Submission and Citation
All essays must be submitted via the turnitin link on the unit iLearn page by 23:59 on the due date.
All words and ideas that are not your own must be cited correctly. See iLearn for further details.
University Late Assessment Penalty
Unless a Special Consideration request has been submitted and approved, (a) a penalty for lateness will apply – two (2) marks out of 100 will be deducted per day for assignments submitted after the due date – and (b) no assignment will be accepted more than seven (7) days (incl. weekends) after the original submission deadline. No late submissions will be accepted for timed assessments – e.g. quizzes, online tests.
No consideration for lost work or technology issues
It is the student’s responsibility to keep a copy (electronic or otherwise) of all written work submitted for each unit. No consideration will be given to claims of ‘lost work’ or technology issues no matter what the circumstances. It is your responsibility to ensure that your computer is fully compatible with iLearn during exam periods.
Extensions and Special Consideration:
Please view the Special Consideration Policy at: https://students.mq.edu.au/study/my-study-program/special-consideration
All Special Consideration notifications are to be made online via the University’s Ask MQ system.
Remember, the University has determined that some circumstances routinely encountered by students are not acceptable grounds for claiming Disruption of Studies. These grounds include, but are not limited, to:
- Routine demands of employment
- Routine family problems such as tension with or between parents, spouses, and other people closely involved with the student
- Difficulties adjusting to university life, to the self-discipline needed to study effectively, and the demands of academic work
- Stress or anxiety associated with examinations, required assignments or any aspect of academic work
- Routine need for financial support
- Routine demands of sport, clubs and social or extra-curricular activities
Conditions existing prior to commencing a unit of study are not grounds for Special Consideration. The student is responsible for managing their workload in light of any known or anticipated problems. The student is responsible for contacting Student Support Services if they have a chronic condition.
Re-mark of Work During the Semester:
A re-mark will be considered only on the following grounds:
1. Administrative error
2. The feedback provided on the assessment does not justify the grade awarded
