1st Attempt: 1 two-hour written examination (80%) and one piece of written work (1,000 words) (20%).
The students are presented with an opportunity to engage in a non-assessed written tutorial exercise which is handed in, marked and returned to the students with feedback before the scheduled assessed coursework is to be handed in.
The students have a minimum of two opportunities to receive feedback from staff before their final exam. Firstly, there is feedback upon the non-assessed formative assessment represented by the written tutorial exercise. Secondly there is feedback provided upon the assessed coursework: this feedback takes two forms, a general feedback pointing out common errors which is posted on MyAberdeen, and, specific written feedback on the returned pieces of assessed coursework.
