• Your coursework will be given a zero mark if you do not submit a copy through Turnitin. Please take care
to ensure that you have fully submitted your work.
• Please ensure that you have submitted your work using the correct file format, unreadable files will
receive a mark of zero. The Faculty accepts Microsoft Office and PDF documents, unless otherwise advised
by the module leader.
• All work submitted after the submission deadline without a valid and approved reason (see below) will be
given a mark of zero.
• The University wants you to do your best. However we know that sometimes events happen which mean
that you can’t submit your coursework by the deadline – these events should be beyond your control and
not easy to predict. If this happens, you can apply for an extension to your deadline for up to two weeks,
or if you need longer, you can apply for a deferral, which takes you to the next assessment period (for
example, to the resit period following the main Assessment Boards). You must apply before the deadline.
You will find information about the process and what is or is not considered to be an event beyond your
control at https://share.coventry.ac.uk/students/Registry/Pages/Deferrals-and-Extension.aspx
