Academic lectures have a responsibility to ensure equity and fairness to all students who submit their assessments on time.
For these reasons, you need to establish genuine circumstances for an extension to be granted. You will need to supply documentary evidence to establish the genuine nature of your circumstance.
Please note; Extensions more of 7 days will not generally be granted unless there are extenuating circumstances.
