POINTS TO REMEMBER WHEN SUBMITTING YOUR ASSIGNMENT:
Mode of submission: Please submit a hard copy ONLY and include the name of the Lecturer, Programme Name & your respective Programme Manager on the envelope and copy the assignment to firstname.lastname@example.org by or before due date. The electronic copy on email@example.com is a back-up only and will not be marked.
All assignments submitted should include the new TRIPLICATE Form (available at OUCC/Reduit)
When you are submitting the hard copy, please submit to the respective tutor on the due date during the time of the session of that tutor. If you wish to submit before the deadline, submit to Learning Resource Centres Reduit (weekdays open) before due date. Assignments received outside these hours and after the deadline are considered late submissions.
In case the hard copy is received after the due date, marks will be deducted as per OU policy even if the soft copy has been sent on the due date. The soft copy is not considered a submission. The onus is on learner to ensure that the hard copy reaches before/on the due date. The current penalty is 2% per day (weekends and public holidays included) for any assignment received after the due date which the tutor will deduct from the final mark.
