    I submitted my final project a weeek or so ago.
    I was reading it over and apart from my stupid grammatical errors/typos I realised I have forgotten to add quotation marks to things that I directly copied. I've referenced them with intext citations and page numbers but no quotation marks! Most of them are definitions or explanations e.g r&d increases economic growth by increasing productivity (smith 1996, p.67) with that explanation being copied directly.

    have I messed up! ? I tried to sub,it my work to write heck but because it's in the turnitin system already it's showing up as 100 percent plagiarised. I don't know what to do because I'm panicking. I've referenced every source that I have used and my bibliography is there.

    It depends on how strict your uni is but it could just go down as a major referencing error rather than plagarism
