Additional Course Outline Information
All forms of cheating and dishonest practice are taken seriously and penalties will result. Students should refer to Regulation J of the General Course and Examination Regulations.
The assignments are graded against the University scale A+ to E. Satisfactory completion of the course overall to at least a C- grade is required in order to pass the course. Both assignments must be submitted. Final grades for the course will be calculated taking into account the weighting of each assignment. Each grade is allocated a numerical value (from E = -1 to A+ = 9). This is multiplied by the assignment weighting. The grades are then added and the final grade

Formal and informal evaluation will take place in accordance with the relevant Course Evaluation Policy, to provide feedback to teaching staff about the relevance and validity of what has been learned as well as the quality of course delivery.
The College undertakes a process of internal and external moderation of assessment. This is to ensure that the assessment system is fair, equitable, consistent and manageable
FLO assignments submitted by hand, email, fax, drop-box or any other online repository after the due date, with no extension granted, are considered 'late'.
FLO assignments submitted by post or courier which are date stamped by the Academic Services Team more than two days after the due date are considered 'late'.
Please refer to the Assessment Guidelines for students.
Where two examiners or an examiner and an independent witness are not available, the oral assessment will be videoed.
Extensions are reserved for exceptional circumstances only and are not granted automatically. Under exceptional circumstances (eg illness, accident, bereavement or critical personal circumstances) individual students may be granted an extension of the due date for an assignment. There is, however, a limit to the length of time that an extension can be granted and this should be negotiated with the Course lecturer in the first instance. Extensions will not normally be given for longer than one week from the due date, unless exceptional circumstances prevail. Extensions are not granted automatically to students. Requests for extensions should be emailed to the lecturer at least two days prior to the due date for the assignment. A copy of the lecturer's email confirming the extension (if granted) and other relevant evidence of special circumstances (eg. a letter from a counsellor, medical certificate) must be attached to and submitted with the assignment. Extensions will not normally be granted
because of pressure of university study, ego several pieces of work being due at about the same time. Students are encouraged to plan their work in a realistic manner and in advance so that they can meet their assessment deadlines.
Work must be resubmitted by the due date supplied by the lecturer. Late assignments are not considered for resubmission unless there are exceptional circumstances. The original work and marking sheet must accompany any resubmit.
Electronic submission required (as advised on Learn).
