Assignment Submission: Will I get an extension in assignment submissions if the quality of Internet in my home country is poor?
There is no extension of deadline for submitting assignments online. It is the student's responsibility to submit the assignment on time. Many problems can surface at the last minute, such as technical glitches, failed internet connection, system or software failure etc.
If you are aware that you might encounter technical problems from your home country, it is best that you find alternative ways to submit your assignment before the deadline.
If you are still not able to solve your technical issue, please contact email@example.com at least 30 minutes before the deadline, with the name of the module assignment and screenshot(s) of the exact technical issue. Email sent after the deadline will not be attended to.
