HOW YOUR WORK IS ASSESSED

Your progress will be assessed by completing an assignment at the end of each Module.

The assignments have been designed to help you prepare for your final examination – many of the questions are based on past exam papers. They will also help you develop  exam techniques which will help you to understand just what the examiner is looking for.

The assignments allow you to think critically about what you have learned and will enable your tutor to see how well you are progressing. Your tutor will mark your assignments and provide you with detailed feedback. Once you have had your marked assignment returned, you will be able to access the Mark Scheme and/or a Specimen Answer (an A-grade piece of work). You should reflect carefully on your tutor’s feedback and apply it in your future assignments.
