What happens if u miss an assignment at uni?
i feel sick :(
find out on your uni website. then take some speed. then do the assignment. then hand it in tomorrow.
and make you resubmit it with a "pass" as the best possible mark. which doesnt matter in first year.
go to the doctor's and get a sicknote for depression/stress/anxiety and take it to your tutor or the director of studies in your department.
if you are literally worried sick, this isnt even lying.
it may be your fault that the work has become stressful, but they dont encourage students to damage their health working.
except i dont have a doctor in london
i think im just gonna explain what i've said here and admit im an idiot and im gonna try really hard from now on.
not much. email the tutor or phone them and make an excuse.
depending on how it works, and if it's not too late (i.e. a day or so) they might not have noticed yet. so you could take the chance..
if u just hide in my bed will it all go away?
they drop marks progressively the later it is. then you redo it. and can only score a bare pass
we had that too.
so, yeah a bare pass.
not much. Go and grovel, then agree to do it by a new date. Then never miss one again.
Check your course handbooks etc.
But normally, penalties for lateness up to a point where you can only get the minimum pass mark.
Although, if you have a good excuse, you should be able to get an extension.
and they tell your mum
but im utterly fucked in every respect, i have been to every lecture of one module and done al the work, but one module ive been to NONE so i decided today i'd let them chuck me off it and re-take it or something.
i dont even know what the assignment is really!
i hate myself.
Surely the bordom/slackness takes longer than that to set it?
This is coming from one of the laziest people I know...
and im a silly and basically kept getting scared i'd missed too much and they'd tell me off in front of everyone and then each tome i went to go id start feeling sick and then not go :(
if so, do not worry at all. it doesnt count.
go and see a tutor. tell them the module was crap or summat. You will probably have to do an extra one next term though.
now she has a baby
except she'd probably tell me off :(
i feel sick.
is so that there's someone you can actually talk to if you have problems and get behind. Arrange a meeting with yours, explain the situation and it'll all be sorted in a matter of days.
But whatever you do, don't go out and get pissed to try and forget it. It's a harsh reality. Stay in, work on it a bit and then talk to your tutor later.
i think my personal tutor is my lecturer for the module ths essay is for though. And she seemed quite scary. But i havent had a tutor meeting with her.
Firstly, stop worrying because worrying is useless, unproductive and solves nothing. Admit your errors to whoever you should and be humble enough to accept criticism. Don't slacken again. It is not a major problem and is definitely a regular occurrence at university.
worry like fuck.
And as other people have said - your personal tutor is there to help, and WILL be used to people making silly mistakes in their first year.
you will not fail a year that ultimately counts for nothing towards your degree for one missed assignment in the second month of it
im uber sensitive and i do not want to cry like a baby in front of people.
I no longer feel like crying :)
DiSers are on the whole, quite lovely people!
Even though I didn't do anything.
and for every day late it would be deducted 2%...it was only worth 10% anyway...
