|It's not always good to be a perfectionist|
Sometimes this flows from perfectionism, performance anxiety, or even a sense of imposter syndrome - a student feeling that their work isn't good enough.
In truth though, it is always better to hand in something than nothing; an imperfect submission is always better than no submission at all.
If you submit your work late, you may get an extension, but you will have to deal with the Mitigating Circumstances and Extensions policy, which will itself consume time and effort. Far better to submit what you have done, however imperfect, before the deadline. After all, your work may be better than you think.
Something is Better Than Nothing
Quality -v- Quantity
In the creative industries, it is always hard to be completely objective about quality; everyone is a critic, and tastes differ. But, at the end of the day, deadlines must be met, and product must be delivered - every project is a balance between quantity and quality. So it is with academic deadlines - if you submit whatever you have done on time (ideally, submit your work early), you are then able to move on to the next task.
