Any assignment/paper with a similarity score of more than 20% WILL NOT be accepted. You MUST re-write the paper and paraphrase it until you get a score of 20% or less. In my experience, majority of assignments score less than 6% and the remaining between 6-10%. You can always submit your work to the library or turnitin draft for checking before submitting for grading. Then you need to upload your turnitin report to the course, no assignment will be graded if this step is not completed.
