With the upcoming deadline for English coursework, my teacher has been constantly hammering home the seriousness of plagiarism and what it can result in. Hence, I've become increasingly anxious that I may have subconsciously or accidentally copied another source.
I know for sure that I never directly copied and pasted something into my work. However, I remember looking around the internet for inspiration, as well as bouncing ideas off of my peers, and I'm in a state of fear that I may have written something similar to another piece of work.
Is there anything I can do to double check that all of my work is 100% my own?
I wouldn't worry, you probably haven't but you're just worried you have.
I was constantly worrying about that in my Science case study because you're actually allowed to copy texts as long as you put the sources, but it turned out I hadn't.
I suppose if you really think you might have done, I'd tell your teacher and ask if you can look at your coursework to see and maybe change a few things.
