Do examiners know the books you read? Like would they recognise incorrect quotes in the essay?

Why would you use incorrect quotes anyway?

Not exactly like a made up incorrect sorta way but what if the quote was rephrased a bit differently I dont think they would catch on? Idk if the examiners actually research the texts or bibliographies

From what I know, examiners do not have the time to read every book picked when marking an exam (some dont even read the books for the core texts) If you're unlucky you might get an examiner who knows the book really well but its unlikely. However, I would try to use the quotes correctly as it will help back up your argument more effectively.

I mean if it’s because you need to rearrange it to make it make sense with the sentences then just quote certain parts of the sentence and embed it into yours. I mean little changes won’t make a difference but I still don’t really get why you’d want to/need to change them if you have the exact quote anyway 😭
