I've been nursing relatives during the lockdown, and there's been a few bereavements in my extended family. Because of this, my university department gave me an extension for my written work, which was due on June 30.
Unfortunately, I couldn't get it done on time, and I've only just handed it in, a full two weeks late!
I'm feeling dreadful about it, but with all of my extra caring commitments, I couldn't get it in on time.
My Supervisor has emailed me asking if I've received feedback on the work. I can't respond to him, I'm so embarrassed.
Am I being too hard on myself, or have I really messed up?
When you say written work, I'm assuming you are referring to your thesis? I would imagine that extensions to registration/thesis submission in the current climate are quite normal. If you were able to provide them with evidence of your situation then I wouldn't worry about it too much. We're in the middle of a global pandemic, it would be very unreasonable of them to fail you for the reasons you've mentioned!
