Hi, I just sat my English exam yesterday and the day before the exam I had watched a video from my salles youtube channel and there was a setting paragraph that he said we can memorize and write for our descriptive writing and I wrote the rest of my own plot however I forgot to change up the words a bit and now I'm really concerned if I'm going to get disqualified or I will be marked down or what will happen I am really worried?

heyy im not an examiner or anything of the sort but my opinion is that it should be fine as long as you didn't use the priest story almost everyone used.

Nah I think the plot thing is fine but for mine apparently they jus wont mark the bit i copied out if they clock that its from youtube but the rest of the story they'll jus give a grade for that

how do you know
Apparently its plagiarizing but like i commented on mr salles' video and asked him whas gonna happen and he said that the bit that i jus copied wont get marked but the rest the story will and the other questions will be fine but idk cos other ppl are saying other things so like ive accepted the fact that a failed. I saw somehwere else that you'll be disqualified from the whole exam board and get Us for all the exams from the board

Descriptive writing is so simple.. why would you copy a paragraph? If other people have written the same thing then you probably will be disqualified.

I've seen another post about someone plagiarising the same descriptive writing word for word. I honestly don't know what will happen but you've just got to forget about it now. It's common sense though.. It's like copying someone else's exam answer and saying "I didn't know". It's cheating.
