    Any statements showing a level of similarity of 10% or more are reviewed by members of the UCAS Similarity Detection Service Team. So a phrase would potentially be plagiarism. But I think a few words are fine.

    If you copied full phrases without changing it then yes it will be classified as copied, however a few words will be alright.
