OMG: Been in this school for nearly 5 years, wrote 2 workterm reports, got very good on both. Now taking a first year biol course and getting in trouble for plagiarism because I didn't reference anything... :(

  1. How the hell do you spend almost 5 years in school writing reports/essays/papers/whatever and not understand the basic principles of plagiarism? Plagiarism is something that's covered in high school...

    1. That's entirely their fault. I've had to use references on every paper I've ever written since, like, grade 10. This is literally high school-level shit.

  7. I think OP was trying to get sympathy from people...NOPE.
    You should know about referencing we started learning about it in grade 5 and kept getting the same lecture all through school ad even now!
    You should be penalized.

  8. I didnt reference anything in my latest work term report, but it was all primary research

  9. No scolding from me OP, but I'm really curious to know how you forgot about references after 5 years of school. TAs are generally very good at reminding people about needing them. A common reason I know in first year biol labs is misunderstanding that the lab manual needs to be cited.
