    Hello,
    I am currently completing my A2 product design coursework and feels as if I am rewriting exactly what I done last year in the research sections. I was wondering, take ergonomics as an example, the factual information is the same so my analysis should be the same, so why I cant use this in my A2 work rather than basically typing out the same thing, but differently.
    Question:
    Is it plagiarism if I copy some of my AS work (unpublished material) and use it for research purposes in my A2 coursework ?

    Any help would be appreciated,
    Lee

    Exam moderators/markers - If you are reading, your input would be especially useful ! I contacted AQA and they said speak to your teacher, who does not have a clue.

    Coursework is internally moderated. A sample of your work will be sent off to the examining bodies to make sure that the marking of the teacher is accurate. Plagiarism will not be much a factor of this. Of course, it's best to do your own work, but just referencing and reusing work you've already made will be fine.

    Sorry for the late reply.
    That is exactly what I wanted to hear, thank you.
