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
Students shall be offered appropriate alternative assessments in place of recoverable elements of coursework for consideration prior to the repeat examination board meeting. Elements of coursework which the programme board have agreed are non-recoverable are clearly communicated to students at the start of each semester.

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