    Hey i wanted to know something
    people always say Exam board have this technology which can help identify plagiarism and all that nonsense.
    i was wondering, say if someone copied a essay from online and handed it in- (noting in mind it is hand written) how will the exam find out if its plagiarised?
    thanks

    They have a software which detects materials from online. Doesn't matter if it's handwritten or typed up, they can search where it's been copied from very easily.

    Make sure you don't copy anything from online! Leads to a disqualification from all exams from that exam board.

    Your work only gets checked if it gets asked to which it does randomly. So say in your class yours gets picked for review and it ends up like that then your whole class's will get checked out and the marks might be lower.
