For example: Do you know how much from an essay, write-up (science) and a coursework can i copy from the internet? Do they check every reference and do they use computers which show them how much i've copied, and from where i've copied it?

thanks, chrisger

They use a system called TurnItIn.

If they catch you cheating on absolutely anything (even just one sentence), they can fail you and you won't get your IB diplomma. It's not worth the risk. Use references everywhere. Don't mess with the IBO.

Academics at this level tend to only use Plagiarism software when an act of Plagiarism is suspected. There are far too many papers to scan them all. Naturally, when only a select number of topics are available to be written on, there will be a overlap between papers, but it is very clear when Plagiarism has been committed. One or two sentances does not set alarms off, but paragraphs and uncited evidence does, and, as I said before, it is very clear when this has been done.

If you copy work from the internet, you will be caught; I can guarentee it.

I was falsely accused of copying two GCSE English coursework papers. Really high mark A*s too, because I didn't do them in class. I had a draft version of one of them but thankfully both were allowed.

Cheating is not allowed. Don't do it.
