Is memorising sample answers plagiarism?

Say i learnt an entire Irish essay off by heart like completely to the letter, with absolutely no difference between what's in the book and what i wrote out in the exam, would that count as plagiarism? Are we allowed to fully write off essays that are identical to sample ones? I learn essays by memorising shit exactly how it is, so every word would be identical. I feel like it's unlikely that they'd even know that it came from a sample essay, but what if the worst case scenario happened, where the book author is also an examiner and recognises the essay as their own? Would they just correct it as normal, or would i be punished and lose marks?

Yes it is technically plagiarism but I wouldn't worry about it.

They would not care at all. In the very unlikely event that the examiner recognises a letter, they would just ignore it
