Late Work
All written work, whether submitted on time or not, will be graded and returned to students with appropriate pedagogical feedback, and an indication of the grade which represents its intrinsic academic worth.
Work that is submitted after the due date, without an official extension, will be penalised academically. However, either the Academic Dean or the Associate Dean (Postgraduate and Research) may exercise discretion for medical or serious pastoral reasons.
  • Work submitted up to one week late without an official extension will be awarded a grade one level below its intrinsic worth, as follows:
    • High Distinction reduced to Distinction (with a mark of 84)
    • Distinction reduced to a Credit (with a mark of 74)
    • Credit reduced to Pass (with a mark of 64)
    • Pass recorded as a Pass (with a mark of 50)
  • Work submitted between one and four weeks late without an official extension will be awarded a Pass grade only (with a mark of 50), unless it fails to reach a pass standard.
  • Work submitted more than four weeks late without an official extension will be awarded a Fail grade.
