    I've almost finished my EPQ and will be handing it in, in a couple of days.

    I created a game in Java as an artefact. Obviously parts of the code are going to be online already as there is only one way of doing a certain thing.

    Will this be marked as plagiarism by AQA's system, even though I coded the game myself?

    Surely referencing the source of any code that you used would be sufficient. They can hardly expect you to invent a programming language of your own . . .

    I didn't use any sources, I learnt Java then made a 2D RPG with my knowledge direct from my head to IDE, nothing was copied from online, but I thought the code would be alerted during the checking process as the majority of Java code is online which would cover most of my game. Was just wondering if they would see this and make an exception, as you said, I shouldn't think they would expect me to write my own one.

    I wouldn't be too worried. Any text you didn't write by hand would require computer coding and whatnot. I think you ought to be OK with that really
