Hi All,

Can you please help me with this questions? I studied the GMAT AWA writing topics with sample essays in advance. I found there are many sample essays available online. If i just memorize those and use the exact essay for my exam, does it consider plagiarism? Will that be ok? Or I have to write the essays using my own words?

Hello Khuynh282

Although experts can clarify, but, as far as my knowledge goes ........ there is 99.9999.....99 % chance that you will not get an exact issue. Hence, the question of plagiarism is almost 0.00....01% .But, If you practice from the list in OG or the authentic samples...... you might get something in the same line of logic/thinking.
Hence, it is not advisable to memorize...... saying that ..... you definitely can work on a common structure of arguments/issues.

Hope this helps

hey mate, by the time you are ready for your test, you will be so well prepared with CR skills to weaken the argument and SC skills to write correct statements, that you won't have to memorize somebody else's essays.
Having said that, it would still not be a bad idea at all to get familiar with AWA templates though.
All the best with your preparations.
