Detection of plagiarism

Detection of plagiarism is very easy.

Turnitin is a software programme that can check if assignments have been produced using text from other sources, without acknowledgment.

This software is widely used across the UK in Further and Higher Education.

The software is described in more detail at http://www.turnitin.com

Students who plagiarise, even unintentionally, may lose all their marks for their work. So it’s worth making sure you avoid basic mistakes which could lead to you losing credit.
