For my junior cert I am planning to learn an extract from a John Green novel as my essay, although it is very hard to tell what novel it comes from (changed the characters names plus the event that I learned from the story is not that memorable), my question is, is it likely that I will be caught? Do examiners usually check essays on the internet?
they actually might as this is a very important exam and they might check to see if its ur original composition but at th same time they might not as they are teachers as well and hav A LOT of exams to correct tht by the time they get to urs (considering tht ur one is not th e first one) he/she might not even bother to do tht. but i would try to learn an essay i hav wrote myself just to b on th safe side if they mark u 0 for an essay worth 40 marks buyt if u write ur own one there is more chance in getting marks there.
good luck watever u choose to do in june
