read through my report and realised I have made a stupid mistake.

    I have cited a source but referenced it in the bibliography page, not the references page.

    Does anyone think if this is a big deal or not?

    Not a huge problem I wouldn't have thought - if you have put the reference in it is obvious you are not trying to plagiarise / pass ideas off as your own, which is the main reason for referencing anyway.

    Putting the source in the wrong section is a simply error anyone could make I reckon.
