Assessment Rationale And Relationship
Unseen essay examination (two questions from an open choice of four) is used to allow students to demonstrate both factual knowledge, and – by their organization of material – abstract systematic understanding of topics in an objective and rigorous manner.
FMS Schools offering Semester One modules available as ‘Study Abroad’ will, where required, provide an alternative assessment time for examinations that take place after the Christmas vacation. Coursework with submissions dates after the Christmas vacation will either be submitted at an earlier date or at the same time remotely.
The form of assessment will not vary from the original.
