Assessments

Assessment is on a Pass/Fail basis. In order to pass the assignment you must pass each of the learning outcomes and professional values (i.e. you cannot compensate between them).

You must pass all assignments in order to successfully complete each module.  As this is a postgraduate programme, the pass mark is 50%.

Full details will be provided during the PGCAP workshops and are also provided in the Module handbooks.
