    I submit 3 essay via turnitin. 3 of the essays general comments are:concern authenticity of your work, script held and suspected plagiarism. I just wondering about why and how will it happen and end up like that? I do check the similarity before I submit the works and all of them are below 25%. My friend said they might think the essays are written by other people like the writing service company.
    What will happen if they decide this is not my work? And what will the university do? Will I fail 3 of those module or expelled in the end if they say is not my work? I am so worry about it right now please let me know what will happen.

    They will investigate and give you a chance to tell them what happened. Every uni has a different process so find out what yours is. Contact your tutor and SU for help.

    contact your SU, perhaps ask for clarification on what the issue is with the essay so you can try and work out how it happened (e.g. did you accidentally write something similar to a book, is the essay better than your normal work and so they suspect you didn't write it etc)

    if it's accidental plagiarism they may dock your mark or they may ask you to retake the essay, if they conclude you intentionally cheated then you may be kicked out
