Hi, the IBO aren't as heartless as they are said to be. You won't not get your Diploma just for a minor citation error, they are humans and will take into account that you have forgotten or mistaken, or just not know how to cite. Hence, you will just be penalised in terms of one of the criteria that is associated with the format of the essay/ references. Worst case scenario is that you'll lose a mark or two for that. But mainly, as long as you've cited other sources, you've successfully managed to showcase that you're able to cite properly. Chill! :)

You'll be fine - really. Don't stress. It is unlikely even that you will lose marks even IF they DO notice.

 

It is not worth stressing or losing sleep over. Trust me.  They are human and so are you. It is a very small mistake. They understand that.
