He's already gotten back to me. He's giving me another chance and if it happens again then I will just get my original mark (which was 80% so I don't mind).

hey guys,

I just got 42% similarity on turnitin for the first time, however, it highlighted my entire reference list and phrases like 'the world', 'global climate change', 'the rural poor' and quotes from papers (which were cited properly). I've never had such a high score though so I'm worried.

Am I fucked? Obviously this doesn't sound like legit plagiarism and when you see the paper it isn't but I'm paranoid

Not sure what UoM policy is tbh but this sort of thing isn't entirely uncommon (I had an assignment once that mandated the cover page be included in the Turnitin report, and we were then asked why results were so high lol). Did much get highlighted apart from what you've noted above?

Not really, but there was a sentence where I talked about the predicted world population in 2050 that said I took it from a source Iíve never even seen lol

I suppose I used a lot of common phrases
There were sections that werenít highlighted at all so surely that shows my work was original?

Don't stress, they hardly ever check similarity (unless it's like 50% or more) and if you're discussing a common topic, then your'e bound to have a high similarity.

Say I got an 82.60 overall on all my assessments (by the coordinators method), would this get rounded up or down (assuming no scaling is occurring)?

Pretty sure the rule is up unless it's on a grade border.
