Penalties for Late Submission
Unless you have been granted an extension, any essay submitted after the relevant deadline listed above will be penalized as follows:
Up to 24 hours late: 5 mark deduction
Between 24 hours and one week late: 15 mark deduction
Students are advised to submit essays even if they will receive a late-submission penalty. Failure to submit all the required assessed coursework will result in a final result for the course of ‘incomplete’. UCL regulations require that a student completes the assessment for all course units taken during their degree programme in order to graduate.
Work submitted more than one week late will receive a mark of 0.
If you find yourself in the position of submitting an essay more than one week late, without having been granted an extension, you must contact the Departmental Tutor or the Undergraduate Administrator so that they can explain the implications.
Assessed work must not exceed the required word count.
Any essay found after submission to have exceeded the word limit will be penalized as follows:
Up to 10%: 10 mark deduction
More than 10%: A mark of 0
Please note that penalties are not applied by the teacher marking the essay, but by the Chair of the Board of Examiners, and are included in the calculation of the final overall mark for the course. You will be notified of this mark in June.
