2. Module Assessment
The assessment method and coursework weighting can be found in section 1 of the MID entry for this module on http://mid.coventry.ac.uk/
All work submitted after the submission deadline without an approved valid reason (see below) will be given a mark of zero. This is not the same as a non-submission, as a late submission counts as an attempt and a mark of zero may allow you to resit the coursework (see section 2.6 below on referrals).
You should note that short deferrals (extensions) of up to three calendar weeks can only be given for genuine "force majeure" and medical reasons, not for bad planning of your time. Please note that theft, loss, or failure to keep a back-up file, are not valid reasons. The short deferral must be applied for on or before the submission date.

Application Forms along with the supporting evidence should go to the relevant Student Support Office (WMG), for undergraduates. For a longer delay in submission a student may apply for a (long)
