Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
How can I help please?
Ok, do you accept this allegation?
I do appreciate how worrying this is.
Obviously you can ask them to prove this allegation. It is difficult to know what to say given that you do accept the allegation. You can't say anything untrue but you could ask them to establish it.
There isn't really anything more than that that can be done.
The other alternative, I'm afraid, is to put your hands up, throw yourself upon your sword and hope for mercy.
I do realise being marked zero is a disaster though so I understand if you want to fight it.
Can I clarify anything for you?
That is helpful.
Why do yo usay this has happened?
I'm not sure of their allegation.
Are they saying you used a direct quote?
you did but I can't see what they are alleging?
Okay but why are you directly quoting from other authors?
