Umm I accidently wrote word for word what Mr Salles wrote online on the internet in my creative writing piece it was the first 2 paragraphs just under 1/2 a page, my total story was just over 3 pages, it was exactly word for word. The video currently has 57000+ views, will I get disqualified, I mesmerised it and reproduced it in the exam

You accidentally forget your car keys, accidentally take a left when you meant to take a right, accidentally drop something. You don't accidentally plagiarise two whole paragraphs you melt. Level 2 material.

no, I didn't know you weren't allowed to do that, I thought plagerism only affected any NEA or Coursework, not the actual exam hence I copied his work and wrote it as my first to paragraphs then I found this video online from another guy and he said you can't do it

You're most likely going to get your writing flagged for plagiarism. If it's the entire story they will probably disqualify you or not mark that section of the exam.

no it definitely wasn't the whole thing, it was just my first 2 paras that was less than 1/2 a page. and I changed 1 or 2 words to help it fit better with my story

'plagiarism is restricted to those examination components
where students undertake examination work in unsupervised conditions, such as
coursework, pre-release work, or the compilation of research notes which can be
used in the examination.'

This is what I have found in the JCQ PDF on plagiarism for all exam boards: AQA, Edexcel, OCR etc. So I don't think it is a problem.
