    I recently submitted an essay with a 56% Turnitin similarity. The task had 3 questions all based on a case judgement, so I used a lot of big quotes from the judgement. Will the essay get failed?

    56% is quite high, but as long as you have referenced any text that you've taken from other places you won't have a plagiarism issue.
