english lit plagarism gcse

If I learnt paragraphs that aren't mine off by heart for each character and used them in the eng lit exam but reworded slightly to fit the question would that be plagiarism and cause me to be disqualified?

No, I don't think they check for plagiarism on GCSEs. Because it's not open book, they don't care about plagiarism because you would have had to at least learn the paragraph. It's EXTREMELY unlikely that your examiner will have read what you're planning on memorising anyways. I'd just go for it! :smile:
