    So I thought a research would just consist of information that I've gathered. I understand it's plagiarism if I just copy and paste it if I don't reference it, but it's just research anyway and I don't see why it's necessary to write it in my own words.

    This is not a research report, or an essay with research within it, it's just research that I have to submit. Yet I lost marks because it was copied. Please understand that I did not copy a research paper or anything, I got all my information from different sauces.

    Can someone please help me and explain if I've done something wrong. Any help would be appreciated

    What specifically was the assignment and what exactly did you submit? You said yourself that copying without referencing is plagiarism.
“Yanny” or “Laurel”
