Assessment method

Assessment varies depending on the modules you choose, but will usually include a combination of exams and coursework. Each module is individually assessed, either by exam and coursework or just coursework, depending on the subject. The more practical the module, the more likely it is that you will be continually assessed throughout the year. You will receive marks for each piece of work, as well as constructive feedback via Canvas, face-to-face or as written comments. This will help you to identify your strengths as well as the areas where you may need to put in more work. The Officer of the Watch qualification and the associated additional short courses are examined separately and will take additional time to complete.
