CAN Exam Papers Get caught for Plagiarism !

As the title suggests, can the examiner penalise you for using the phrases from other sources?

We all know the amount of material available on the net, so for my English Poems I’m struggling a bit. Therefore, I have decided to LEARN THEM! And use it on the exam such as for conclusion


‘To conclude, both poem seem,’(Bit more as well ) This is an Exact phrase taken from SAMPLE Answer. There are more phrases ....


So yh will you get caught ?
Any1? Please!
Exam papers are given out. So its not plagiarism. Also, if its in exam conditions, and you remember it, then its your knowledge.

Put it this way, examiners work for pence per paper and really couldn't give a ****.
So Does the paper get "SCANNED" ?

Yes. As I am aware. Copy's need to be made to stop examiners being bribed. Also, I heard a different examiner marks each question, to make it fair.

Depends on how much you use. And how much it contributes, for example if your main argument is completely lifted from a sample answer then that may be a bit dodgy.

At the end of the day, if it's from memory, and you don't know the question beforehand, it is difficult to say that you plagarised.

It's unlikely that you'll get done for plagiarism, if you do what you say, but it'll probably lose you some potential marks if it sounds like you're regurgitating someone else's views without digesting them or name-checking them.

I've referred exam scripts on to the malpractice dept. at AQA for plagiarism in the past, but then that was more to do with identical introductions in exams where students could take open texts into the exam and looked like they'd written exactly the same answers in their books and then copied them out.

Haha do you know how scared I was after doing my AQA GCSE exams. You had to sign the front to confirm it is 'your own work' but I used lots of ideas from a website I came across and literally thought I was going to get disqualified from the exam! lol But I didn't. :]
I remember searching it up and apparently the papers go through alot of procedures.. I don't know cos my teacher used to say they mark 1000's of papers etc.
So I would say use ideas but don't copy word to word :smile:
