    I didn’t cheat or plagiarise anyone, why did I get 28% percentage?

    It's probably fine if you've referenced properly. You should find out how Turnitin works to understand what the results mean.

    It doesn't necessarily mean anything, you can get that much just because of citations. Markers get a more complete breakdown than you do, they'll know you haven't plagiarised.

    The results are like 3,2,1,1,1,1,1,1,1. It’s my first report at university

    Honestly Turn-It-In is like an obsessed psycho girlfriend...It finds cheating where there is none xD

    But seriously, as long as you reference it's all good. I got 24% on my first assignment, and that was literally quoting 2 and 3 words at a time as plagiarized

    Hahaha, it’s my first time.

    I’ve referenced properly, I’ve used everything correctly.

    It’s showing up 3,2,1,1,1,1,1,1 etc

    It highlighted my contents page and page numbers

    That’s usually fine, I know people who got 50+ and had no problems.

    I did skim read it, but I’m just shocked at the percentage amount
