This assignment must be submitted, with a BES coursework cover sheet attached, to William Morris and also via the module web (TURNITIN) by 16.00 on the above deadline.

Please note:
1.     All work submitted after the submission deadline without an approved valid reason (see below) will be given a mark of zero. (This is not the same as a non-submission, as a late submission counts as an attempt and a mark of zero may allow you to resit the coursework.).
2.    Short deferrals (extensions) of up to three calendar weeks can only be given for genuine “force majeure” and medical reasons, not for bad planning of your time. Please note that theft, loss, or failure to keep a back-up file, are not valid reasons. The short deferral must be applied for on or before the submission date. You can apply for a short deferral by submitting an Examination/ Coursework Deferral Application Form. Application Forms along with the supporting evidence should go to the relevant Student Support Office (WM404). For a longer delay in submission a student may apply for a (long) deferral. 



Students MUST keep a copy and/or an electronic file of their assignment.
Please also submit an electronic copy of your assignment via the module web. ( See instructions on module web)    

The electronic version of your assignment may be used to enable checks to be made using anti-plagiarism software and approved plagiarism checking websites.

Marking Scheme

Please see attached below


Please note – It is taken for granted that your work will be suitably academically underpinned. Work that is not suitably supported by suitable academic references will be subject to failure.
 
Return of Marked Work
Marked work will be returned in class.  .


PLAGIARISM WARNING ! – Assignments should not be copied in part or in whole from any other source, except for any marked up quotations, that clearly distinguish what has been quoted from your own work. All references used must be given, and the specific page number used should also be given for any direct quotations, which should be in inverted commas. Students found copying from the internet or other sources will get zero marks and may be excluded from the university.

Coursework Submission
Unless instructed otherwise by your module leader, assessed coursework must be submitted by the deadline to the relevant assignment handling point in the William Morris / George Eliot buildings.

Students are required to attempt all assessed aspects of their course at the first opportunity. If you don't, and you do not have a valid deferral, you will not be allowed a re-sit. Please see the 'Make your Mark' page on Coventry University's Student Portal and Section C of the ‘Essential information for all students’ insert for further information.


Any student who submits a first piece of work late, without an authorised extension (or deferral) will receive a mark of 0%.  There is no longer any sliding scale of late penalties. However, if you miss a deadline it is still worth submitting a piece of coursework late for a zero mark so that you do not automatically lose any re-sit opportunity. Please see the ‘Make the Date’ page on Coventry University’s Student Portal and Section C of the ‘Essential information for all students’ insert for further information.
