Hiya! I'm a journo student and I'm doing a story about plagiarism and was wondering if anyone had ever used one of those sites that writes essays for you? Or been accused of plagiarism?
Has anyone been caught/accused of cheating on coursework at uni? watch

No, because I'm not an idiot and thus wouldn't trust one of those sites to produce anything decent and certainly wouldn't pay someone to do something I can do in an hour or two. No I've not been accused of it although I would imagine this would be more common.

Yes, they thought one of my essays (philosophy) was 'too good for someone so quiet in seminars'. I had to go in and convince them I wasn't an idiot, then when they marked it they only gave me 59 because I used my own unusual theories. To get a higher mark you have regurgitate a load of the standard theories. The hoops you have to jump through.... it's a bloody circus.
