What program were you doing it in?
Most have an auto save function if the computer just switches off and would be in recoverable files.

It was Word document.
I've checked it didn't save at all, I was using the online version instead of the app,

What's the difference between the deadline and the real deadline?

There is maybe a hidden cached document, can you see hidden files on your computer?

Edit: if you were using the online version, it automatically saves occasionally doesn't it?

Check if their is file recovery microsoft docs often save in case a computer crashes.

No use now but:
Save to a hard storage type & a cloud service and always regularly update.

I once lost like 10 hours work from my undergrad dissertation due to a crashed computer, ive never made such a mistake again.

So the real deadline is where our coursework gets sent to the exam board and marked and the deadline is where my teacher goes through it and gives me feedback on it,

It does but for some reason it didn't save.

Sometimes you can get it back, when it says chrome didn't shut down correctly - did you get that?

Nah I didn't.

Should I just email my teacher and see what he says?

I think it saves them to a cache on the computer normally, its probably best to look on youtube on how to search for recovery files on Microsoft programs its been a while since ive used this.
