Hey, so I’ve basically finished my ps. However, in my ps I’ve used 2 sentence starters that are like “ my fascination for ....” or “during my A level ....”. Would I get plagiarised as they are common? Also, I’ve referred to 2 theories in my ps (From google) but I’ve reworded the sentences. Would I still get in trouble or does that classify as plagiarism ?

What do you mean you've referred to two theories from Google?

Let’s say I was taking about the nature/nurture debate. I would look at the meaning and reword it so it’s more relevant to my ps but I’ve included 1/2 words that is the same. I don’t know to to reword what I’ve done but I hope it makes sense

It sounds like you're referring to what you want to study so I wouldn't worry too much about it!

No. Copycatch ignores the most common words/phrases.

The plagiarism software is intelligent - it will ignore basic things like that. However, 'fascination' is an overused word in PSs and you don't need to talk about your A Levels

Thankyou and I haven’t talked about my other subjects- only psychology because I want to study that at university
