There was also oner or two lines which I used form anonline source but failed to reference - stupid I know!!
Before ye start tearing me to shreds for being so stupid and incompetent what are the likely sanctions to be imposed on me?
I would like to think you proof read your essay more than your post
I am not familiar with Hibernia but have you checked out their website?
Did they not give you any indications of the possible sanctions in the email?
Sanctions could involve..... getting a fail mark or none at all for the essay...... having to do another essay on a different topic....repeat the year.....public stoning.....
Actually, haven't they got a section on their website where you can ask them questions? Try there.
