yes its plagiarism, and yes its in there and yes one can regurgitate threethousand words come monday.
i want to know everythign abuot the HSC marking centre to see hwo they deal with this shit.
Geez, just relax -- hasn't your english teacher gone over this? If you're so stressed about it you should have asked them. You just have to understand that there are almost 62,000 exams the marking centre has to go through, and each marker gets a certain bunch, and those are then double marked (I think, could be confusing it with another subject though). My English teacher, who is also a senior marker, says that you do pick up on sections taken from crib resources (e.g. Excel) and certain phrases that are common to certain centres but I don't think you get penalised, or not too harshly at least. I don't think there's too much they can do about it.
Not saying this is the definitive truth, but it's at least some sort of answer.
Why not ring up the Advice Line, or a teacher, if you're so concerned about it, or wait for a few more people to post.
