Did you plagiarise it from other sources?

So you did plagiarise. Universities take plagiarism very seriously, so don't be surprised if they explicitly ask you about it. It doesn't matter if the sentences you stole don't talk about your qualifications/experiences, you still copied them verbatim so the ideas and voice of the work is not your own.

You can email them about it, but they may not give you the chance to send a revised one, as it's purely on you to not plagiarise in the first place.

You have started university yet, and already begun plagiarising.
