WARNING: A group assignment submission link only permits ONE attempt. This means that if your group members each need to submit a file as part of the group assignment, your will need to co-ordinate this within your group. We advise that you either nominate one member of the group to make the submissions on behalf of the whole group OR, as each member uploads their contribution to the assignment THEY MUST make sure that they click only on ‘Save and Close’ and not ‘Submit’.

Only when all files that make up the submission have been added should one member of the group click the ‘Submit’ button.
