Late submission loophole

Hi all. 

So, I thought my essay was due on the 6th. I was smugly submitting it today, 3 days early, to only realise that it was due at 5pm today! 
My tutor has informed me that it’s a 10 point deduction. This is final year and I need every one of those points! 

I believe I have identified a loophole- due to covid, there is a safety net policy in place which means resubmission a following a fail are not capped at 40. What is stopping me resubmitting a blank document, which will fail, and then I can resubmit my actual assignment and receive my full grade?! I’m confident enough that my assignment would not be below a 40 grade (would not be a fail). 

can this be done? 

thanks in advance,
