Coursework number or Title 2 Integrated Assessment [Contributes 50% to total module mark]
Kylie enjoys eating chocolate and as she has a nut allergy, her preference is for Choc Delux premium brands as they do not contain nuts or nut products. For Easter she receives a large box of her usual chocolates but after eating only a small number, suffers severe anaphylactic shock and is taken to hospital for emergency treatment. As she is kept in for observation she is unable to perform her new single live on various pre-arranged TV shows and the lack of publicity means the single does not reach its forecasted number 1 position in the record charts and sales of her new album are much lower than anticipated.
Advise the Board of Directors of Choc Delux of their liability to Kylie under the tort of negligence.
1. All work submitted after the submission deadline without an approved valid reason (see below) will be given a mark of zero. (This is not the same as a non-submission, as a late submission counts as an attempt and a mark of zero may allow you to resit the coursework.).
2. Short deferrals (extensions) of up to three calendar weeks can only be given for genuine "force majeure" and medical reasons, not for bad planning of your time. Please note that theft, loss, or failure to keep a back-up file, are not valid reasons. The short deferral must be applied for on or before the submission date. You can apply for a short deferral by submitting an Examination/ Coursework Deferral Application Form. Application Forms along with the supporting evidence should go to the relevant Student Support Office (WMG 03) For a longer delay in submission a student may apply for a (long) deferral.
