Policy on late essays

There is no penalty for late assignments when you have received an extension before the due date. Late assignments will be marked, but will be assessed a penalty of at least 5% and not more than 10%.

Policy on rewrites

If you wish to do so, you can submit a rewrite of any assignment. If you do so, I shall follow this procedure:

  1. I shall give a rapid assessment of the paper (I shall read it but will make few, if any, comments)
  2. The mark will be recorded separately from the original mark
  3. At the end of the course, if your mark is close to a borderline I shall consider the mark on the rewrite, and will move your final grade above the borderline if the additional mark justifies it
