    Just a question that pops in my insane mind

    Does anyone know how courseworks are checked?
    And how the examiners can detect some aspects of plagiarism in someones own coursework? Producing a courseowrk with using someones excellent coursework example as a GUIDE to follow and using his point creating your own view, is not plagariem is it?
    i mean do examiners do a technology test of all papers submited to them or just some, becasue wont that take ages?
    for my biology osmosis coursework i used some info, from coursewrok.info copied some but then changed the sentence structure for my conclusion, do you think just doing that, i could by detected of cheating and plagiarism by the examiner who looks at my coursework?
    By the way coursework.info is a paying site, does it matter if the site is a paying or free site for the examiners?


    One of my teachers told me they type a sentence or the title of your coursework into a search engine and see if any other piece of work come up.

    I know you're allowed to use excellent coursework as a guide, well, not to copy but to see what you need to have to get good marks. The best to use for this is the exemplar material on the exam board website.
