Assessments and Examinations
This course is assessed by modular assessment. This means that you will have one summative assessment for each of the eight taught modules. These assessments are all equally weighted and together they make up 60% of the overall degree grade.
You will be assessed on Modules 1-4 in weeks 9 & 10 of Michaelmas Term, and on Modules 5-8 in Weeks 9 & 10 of Hilary Term. You will then complete the research project in Trinity Term and Long Vacation
Assessments can be in a range of formats including examinations, written coursework, presentations, and oral examinations.
Throughout the course you will also have the opportunity to complete several formative assessments. These are practice assessments of different types, on which you will be provided with feedback from the course team. Formative assessments do not count towards your overall degree grade, but they are vital for your academic development.
