The year mark and the examination mark are then combined (3.5% and 46.8%) to give a final assessment mark of 50% for the module. This implies that, in this case, the student must also obtain at least 52% for the examination to obtain a final assessment mark of 50% in order to pass the module. If you write a supplementary examination the year mark will not be taken into account when the final mark is calculated hence the mark you receive will only be what you obtained for the examination. If you write an aegrotat examination the year mark will be taken into account but the subminimum rule of 40% will apply. This means that, should you obtain a mark of less than 40% in the examination, your year mark will not be taken into account, and the examination mark will be your final mark for the module. The completion of assignments provides an excellent opportunity for you to ensure that the work you do during the course of the year contributes towards your final assessment mark. You are therefore advised and encouraged to do every assignment (including the self-assessment assignments that should not be submitted to Unisa for marking) and obtain a good mark in the assignments. Assignment enquiries Enquiries about the receipt of assignments or assignment marks may be directed to Directorate Student Assessment Administration (see the Unisa: Services and Procedures brochure for details). Assignment information can also be obtained by accessing myUnisa. Please note that, even if you submit your assignment before the due date, it will only be sent to the lecturer for assessment after the due date of the assignment. No assignments will therefore be assessed before the due date. 6.2 EXAMINATIONS The examination is your opportunity to demonstrate that you have achieved the learning outcomes of this module.

    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.
