    Hi, I'm really troubled right now that I have misrepresented some information in an essay I just submitted. In mine I had included 2/3 examples of that were included in the in-text citation with it. As I thought at the time that the first example should be common knowledge.

    The worst problem is that I continued my sentence with existing evidence to support those examples with the additional example. Has anyone experienced being severely marked down or dealt with by your university for doing this as a case of academic misconduct? How bad was it?

    Would appreciate your reply. Thank you.

    Looked at my essay again and it seems that i left that citation out of the reference list too. Will I be just marked down for plagiarism or both?
    While I'm trying to mentally prepare for the worst, I know the source can still be found with the help of some keywords... not sure if that makes it worse...
