Assessment method

Year 1 (Level 4) assessments focus upon knowledge and skill development through a blend of examinations, essays and reports. Year 2 (Level 5) assessments build upon this by developing optional interests, which can expand the assessments to include presentations, proposals and group work, whilst Year 3 (Level 6) assessments have a prominent focus upon individual projects and self-directed learning activities.
