    I can hand mine in upto a week late and still get 80%.

    You've been on here for a few hours, maybe you should unplug that network cable..?
    Thats shan!

    We only get 50%/60% depending on the module and we have 24 hours after the deadline!

    Yeah but I'm at the same uni as him and if I hand some work in late it won't even get marked!!! I think some pieces lose 50% if they are late, but thy are the larger assignments, not the small ones that i'm doing!!!

    Yea I know! Its so generous.

    I havent taken advantage of it yet, but I should have done on my last becuase I wasnt anyway near upto 80%. Left it til the last minute so it wasnt complete. I still think it looks better to hand it in on time and get 70%, then hand it in a week late and get 80%.

    Yup uni deadlines are a *****. I have an essay due in fri noon and I'm slaving away.

    Some unis have a late submission automatic fail policy just to scare you even more.

    I had a tutorial to prepare for (done at 7 this morning instead), and 2 lab reports to write (procrastinating at this very minute). They're due in tomorrow, but I'm out tonight. I really hate lab reports. If anyone understands chromatography of proteins to degree level, please feel free to explain to me!

    Oh and I lose all marks if it's a minute late too.

    Yeah but I work for uni and recieved a letter a month or so back guaranteeing my appointment until the September after my 65th birthday - so basically unless I screw up big time I'm ok...so where's the incentive to work my arse off?

    Oh there he is - shouting at someone

    What homeworks or similar things do people have unfinished right now? And is your time on this forum hindering you?

    I owe:
    Two Politics essays, one comparing civil rights between the UK and the USA, the other on the decline of Parliament...
    Two Maths courseworks, for Mechanics 1 and Statistics 1...
    The answers to extra questions on Accounting my distance learning tutor sent me because she feels the need to push me since I'm gunning for Cambridge... they are on incomplete accounting records and bookkeeping for partnerships...
    The first draft of my Economics coursework, on how some countries can control inflation better than others...

    A pretty long list, and I should crack on but I'd rather be here!
