I am panicking about an assignment. I just checked my Turnitin account and realised it's the wrong document. it's passed the deadline for submission. I am hoping my tutor sees my email and lets me send it to her. has anyone got any advice as I'm panicking now

Can't you submit assignments late? It usually comes with a penalty.

It depends on how lenient your lecturer is. Universities usually have a policy that it's the student's responsibility to ensure that the correct document is submitted, but some lecturers may let you off if you have recognised your mistake soon enough and/or you're in your first year.

Did you email the right document before or after the deadline?

that's exactly what has happened and basically cause me and my personal tutor are worried about the marks. my personal tutor is now going to help me with organisation of my work and help me as much as possible with my second assignment. so that worst comes worst it won't affect my final grades

What percentage of your module mark was the assignment worth?

I mean, best case scenario: your lecturer accepts the emailed assignment with no penalty. Middle case scenario: your lecturer accepts the emailed assignment buts caps it at 40% due to it being late. Worst case scenario: your lecturer doesn't accept the emailed assignment and you get given a mark of 0 (assuming that the wrongly submitted document cannot be marked).

basically they are going to mark the submitted assignment and as it's relevant they are going to mark it. but I know referencing is wrong on that particular assignment so that's why she has decided to help me to boost my grades

Is it wrong in that it might come up in the plagiarism check?

but she is taking it into consideration. and in that case it would just be between 40 or 50 marks which should not affect my final grades for graduation
