The problem I want to Change is:
The deadline to submit work online through Turnitin was changed from 12pm to 11.59am last year. It's frustrating that 12pm used to be on time but now you lose 10 marks because of a crucial minute.
This is a problem for students because:
Turnitin takes up to 2 minutes to load after a student uploads their essay. That last minute is essential for those who have been working overnight or have slow internet. People unfairly lost time to submit & late submissions likely increased.
To change this, I think RUSU should:
Campaign the university to return the deadline to 12pm. Highlight that the 12pm deadline worked for years with no issues & there will always be people submitting last minute after working hard to finish so changing it was only detrimental to students
This will help students because:
We'll have a little more time & not lose 10 marks for technically submitting late at the old time.
