    Most likely you'll get 0 for that section, with no ability to resit + an extra penalty on top.

    Depends on the severity and the rules at your uni... I think most will make you resubmit the essay and put a cap on your mark.

    It really depends on your uni's regulations regarding plagiarism. It doesn't bode well but hopefully you learned your lesson.

    Generally they are severe penalties for plagiarism in academia .Just try to be remorseful (hopefully your are and not just because you got caught ), show that you have reflected and understand what you did was unacceptable. I would avoid trying to make excuses to justify your actions.

    Goodluck OP, hopefully you don't receive a harsh penalty and this serves as a learning experience for you.

    Honestly no one on here can give a straight answer - you'll be better asking these questions to the university or course director themselves

    Core is that they need to prove with evidence that is beyond balance of probabilies, ie a civil prosecution. You can defend it by asking for the evidence and get a lawyer in to review it. There are always defences. Could be that you were with others and relied upon their work, so can plead 'migitation' that it was not 100% your fault.If you did it, then options are to defend it, and see how strong their case is. Might be gossip and no substance. Otherwise can plead guilty, and then they can remit your case for clemancy. End is that what is the plea bargain you can get. If you talk to anyone employed at the university, they are on the other side and can be used against you, as a witness. You can only talk to a lawyer and get protection. Best bet, See a lawyer fast. This is not legal advice and should not be taken as such. Lastly honesty helps. If you stole work while in a company, then its jail. Think next time and do an honest days work...Leave WallSt films to be the on screen crooks.KindlyJJ

    LOL Sure. Get a lawyer. Better still be clean and stay away from those 10,000 an hour dudes. They can kill you life.
