Ok so say for my English Lit poetry exam tomorrow, if I learnt my notes word for word (which come from an online resource) and then if it's appropriate to use them I then write them out from memory in the exam, could I be penalised for plagiarism? It might be a dumb question but I need to know before I end up doing it...
Can you be accused of plagiarising in exams? Watch

I don't know the rules. But I'd say its more likely they'll think you've cheated and accessed the web page during the exam

Absolutely not, though you'll probably lose marks for not having "flair"

No because the examiners generally don't go online to check these things for GCSE however it's possible other people found the same notes and therefore you could lose marks for not making person points

i think the only thing they check for plagiarism is english language story section, coursework, and that's about it.
