    Hi,

    I'm wanting to study BA Games Design and SHU is like my first preferred choice.

    They sent me an email to submit a portfolio and the deadline was really not clear to me and I ended up sending it in a whole month late!!! (Deadline: 15th Jan - I sent it: 14th Feb)

    WHAT DO I DO??

    I'm really scared that I've lost the opportunity to go there now because of my own stupid mistake

    Call them up, explain to them why you sent it in late, hopefully they'll understand....

    I doubt there's much to do but contact them and explain why you're late... unfortunately, deadlines are taken incredibly seriously, especially at universities.

    If you ever are unsure about a deadline in the future, you must ask as soon as possible. Fight back any feelings if you have to.

    Fingers crossed though!

    Hi,

    Might be best to give our admissions team a call on 0114 225 5555. Explain your situation to them and they'll be able to give you advice.

    Silly billy, if they have lots of applications who bothered to send theirs in before the deadline they may tell you they won't consider yours or you will have to wait at the end of the queue. It shows them you can't meet the deadline hope you won't do this at uni you won't get spoonfed like you did at school.

    Why was the deadline really unclear to you, when I assume it wasnt unclear to people who submitted in time.

    If in doubt then ask.
