Rules for Late Submission

With effect from September 2016, the rules for assignment submission are as follows. These rules will be incorporated into the Examination Conventions at the first opportunity.

  • A student can revise and re-upload their assignment submission at any time before the deadline.

  • Late submissions will be accepted, up to 144 hours after the deadline. Late submissions are generally penalized, according to the following tariff:

    Penalty
    up to 4 hours 1 marks
    up to 24 hours 5 marks
    upto 48 hours 10 marks
    up to 72 hours 20 marks
    up to 96 hours 30 marks
    up to 120 hours 40 marks
    up to 144 hours 50 marks

  • If the penalty exceeds the earned mark, the resulting grade will be zero rather than negative.

  • It is the timestamp on SSTL that determines lateness.

  • If a student submits late, the Proctors will write to them via their Oxford email address to alert them to the consequences, and to ask whether there are extenuating circumstances. The student has five working days in which to reply. If the Proctors are satisfied, they may then instruct the Examiners to waive any late penalty.

  • A student may withdraw from any assignment, without penalty, as long as they do so before the submission deadline. They will then be able to sign up for a later assignment. If a student does not formally withdraw, and then does not submit, this will count as a failure to meet the requirements for the module; the Programme cannot then grant another attempt at the assignment.
