it's usually 2% when compared to other assignments as well as essays on the internet and journals / articles etc.
like i submitted an assignment last semester and i had 8% - however due to the fact i submitted early it wasn't comparing to much of a population of results. Once everyone had handed in their assignments my originality report went up to 12%!
If the tag is green where it displays the percentage then i do believe you're okay :) they usually only start to worry when it goes over 20? I believe, but that might just be my university! :)
Please take part in this survey!! I'm looking for students from the UK
