Question:(Last edited: Wednesday, 24 June 2020, 8:39 AM)
Submission Deadline: My submission deadline is at 16:00. How late can I submit my assignment on Turnitin?
Submissions of assignments just a few minutes before the deadline can be a risky issue. This is because it can take a few minutes before the system registers your uploaded work. Therefore, the student must always upload all assignments with sufficient time left in order for the work to be stamped in time. Submitting with sufficient time will also allow the student to correct any mistakes in the assignment. Consigning submissions at least 24 hours before the actual deadline may be a safe measure and can prevent any last-minute stress or failure of submissions.
For any technical reason for non-submission or failure to upload assignments, please contact your teacher and email@example.com.

Submission Deadline: What should I do if I miss my submission deadline?
Contact your process tutor as well as the module teacher in the case of missing a submission deadline. They will decide on the next course of action. You cannot submit your work once the submission due deadline has passed.

Support English: Where can I find information to help me understand about Support English (SE) and Support English Assessment (SEA)?
Support English Assessment (SEA) is a mandatory Diagnostic Writing Test that every new student has to take. The purpose of this test is to recognise, at an early stage, the students who exhibit weak writing skills. Students who fail this test are then directed to join the Support English module in order to raise their English standards to enable them to take the Academic English module.
