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
Repeat CA assignments and tests may be offered for those whose overall performance will be jeopardized by the carry forward of poor CA ( less than 30%)
