Marking and Assessment

For all our university courses, external examiners are appointed by the partner university. A sample of assessments is forwarded to the External Examiner. That sample includes all scripts at grades A and F, and 10% of all scripts at Grades B, C and D.  If the total number of assessments is less than 8, then all assessments will be moderated.
