Faculty assessment process

Unit assessment regime

  1. As a general guideline, the total length of assessment tasks for a 6 credit point unit should not exceed 6,000 words-equivalent. Each hour of an examination is treated as being equivalent to 1,000 words of assessment. This weighting of 6,000 words per 6 credit points is also applicable to 12, 18 and 24 credit point units (i.e. 12,000, 18,000 and 24,000 words respectively).

  2. Heads of Department may specify further requirements of chief examiners, such as the preparation of model solutions for the examination questions. Any model solutions must be approved by an independent staff member.
