Submit your work
As a student, you have a limited number of opportunities to submit. When you are given a submission date that is your opportunity; if you do not submit anything or submit work that is subpar, that is still an opportunity used. 
All elements of a module need to have been submitted in order to pass the module and where there is two or more contributory elements your programme regulations/module guidance will inform you of any weighting attributed to the elements.
