    ANYONE?
    There's no point checking it with Turnitin. Every time something is checked on Turnitin they keep a copy of the document to compare against. Even if you haven't plagiarised originally, by the time you make your final submission it would come back highly plagiarised from that one source. Whilst it might be explainable, there's really no point in risking it.

    If you haven't plagiarised, you'll get a plagiarism score of around 20%, perfectly normal - after all, there are only so many ways you can say something.

    Turnitin have a sister site which can check for plagiarism sinilarity, it's the same engine that they use. I can't remember the site but I do know they charge a fee for checking. Google 'TurnItIn plagiarism checker' and it'll probably come up.

    They say that they don't keep it, so I'm guessing they dont!

    I'm not sure how good that website is though, I just uploaded a document that I nicked from wikipedia, and I was told I hadn't plagiarised. Lucky me!

    Just don't plagiarise and you'll be ok.
