    Please help, I am FREAKING out.
    We had to do these mini online tests for our course and I thought that we only had to do the first section but it turns out that we had to do the whole five sections. So, I submitted my work and I have just received an email from my tutor saying that I will have 10% of my final score for this module deducted as I did not complete it all in the given time.

    When I saw the email, I had a panic attack and have since calmed down but I am really upset over this because I just misunderstood the tasks and now am having my grade percentage deducted! I have emailed her back the reason why but I do not know if my university will accept this.

    Please could anyone give me any advice?

    I'm not sure what advice you expect. If you handed it in late, you get a penalty. It's unfortunate, but that's how it is. There isn't anything you can do about it.

    What year of your degree are you in? If you're not in final year the amount of percentage lost of your overall degree will be miniscule. Even if you are in final year it shouldn't affect your overall degree grade much. I'm assuming the module is only worth say a quarter or less of your year.

    Do your first year marks count? If so what percentage?
