Hi everyone,

I've just submitted my final summative essay for one of my modules (4000 words). The turnitin report has given me a similarity score of 0%. This seems a little weird to me as I usually get a score of around 5-10% for other essays and I was just wondering if there was anything wrong with this? I'm worried that this means I haven't used my sources appropriately.

Any advice/comments would be appreciated.

Thank you!

Doesn't necessarily mean anything. Wait until you get feedback/marks on the piece to gauge if there was any issue with how used sources etc. You mightve just as well written an outstandingly original piece of academic writing for all you know otherwise

Hello!

Well done, that's so good! I've never had a 0% Turnitin grade before but it must mean you have written your work very well! If it is stressing you out then you can always speak to your tutor or the Study Support team at your university who can help with academic queries!
