|Back To Course Information|
Students will be required to send their completed assignments to Dr Jim Pitts by email. This will be four times a year, in November, February, April and July. Exact deadlines will be posted on the timetable and these will be followed by the release of the course work answers by individual email after the final deadline. However, students are strongly advised to complete their coursework as soon as possible, after it is made available, and submit it then rather than wait to send all of them in at the very last minute. It is usually better to submit part of the coursework on time than to submit all of it late.
College Guidelines for submission of coursework
The College has now started the new common award structure [CAS] which places very strict requirements on submission deadlines, see the URLs below;
that is handed in on
Work on time, handed in on or before the correct submission
deadline [Timetable] will
be marked normally.
that is handed in late
Work that is handed in after the correct submission deadline, but before the final deadline, will be marked normally. Then two marks will be recorded, (a) the penalty mark of 50% [assuming it was above a pass standard] and (b) the real mark that would have been awarded if the work was not submitted late, but on time. Only if you submit accepted mitigating circumstances do you get a mark above 50%.
Work that is handed in after the final deadline, when model
answers are published, will be awarded 0%. No mitigation will
apply in these circumstances.
Work that is handed in late for "good reason"
We will provide feedback within four weeks of the final hand in
deadline for each assignment that is submitted on time.
Work that misses the normal deadline will be dealt with on an individual basis.
Final Deadline:- Deadline date plus fourteen days: As above,
the normal published deadline plus fourteen days unless stated
