Help turnitin score of 33%Watch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
So I just submitted an assignment and I have a really high turnitin score of 33%. It is mainly flagging up my reference list, i think like 25 % is coming just from the list. But there's still a few sentences here and there that it is still detecting, this is the highest score i've gotten in an assignment so far at uni and I'm really stressed. Is this really bad?
I would say that a score above 25% would be looked at in slightly more detail, but once the marker sees that the majority is due to reference list then they will take that into account and mark it as usual. The score is just a tool that helps to identify where there may be an issue. So its sounds like you'll be okay

Some subjects just have unavoidable frequently used phrases that trigger turnitin - it's not worth trying to think of a new way of describing some concept that's got a well known phrase already widely used in the literature.
