    I've sent off an essay and I've done something so stupid. Usually I quote and reference as I go along but today I completed the essay and went referenced it after. Now that it's been submitted through turnitin they've highlighted a chunk where I FORGOT to cite it! Idk what to do! I was thinking to email the tutor and tell him what's happened but what's the point. I've referenced other sources but its this one blatant chunk that I've forgotten! Help what should I expect or what I can I do to revive myself.

    Just explain what happened to the lecturer and see if they'll let you submit it again.
