    Hi. Basically I have a truck load of coursework that has to be handed in tomorrow. Problem is, I haven't finished it yet, and I am unlikely to finish it by 4pm tomorrow. My teacher has said that this is the final deadline, and that if he doesn't have it handed to him, he will give us zero marks for our coursework section. I have checked the edexcel website, and it states the final deadline is 15th May, so I don't know why he can't give us Easter to finish it!
    Anyways, my question is... if I am unable to finish it, and cannot hand him the coursework by the end of the day, would I be able to send it off independently at all, or get it marked in another way, aslong as it's before the 15th May deadline?

    I do know it's my fault for leaving it so late, so don't have a go at me for that please!

    Forgot to mention, my teacher is on a trip tomorrow and isn't in college, so I can't even speak to him about it. I was considering finishing it over the weekend and emailing it too him, but I'm not sure if he will accept it.

    The reason the schools deadline is earlier is because the teacher needs to look at everyones coursework, mark it & moderate it before it goes off to the exam board. The 2 weeks after Easter probally wouldn't be enough time to do this, especially if your teacher has other classes and other work to mark.

    Talk to another teacher who does the subject, assuming there is more than one and see what they say.

    True, but we only have 9 people in our class, so I really don't think it would take two weeks, oh well!
