Okay so I've gone home from uni for Christmas early, had an essay to do and was just gonna send it in the post...left it late (doing it now), stressed about if it will get there in time......... I will post it in tomorrow mornings first mail collect with a first class stamp, I live in Durham (near Newcastle) and it needs to be in Manchester this Monday at my uni by 5pm at latest. Considering its Christmas and post being busy, CHANCES OF GETTING THERE ON TIME??? Stress mess.
Our postal submissions count as long as the post mark is from before the deadline. So if it's due at 5pm on Thursday, as long as it's posted before 4:59pm Thursday, it counts. Check that your dept. doesn't do that?
