  • You do not need to add anything to Add Comments unless specifically asked to by your tutor
  • Click on Browse My Computer to add a document
  • Browse to the location where you assignment is saved and click Open
  • This will add the assignment to this area ready for submission. If you have 2 or more documents to add, click Browse My Computer again

Note: If you have more than one file you must attach all of them before pressing Submit . Once you have pressed Submit you will not be able to add any more files.

You are advised not to use the Save as Draft option. Once a file has been added and Save as Draft pressed, you will not be able to delete the file. The only solution in this case is to ask you tutor to clear the attempt and start again.
