Hi

I can see that you edited your post but I can see the post history (not everyone can) and it appears that it was already cached by Google, so I'm afraid you're going to have to do a complete rewrite, otherwise it will come up in plagiarism detection, and it is very difficult to prove that it was yours.

Ucas share the similarity report with the unis and it is up to them to decide what they do. TSR suggests that if you post any of your PS online to completely rewrite it as it is difficult to prove it is your own work

From memory, they just give the % match. PQ might have seen a report more recently than me though.
