Hi guys. I was just wondering: for the computer science paper 2 code. Does it matter if your code is identical to someone else's. This is for Cambridge IGCSE. Bearing in mind that this is Pre-Released material and Pseudo code is not affected by personal style.

I'm not sure why you think pseudocode isn't affected by personal style since pseudocode is a made-up language without any fixed syntax rules, so most people write pseudocode in their own style. It's valid to write pseudocode in any reasonable style, so long as the structure and syntax you choose is something which is easily relatable to a real programming language, using common programming constructs.

But in any case, handing in code which is very similar to somebody else's seems very likely to be flagged as cheating and result in disqualification, so if that's what you're planning to do then I'd recommend that you don't.
