Hi,
A "Friend" of mine wants to use of their AS coursework in their A2 coursework, which is unpublished and undistributed material. This will allow my "Friend" to allocate time elsewhere on 'their' project, rather than just pretty much writing out exactly the same thing again.
My friend was wondering, does moderation check for plagiarism ? If so, can they be disqualified just for using some of their own work, again ?
Thank you, on behalf of my friend.

You should check with the exam board whether they have a policy on self plagiarism. Its a think at Uni, bit not sure about A levels. I would imagine checking is much more lenient and lax.

I have contacted AQA, who told me to speak to my teacher.
She does not have a clue.
I hope its much more lenient.
Thank you

Did you ask them specifically on the policy on self plagiarism? Whether they have one. Contact them again or your exam officer.
