Is 25% a high similarity rating on turnitinWatch

Even if everything is properly referenced, the issue with such a high similarity is that a quarter of the report is not your work.
The teacher can either allow you to see it or not to see it. It’s up to the person, if the allow it then a few minutes after you send it off, you will have a percentage bar come across and also be able to review your work to see which parts came up as plagiarism, in my experience most of the bits of ‘plagiarised’ work I received were just small phrases of a few words and nothing to serious and I ended up with D*. There was one assignment though here I had to fix plagiarism in the retake haha it was 35% I think!😅
i have submitted an an assignment on turnitin and it came out with it being at 25% which seems to be fairly high is it or not
I once submitted an annotated bibliography, because every reference was essentially there twice by similarity was like 40% which was fine because it was clear I hadn’t copied and pasted, I actually got 90% mark for that piece of work!
I also had a 2% similarity once, I thought either what I’ve written is amazing OR it’s so much rubbish nobody has ever said such nonsense before 😅.
