  1. Extensions and Mitigating Circumstances

Applications for extensions and mitigating circumstances, with supporting evidence (such as medical certificates), should be made through the Student Self-service Portal (SSP).

6.1          Extensions

If a student experiences unforeseen circumstances that may prevent the student submitting an assignment at the first opportunity, it is possible to request an extension of up to two weeks. The length of extension requested will be evaluated by the Academic Administrator.

The granting of an extension will depend upon the nature of the difficulty the student is experiencing, whether the difficulty could and should have been anticipated, and the extent to which the circumstances were outside of the student’s control. For example, health difficulties would usually provide legitimate grounds for an extension; last minute computer issues or clashing deadlines would not. If an extension of up to two weeks is not sufficient the student should make a claim for mitigating circumstances.

NB: No extensions can be granted for TCAs and examinations.

6.2          Mitigating circumstances

If a student is unable to sit an exam or submit an assignment, the student may be able to claim mitigating circumstances, which, if accepted, would allow the student to complete the assessment for the first time at a later date, and receive an uncapped mark for it. The exam would be taken at the next sitting or the assignment would be submitted at the next submission opportunity, following the acceptance of the student’s mitigating circumstances. A claim for mitigating circumstances must be submitted before the original date for submitting the assignment or sitting the exam.

Mitigating circumstances are defined as a serious or acute problem, or an event beyond a student’s control or ability to foresee, which has prevented completion of assignment/s or attendance at examination/s. If a student is experiencing unforeseen or unexpected events – such as serious illness or severe disruption to their personal life – that may affect the student’s ability to take assignment/s or sit examination/s, the student should meet with their Module Leader, Course Leader or a Student Success Advisor to discuss the available options.

The University of Northampton’s Mitigating Circumstances Policy and Procedure document can be accessed through our Quality and Enhancement Manual:

  1. Word limits

All written assignments include clear guidance on the maximum amount that should be written in order to address the requirements of the assessment task (a ‘word limit’).

If the submission exceeds the word limit by more than 10%, the submission will only be marked up to and including the additional 10%. Anything over this will not be included in the final grade for the item of assessment.

Abstracts, reference lists, and footnotes are excluded from any word limit requirements.

Where a submission is notably under the word limit, the full submission will be marked on the extent to which the requirements of the assessment task have been met. Generally speaking, submissions under the word limit fall short of the requirements of the assessment task.

Appendix 2: Declaration of Authorship

By submitting this work electronically to LSBM and the University of Northampton, I/we confirm that

I/we have read and understood the Declaration and Definitions below:

Declaration of Authorship:

  1. I/we hold a copy of this assignment which can be produced if the original is lost/damaged.
  1. This assignment is my/our original work and no part of it has been copied from any other student’s work or from any other source except where due acknowledgement is made.
  1. No part of this assignment has been written for me/us by any other person except where such collaboration has been authorised and as detailed in the Assessment Brief.
  1. I/we have not previously submitted this work for any other course/module.

Definitions

I/we understand that:

  1. Plagiarism is the presentation of the work, idea or creation of another person as though it is one’s own. It is a form of cheating and is a serious academic offence which may lead to expulsion. Plagiarised material can be drawn from, and presented in, written, graphic and visual form, including electronic data, and oral presentations. Plagiarism occurs when the origin of the material used is not appropriately cited.
  1. Collusion is working with someone else on an assessment task which is intended to be wholly your own work.
  1. Contract cheating/Commissioning is where you contract out academic assessment to writers and purchase back the finished work and submit it as your own.
  1. Duplication/Replication is submitting the same material more than once for the purposes of obtaining academic credit.
  1. Fabrication refers specifically to the falsification of data, information or citations in an academic exercise, typically an assignment. This includes false excuses for missing deadlines and false claims to have submitted work. It may be specifically referred to as falsification.
  1. Your completed assignment is submitted and checked for plagiarism through the use of plagiarism detection software called Turnitin. The Course Leader’s decision based on the plagiarism report is final; no appeal may be made by a student once such a decision is made.

Please note: Submitting work which is not your own [and cheating in exams] can be considered as fraud2 and handled in accordance with the Academic Integrity and Misconduct Policy. Penalties can include:

Reduction in grade for assignment.

Grade for module reduced to AG [fail for academic misconduct] and right to repeat module withdrawn.

Termination from studies.

Further information on plagiarism can be found in your Course Handbooks Section 13.10.

  • If a student is suspected of commissioning (e.g. paying someone to write an assignment for them), this could be classed as fraud under student disciplinary procedures, separate to academic misconduct procedures. If proven, the consequences would be severe, including removal from their course of study.
