Hey so I accidentally submitted a report twice for different modules and just realised. Turnitin didn’t detect anything apparently since I got my results back and the university didn’t let me know there were any issues...? But I am worried that they can revoke my degree, is that possible?
Do universities check for plagiarism after graduating?

Even though it’s technically self plagiarism and I do have the actual report I was suppose to submit? The names of the files were the same when I did submit so I confused them, and I didn’t realise until now... but I a so worried they will ‘suddenly’ find out... do universities check back records?

1. Universities can revoke degrees but seldom do. This usually happens to high profile people or when there is evidence of widespread cheating.
2. Generally, no. Unless they are given a reason to.
3. See above.

High profile? In regards to known for heating or high profile in regards to popular?

And thank you!

High profile as in professors, politicians etc. In the public eye so to speak where it would be frowned upon for them to keep their qualification and probably cause public outcry of some sort.

It was an accident... like I worked my head off for the actual piece and I am mad that I didn’t get marked for that... all those wasted hours.

but I am just worried turnitin will flag it up somehow?
Do you think that’s possible, like could that happen?

That is so stupid to take someones degree away from them just because they are controversial.
No it’s not.
Someone cheated their way to a degree which then allowed them to obtain high positions. Positions which people are afforded a lot of trust. If you can’t obtain your degree honestly, why should you be trusted to say, run a government department?

Something like this happened in Germany a few years ago.

Ohh right i thought you meant people that got their degree fairly but became hated by society for whatever reason and so got their degree taking off them.
Oh no that’s not reason enough. Honorary degrees can be revoked for stuff like that though as they are usually awarded for doing good things. If you start doing bad things then you’re not in a position to hold the honorary degree.
