However, as the exam boards use plagiarism detectors I was wondering what would happen if I contained a healthy amount of paraphrasing and phrases in my essay. By this I don't mean every paragraph and sentence, but a few on each page perhaps. As the detectors wouldn't notice the referencing then wouldn't they just see my document as being heavily paraphrased, or does this not matter?
I would never copy work without referencing, and would never copy more than a full sentence.
So basically, how does the exam board monitor plagiarism?
