So for my Year 13 CS coursework I'm creating an app that has many features, such as a login system, calendar etc. but I don't have that much coding experience, since it's already basically November now and the project is due in February I don't have all that much time to learn all the code. I was trying to learn to code over the summer but I was pretty damn demotivated after the self-teach in the lockdown and frankly I couldn't really take anything in and now we've started the project already.
I noticed in the examiner report s they advised against using tutorials for student work. I've already created some things using tutorials. I think I rely on them too much but without them, I'm (even more) dead!
Would the examiners be able to tell if I used tutorials for my work?

I think using tutorials is okay but as long as you don't exactly copy the code in the videos and you actually learn things, then you should be okay!
