I totally plagiarized soMeone's work in my exam. The literature exam was on Monday and the morning before I read an exemplar for a Macbeth question. Monday evening I re read the answer and I realise I wrote word to word for some parts. I think 65% of my answer was that question. I didn't even mean to do that at all. I just have a terribly good memory. What will happen to me? Will the exam board disqualify me?

Doesn't plagiarism only really matter at university? Not sure about A levels, because I'm doing GCSEs atm.

I don't want to plagiarize in my a-levels lol, I'm taking all maths subjects I don't know how I would be able to plagiarize with those. I mean I wish I could say best in the class for the coming a-levels.

All I did was just read books I enjoyed, not even related to the books we did in the course - I didn't even read those apart from in class. But I enjoy classics anyway. Then I watched MrBruff, I only used him as my teacher was useless and Mr Bruff was a god. He helped understand the exam structure and the exemplars were brilliant. That's all really, that all it took to get a grade 9 back then.
As for language, I'm not really sure about it, I winged it and got a 7, I suppose it would've been higher had I put in actual effort. I'm not sure what I did to get that grade. I suppose I've always enjoyed English itself to some extent and that's why I didn't fail. Even today, despite a-levels, I'm still a bookworm and a little obsessed with the structure of languages themselves. Probably should've taken a-level English instead of Physics. God, make sure to pick your options wisely.

Thanks for the reply, but just wondering how did you "plagiarise"?

I remembered Mr Bruff's exemplars, although I didn't memorize them nor make any effort to learn them, they stuck to me and I realized afterwards that I had written almost verbatim, his essays in my exams.
