    In my computer science coursework I was told I was allowed to copy and paste definitions from google, and listed a couple of sources at the top but i am not sure that it was all of them, with my teachers not even telling us we needed sources but I had read that somewhere myself just before we had to submit it and decided to put a couple in.

    Now mine is being moderated😟, will they fail me???

    hard to tell tbh as we dont know what youve done.

    If they are standard and uncontroversial that everyone knows, then no problem, but if they are more extensive then they might decide its too much and penalise you.

    You arent meant to just cut and paste from google and you are meant to have signed a form stating its all your own work.

    You won't, unless you have copied your analysis off the internet, definitions need to be precise hence it's not frowned upon if you copy and paste only basic definitions. Next time just don't be lazy :P

    im sure it will be fine, if it was javascript then it was meant to be a research project so you were meant to show your reserach from the internet to explain how you developed your code

    I'm sure You'll be fine but next time you do an assessment make sure anything you copy word for word online put it in quotation marks, In italics and say that it is copied like this:

    "(Thing you copied and pasted)" -Quote-(Website you got it from)
