Where & how do I submit my work?
All information on how to submit your work is available on the KEATS assessments page and will be explained in detail by your Module Lead.
I am MPhil/ PhD student, when can I submit my thesis?
Please speak to your Programme Leader or Supervisor.
What is a ‘similarity report’, and what does ‘similarity report pending’ mean?
The similarity report checks your submission against the Turnitin database. If there are instances where your writing is similar to, or matches against, other sources, a similarity report will flag this for your instructor to review.
If you receive receipt of the submission, it means that your work has been already submitted so allow at least an hour before refreshing the browser to view a similarity report. If you still can't see the similarity report after you have refreshed your browser, please check if the submitted file is readable and you can access it.
Important to know:
- During busy times, especially around the submission dates, the similarity report might take longer than expected. Please allow plenty of time to submit before the deadline, to avoid having marks deducted.
- You will not be able to see similarity report if your work is submitted in a non-permitted format or scanned/photo version. More information on permittable formats is available on KEATS.
If you submitted your work in a permitted format and still experience issues, than please log an enquiry with the Assessments Team.
I’ve forgotten my candidate number or I’m unsure how to find my candidate number
You can find your candidate number by logging onto your Student Records, under 'Candidate Number' tab.
For more detail about this, please refer to ‘Finding your candidate number’ in our article Support when registering for your exams & accessing your exam timetable.
If you still can’t find your candidate number and you need to submit work, please contact your Module Lead. Your submission will still be found, but it may delay the marking.
Your Module Lead’s contact information can be found in your Module Handbook, which is available on KEATS.
What happens if I submit work late?
If you submit within 24 hours from your submission date your work still be accepted and marked as normal.
However, 10 raw marks will be deducted from the component mark. If the deduction takes your component mark below the pass mark, the component mark will be capped at the minimum pass mark (40% for undergraduate assessment, 50% for postgraduate taught assessment).
Work submitted after the 24-hour deadline will receive a mark of zero.
For examinations, you must take and submit the examination within the permitted timeframe. Examinations which are not submitted within the permitted timeframe will receive a mark of zero.
What if I submitted my work in the wrong format?
Your work will not be marked and you will be marked as a fail.
More information on permittable formats is available on KEATS.
It is your responsibility to check if the submission is in the right format.
If you submitted in the wrong format, you would still receive a receipt, as this function investigates only the act of submission and not the contents/formats.
Can I submit my work if I have submitted a mitigating circumstances form?
If you have applied for mitigating circumstances, and then decide to take your assessment, you can go ahead and submit your work. Your application for mitigation will be 'voided'.
If you wish to withdraw your mitigating circumstances form, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org once you have submitted your assessment.
For more details about mitigating circumstances, please refer to our Assessment category.
I don’t think I’ll be able to submit my work on time; can I apply for mitigating circumstances?
For the details you need about the university’s mitigating circumstances process, including how to apply, what evidence you’ll need and how you’ll find out the outcome of your application, please see the Mitigating Circumstances section in Assessment.
I have queries about my assessment/exam arrangements and timetable
For queries around this, as well as information about mitigating circumstances which may affect your ability to take an exam or submit coursework, please refer to our Assessment category where we have lots of articles on these topics.
If you are a PhD student with queries around your viva, such as when it will take place, this will be determined by your Course Leader/Dissertation Supervisor.
Can my friend or relative collect my work?
If you wish a friend or relative to collect your work for you, please let us know beforehand, by submitting an online enquiry and choosing ‘Assessments’ from the drop-down options when logging your enquiry.
You will need to provide us with all of your details, including:
- Your candidate number
- Module title
- Module code
- The full name of the person collecting your work
When will I be able to see mark on KEATS?
All submissions will normally be marked within 4 weeks.
- On the 28th day after you have submitted your assignment, you will be able to access the provisional grade for your work.
- All grades will then be presented at an Examination Board for ratification 4-6 weeks after this date.
- Your ratified grade will be available via your Student Records page up to 1 week after the relevant Examination Board has taken place.
