6.8 Handing Work in Late, in Error or Non-submission

The submission deadline is standardised at 10am for all assessed coursework for disciplines within the College of Humanities.

Please note not only the date on which work is due, but the time by which it is due. Work submitted on the right date but after the time given will be treated as a late submission and capped at 40% UG or 50% PG (after two weeks a mark of zero is given).  The mark that the assignment would have achieved if not capped, will be indicated on the feedback for information.

If you are submitting online to a deadline you must submit BEFORE the time to both Turnitin and E-BART. For example if the deadline is 10am you must submit to both systems by 09.59.59 at the latest. Assignments submitted even a second after this time will be registered as late. If you fail to submit to both systems before the deadline but have submitted to Turnitin on time, we may be able to reconsider capping the assessment mark provided this is your first attempt at submitting a piece of work and depending upon the circumstances – please do contact the Info Point if you find yourself in this situation.

For specific modules there may be further penalties for the non-submission of coursework that is required but not assessed towards the final mark of the module, such as a reduction in the overall mark for the module. You should consult the relevant departmental handbook for that module, and the module template, for further information about such penalties.

Also please note that submission of assessments will count as one of the compulsory 'contact points' necessary for the continued registration of international students (see section 2.3 on the Points Based Monitoring system).

In cases where the better of two assessments counts towards the module mark (better of two essays, presentations or oral examinations), the failure to produce/attend the second assessment will result in the final mark for the first assessment being halved in the calculation of the overall module mark.

Where work is submitted which, in the opinion of the module lecturer, is merely perfunctory, and/or submitted solely with a view to avoiding the imposition of the penalties described above, it will be within the power of the lecturer to deem the work as so inadequate as to fail to amount to the submission of a serious piece of work. Where the lecturer so deems, then the above penalties will be applied.

The submission of the wrong piece of assessment will automatically result in a mark of zero being awarded. Any student who submits the wrong piece of assessment has the opportunity to re-submit the correct piece of assessment within 14 days of the incident being identified. The re-submitted piece of assessment will receive a capped mark of a maximum of 40% (UG) or 50% (PGT). Students are reminded to check the eBART submission reminder when they submit pieces of assessment to ensure that they have submitted the correct piece of assessment.
