Reassessment Requirement
A repeat examination
Reassessment of this module will consist of a repeat examination. It is possible that there will also be a requirement to be reassessed in a coursework element.
Reassessment Description
The form of reassessment has been more clearly articulated in all relevant module descriptors. Students shall be offered appropriate alternative assessments in place of recoverable elements of coursework. Elements of coursework which the programme board have agreed are non-recoverable are clearly communicated to students.

DKIT reserves the right to alter the nature and timings of assessment
