    Hi I need some help!
    I submitted work on turnit in on Friday but emailed the lecturer over the weekend that I forgot to add the reference list and if I can just add it to the paper copy and he said yes.

    I got a bit carried away and added a few things like about 400 words

    Will they click on?

    Hi I need some help!

    Im a bit gobsmacked? How many words from the limit were you originally?
    What possessed you to add 400 words and then submit that?
    Are the 400 words for the bibliography or additional text?

    If they are additional text them imo you have attempted to add a completely different version after the deadline and in a dishonest fashion. I would be really surprised if this isnt some sort of academic offence in itself. Im just gobsmacked you decided to do such a thing if it was additional text.

    There is a chance they may not cotton on, but theres a chance they will and ask you to explain the discrepancy. I think thats when you get busted without some very quick thinking. It depends how relaxed they are.

    Up to you whether you hope for the best or raise the issue. Easier if it wasnt over the word limit. Easier if they dont check the electronic copy, but look just at the hard copy. I cant see how that would be correct since they need to put it through turnitin anyway.

    You might want to go and see the student advisor in the SU.

    I forgot to submit my reference list on an assignment last year. I just emailed the lecturer and he put up another submission point for the reference list.
