Just found out my plagiarism percentage was 72%(mostly because of the appendix) but would I fail?

they look at the percentage but also what has been highlighted, everyone will have a highlighted appendix so it shouldnt be a problem unless theres something else that has obviously been copied!

If you have to follow the appendix format that your course instructor has given you then there's no harm in many people having the same appendix. It usually happened with me when I had to make lab reports. We were divided into 4 groups and the report is 5-7 pages only. My plagerism peaked at 68 percent. Our instructor was totally fine. Has the other group have the same plagerism percentage? Make sure you email your professor to let him/her know about the situation.

72% is very high, to the point, where most of it is copied from someone else's work.. I would speak with your lecturer to discuss it to see what the implications are. I'm assuming this at university, in particular for the one I attend, we're only permitted to go up to 15%.

I did, he was calm with it but that 72% looks wayyyy too much. Do you know how I could decrease it next time I have an assignment?

Submit your assignment before anyone else. I always did that and plagerism was much less.
