Well, our assignments for the Research Methods module are due about now. I say 'about now' because no-one seems to know exactly when they're due! My understanding is that they're both due this Friday. Other people have all sorts of combinations, including Wendnesday next week, which is a bit dangerous because if it's due Friday but hand in the Wednesday after, then you've missed the deadline. Not a good start to the course if you manage to miss the first submission deadline.
The experience confirms that to know exactly what we need to do and when, it's best to check with our Postgrad secretary.
It's scary to think how easy it would be to miss a due date. I'd hate to jeopardies my course because of something like this. Vigilance is the key...
