PLAGIARISM WARNING ! – Assignments should not be copied in part or in whole from any other source, except for any marked up quotations, that clearly distinguish what has been quoted from your own work. All references used must be given, and the specific page number used should also be given for any direct quotations, which should be in inverted commas. Students found copying from the internet or other sources will get zero marks and may be excluded from the university. Coursework Submission Unless instructed otherwise by your module leader, assessed coursework must be submitted by the deadline to the relevant assignment handling point in the William Morris / George Eliot buildings. Students are required to attempt all assessed aspects of their course at the first opportunity. If you don’t, and you do not have a valid deferral, you will not be allowed a re-sit. Please see the ‘Make your Mark’ page on Coventry University’s Student Portal and Section C of the ‘Essential information for all students’ insert for further information. Any student who submits a first piece of work late, without an authorised extension (or deferral) will receive a mark of 0%. There is no longer any sliding scale of late penalties. However, if you miss a deadline it is still worth submitting a piece of coursework late for a zero mark so that you do not automatically lose any re-sit opportunity. Please see the ‘Make the Date’ page on Coventry University’s Student Portal and Section C of the ‘Essential information for all students’ insert for further information.
