Please see the information on coursework below. Information is also available on submitting coursework.
Online submission confirmation will not show on Evision. For a Weblearn assignment, once you have submitted online you can check that you have submitted successfully by checking your submission information; if your Weblearn assignment shows you have submitted, and the submission time is before 3pm on the day of your deadline, you have submitted correctly. You will also be sent a submission email to your University email address (if you wish the receipt to go to an address other than your University email account please use the University’s email forwarding facility) and it is essential that you open this and download the digital receipt.
If your submission is via Turnitin you should download the digital receipt which is available via Weblearn immediately after you have submitted your work.
For hardcopy submissions, the coversheet barcode is electronically scanned by your School Office and confirmation of submission is directly recorded on to Evision. An immediate electronic receipt, confirming submission, will also be sent to your University email address. Your submission will also be available to view immediately within Evision via the ‘Record of My Coursework Submissions’ page.
It is important that you retain your confirmation email or electronic receipt in case of any future queries. It is also essential that you keep a copy of the coursework until the results are published on Evision.

Assignments and Submission
Where students have a coursework reassessment opportunity in the summer reassessment period, reassessment for coursework, project or portfolio-based assessments and examinations will normally involve the completion of a new task. Students who need to check the task should find this via Weblearn, and in many cases, it will also be detailed in the Module Booklet.
If your original assessment task was coursework then your reassessment will also be coursework and in most cases you will be expected to submit your work in the same format as for the original assignment, i.e. online or hardcopy. However, please note that time-constrained assessments, such as In-Class Tests, are normally considered as exams in the reassessment period. You should check ExamTrack for details.
Assessment submission and In Year Reassessment for foundation year and first year students
You are required to attempt all assessment components for each module. It will help your progression if you submit and pass each component at the first submission point. Failure to submit an assessment component in modules is likely to have serious consequences for progression through your course, and may result in you having a lot of reassessment during the summer or delay progression on your course.
If you do not submit work for an assessment component a mark of zero will be recorded for that component.
For those at Level 3 (foundation year) or Level 4 (first year) who have submitted their assessment at the first submission point and unfortunately failed, you do have the option of taking an in-year reassessment.
What is In-Year Reassessment?
If you are a student at Level 3 or Level 4, you have the option to resubmit your reassessment in year, provided:
- You submitted the original assessment and unfortunately failed
- The failed component is coursework (not an exam or presentation or groupwork)
- The original deadline for the initial assessment was before 31 March
When can I submit the In Year Reassessment?
You have 10 days from receiving your feedback from the original assessment to resubmit your in year reassessment. Your marks for the assessment will not be capped.
What if I cannot submit the In Year Reassessment?
You will still be entitled to your end of year reassessment opportunity in the July reassessment period. The deadline is Friday 26 July 2024 at 3pm.
What if I cannot submit the In Year Reassessment? Can I submit a Mitigating Circumstances claim?
Unfortunately you cannot submit a mitigating circumstances claim for the in year reassessment. The mitigating circumstances process for other types of assessment remains the same.
What if I cannot submit the In Year Reassessment? Can I have an extension?
Unfortunately coursework/self-certification extensions are no longer permitted for any assessments.
What if I submit the In Year Reassessment and fail?
If you do submit the in year reassessment and unfortunately fail again, you will still be entitled to your end of year reassessment opportunity in the July reassessment period. The deadline is Friday 26 July 2024 at 3pm.
