ok so i'm really curious about how nesa can actually check plagerism in the english paper? because

1. it's handwriting, so it's not like they can just use tools like turnitin

2. There are THOUSANDS of paper to mark, would a marker actually be able to remember a similar essay? (its possible if two papers are the EXACT same, but if someone just paraphrased and changed some sentences structures + use synonyms, can they be caught?)

3. they have a deadline and are probably under a lot of pressure, if they do discover two exact essays, that means they'll have to go over all the essays they marked before and find the one that matches

yeh so considering all these factors, i wonder how they can actually check plagerism, if someone knows pls tell me haha, i'm kinda curious

They can't, but generally if it's really obvious I.e. Word for word with another paper they can
