    basically my friend wrote her IGCSE assesment which was titled "a soldiers letter"
    Pretty much 3/4 of the work was her own words however She was running out of ideas so She looked for ideas on Google,She only took like a paragraph & she changed the word order and the words used SLIGHTLY however She is incredibly scared (and keeps on pestering me about it) and she feel sooo bad as she doesn't want to be labelled as a plagiarist if her work is part of sample they're going to send of (highest grades and lowest grades) then would they pick up on this? She feels so sick and awful! Thanks in advance guys

    Unless she copied it word for word, I shouldn't think they would know
