Second chance

One of my teacher emailed me last Friday about my unsubmitted assignment. She was requiring me to have an excuse letter signed by my parents explaining why I wasn't able to comply with the said requirement, in order to accept my late homework. I didn't have a valid reason because I literally did my homework last minute and ran out of time. I was contemplating whether to tell the truth or not, so I consulted my friends and told me to tell the truth instead. And so I did. I expressed in the email that I wasn't able to pass my homework for I have crammed it, therefore I ran out of time, and that I'm willing to accept the consequence of having a zero grade for not complying with the said deadline.

Two days passed, and I received an email that she appreciates my honesty on why I wasn't able to submit my homework. She told me that she would give me another chance to send the homework via email, however the highest grade that I would get would only be 70% of the total score.

When I read the message, I felt like crying, but tears weren't falling down. I've accepted my fate of having a zero grade on that homework, but she still gave me a chance. I won't promise, but I will try my best to be diligent with my task next time. Thank you so much!

That's great that you got another chance! 70% is a lot better than nothing for sure
