    My friend said they copied a few lines word-for-word throughout their English CA and is now worrying because teachers are moderating it and there's a possibility it might be sent off. Are they in trouble?

    If the teacher notices it, yes.
    If the teacher doesn't, there is a low chance it will be sent off, maybe 4 or 5 scripts are sent per subject I think?

    Well Idk in this subject but this is how it is with others.

    yes i do think that they will be in trouble as plagiarism isn't allowed and if they are caught by examiners then their work could potentially be destroyed. this could then result in losing a grade. when you mean a few lines does that add up to a paragraph?

    just to be sure whether i'm right go and tell your friend that they should own up before they get sent off or else they then have nothing else to do but revise a lot for their exam.
