nebarius Say more :
OP here! I didn't think my FML would get posted so I didn't create an account until now, haha. First, thank you all for your suggestions and understanding! Now, to clarify some things...(long comment incoming!) 1. I actually started researching for this assignment on Christmas (My family doesn't celebrate Christmas or New Years so I had no holiday celebrations to distract me). The institutional login went down on the 31st of December and during that time, I had just finished reading textbooks a

3rd day attempting to find resources plus 2 days until it was due means that he tried to start 5 days ahead. I wouldn't call that last minute. Sometimes, I have to start papers a week before their due date because the professor is still teaching on the subject or hasn't even gotten to it yet.

Usually professors are really understanding if you can't log into something especially if you tried to seek help. Just have some proof and hope that they are in a good mood!

paying attention to a class doesn't mean you'll understand everything. paying attention also can't help when you can't log into something, unless the professor had told the class that the login information has been changed.

Last year in my Biology class, I never took notes, fell asleep a few times (I work nights), and never read the book or studied the material. I passed with an 88.

could you not reach out to other students in the same class to get some understanding ? and if you explain what happened to your professor I'm sure they help you out alittle with an extension.

Being that most schools have been on break for the holidays for at least a week I'm going to have to agree with the "don't procrastinate" comments. if you didn't understand the theory you should've asked the teacher about it prior to winter break...YDI

I failed a online test when the university site went down for maintenance, and signed me out 2 minutes into an exam. Instructor said the syllabus was very clear on no excuses on incomplete tests.
