Write quickly, hopefully once you start the rest will flow and you will get it done just in time.

And get off MN grin

do what you can and submit what you have 15 mins before deadline.

You will get points for it. They are not their to trip you up or punish you. If they can give you points for what you've handed in they will.

I'm assuming most unis are the same as OU.

Go with what you've got - it's always worth handing in something rather than nothing.

You need a strategy for the future though so this doesn't happen again. I learned to reference as I wrote, which feels time-consuming but saves time in the long run (I've just completed my MSc dissertation which had 25 pages of references!). Save everything. Back everything up. Store drafts. Write little and often.

Good luck!

Do the referencing.
Try and tie the paragraphs together.
Do an intro and closing paragraph.

You can cheat by corrupting the file...details on Internet

OU can get an extension, right?

They will also average for a module you omit iirc?

I submitted half an essay once, got 26%
