EPQ Withdrawal

Hi,
I've recently submitted my EPQ and am worried that it will be detected for plagiarism or AI detection which can lead to potential disqualification. Can I withdraw my EPQ even if I've internally submitted it as I am worried that I will potentially get a bad grade and can I withdraw my application even after I get my marks from the school internally but before they send it off to the exam board?

Thanks :smile:

Why are you worried it will be detected as plagiarised? Did you plagiarise it? :s-smilie:

No, I'm just unsure if I referenced it properly or not and I'm not entirely confident about the rules of plagiarism.

If it was an obvious accident they won’t take it too seriously- if you’d purposefully not referenced or blatantly copied something it would be different, and probably obvious.

I think if something was seriously wrong your teacher would’ve told you. It’s natural to be a bit concerned about this sort of thing, as it is likely the first piece of work you have had to reference, and at university plagiarism would be serious- but this is the EPQ!

Apparently when they mark the EPQ they put your references into a computer and randomly select about 3 to see if they’ve been done correctly. If I were you, I wouldn’t be too worried.
