In order to be considered for a pass grade for the module you must
- Submit the assessed coursework
- Attend the examination.
Non-submission of the assessed coursework will result in the award of
No Grade for the module as a whole. Assessed coursework submitted
late will be accepted up to five days
after the submission date (or expiry of any agreed extension) but the
grade will be lowered by one grade point
per day or part thereof. After five days the piece of work will
be deemed a non-submission, and will result
in the award of No Grade for the module as a whole. This rule
(regarding coursework) may be
relaxed for students who can show good cause for failure to
submit. ‘Good cause’ may include illness (for
which a medical certificate or other evidence will be required).
If a student is unable to attend the Main examination, he/she must
apply to the Student Programmes Office for a Deferred
examination. If a Deferred examination is not
granted, then the Examiners may allow a Repeat examination.
A student who attends neither the main exam nor the Repeat/Deferred exam will
be awarded No Grade for the
module as a whole.
Students who obtain an overall fail grade (4A-5C) for the module following the main
examination will be eligible for a Repeat examination.
The grade awarded following a
Repeat examination is calculated from the original checkpoint and assignment achievements
together with the better of the original and new exam marks, and is capped at 3C.
