You earn a year mark by submitting assignments 01 and 02 . The marks obtained for these assignments will be combined with your examination mark in order to calculate the final assessment mark for this module. This assignment mark will contribute a maximum of 10% (5% each) to the final assessment mark for the module, while the examination mark will contribute 90%. Note that only the submission of assignment 01 is required for admission to the examination although the marks obtained for both assignments contribute towards you final mark. Therefore, although you will be admitted to the examination even if you do not submit assignment 02, you will forfeit 5% of your final mark (see example 3 below). You will have to obtain a minimum of 50% for the year mark and the examination mark combined for the final assessment mark in order to pass the module. Irrespective of the year mark obtained a subminimum of 40% must be obtained in the examination. In line with the Unisa assessment policy, a student’s year marks will not be taken into account if he/she obtains less than 40% in the examination. In such an event the mark obtained in the examination will be the final mark. You will therefore not pass a module if your examination mark is less than 40%.

6 Please study the following examples of how the assignment mark will contribute to the final assessment mark: Example 1: The student submits the two compulsory assignments and obtains 50% and 60% respectively. Each assignment mark is multiplied by 0.05 as they both contribute 5% towards the final mark. This equals 2.5% and 3% respectively. The student will therefore have a year mark of 5.5% (2.5% + 3%) out of a possible 10%. If the student obtains 50% in the examination, this percentage is then multiplied by 0,9 which equals 45% of the final assessment mark. The year mark and the examination mark are then added (5.5% + 45%) to give a final assessment mark of 51% for the module. Example 2: The student submits the two compulsory assignments and obtains 20% and 40% respectively. Each assignment mark is multiplied by 0.05 as they both contribute 5% towards the final mark. This equals 1% and 2% respectively. The student will therefore have a year mark of 3% (1% + 2%) out of a possible 10%. If the student obtains 52% in the examination, this percentage will be multiplied by 0,9 which equals 46.8% of the final assessment mark. The year mark and the examination mark are then combined (3% and 46.8%) to give a final assessment mark of 50% for the module. This implies that, in this case, the student must obtain at least 52% for the examination to obtain a final assessment mark of 50% in order to pass the module. Example 3: The student submits only assignment 01 and obtains 70%. He/she does not submit assignment 02 and therefore forfeits 5% of his/her final mark. The mark for assignment 01 is multiplied by 0.05 as it contributes 5% towards the final mark. This equals 3.5% and is regarded as the student’s year mark out of a possible 10%. If the student obtains 52% in the examination, this percentage will be multiplied by 0,9 which equals 46.8% of the final assessment mark.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
