Assessment and marking policies


The policies below apply to all students on taught courses (ie. sub-degree, undergraduate and taught postgraduate courses).

Marking policy

The policy applies to assessment contributing to a mark at all levels, including level three, level four, as well as the mark appearing on the Examination Board grids from which a student's final degree classification is derived.

A list of definitions and marking policies is given in the document below and includes a table showing the requirements applied to different forms of assessment. Where a particular mode of assessment requires moderation, second-marking or double-marking, the requirements outlined in the policy are a minimum. Departments can moderate, second-mark or double-mark more work if they wish or if they are required to do so by a professional body.
