I am currently finishing my MSc (Psychology) and had finished all my assignments and research project when today I get a letter from the disciplinary committee saying that I had been suspected of plagiarism for my literature review. I can resubmit my work but any pass mark will be capped at 40%. Anyways they've been a bit harsh and I will appeal however if worst comes to worst it means I can forget about a distinction and am scared I won't even get a merit (because the lit review is worth 40% of the research module with the dissertation at 60% so that means it weights a lot). So my question is, thinking of the worst here, if I only get a 2:2 (less than 60%) for my MSc do I still have a chance of applying to a Clinical Psychology Doctorate?
Any help will be most appreciated as I am freaking out beyond belief here, because I am thinking this is my career in academia ruined :-(
