TSMB: Coursework & Submission
Assessment course work questions in TSMB 2008-2009 will be released
regularly, usually a few days after each course work section has been released.
Three sections of assessment course work questions form half a unit. The
assessment course work questions will be linked directly from the section index.
be required to send their completed assignments to both the tutors
the course administrator [Maureen
Austin] by email. This will be four times a year, in December, February,
April and July. Exact deadlines will be posted on the timetable and these will be followed by the
release of the course work answers by individual email after the final
deadline. However, students are strongly advised to complete their coursework
as soon as possible, after it is made available, and submit it then rather than
wait to send all of them in at the very last minute. It is usually better to submit part of the
coursework on time than to submit all of it late.
Guidelines for submission of coursework
has now started the new common award structure [CAS]
which places very strict requirements on submission deadlines, see URLs below;
Work in on time
Work on time,
handed in on or before the correct submission deadline [http://tsmb08.cryst.bbk.ac.uk/course/index.html]
will be marked normally.
Work that is handed in late
Work that is
handed in after the correct submission deadline, but before the
final deadline which is two weeks after the inital
deadline, will be marked normally. Then two marks will be recorded, (a) the
penalty mark of 50% [or the actual mark if below 50%] and (b) the real mark
that would have been awarded if the work was not submitted late, but on
time. Only if you submit accepted
mitigating circumstances do you get a mark above 50% (see below).
Work that is
handed in after the final deadline, when model answers are published, it will
be awarded 0% . No mitigation will apply.
Work that is handed in late for good
If your work is handed in late for good reason [mitigating circumstances],
then you should try to let us know by email, before the deadline if
possible, but definitely by the relevant deadline date plus fourteen
days [e.g. Monday 15/12/08 becomes Monday 29/12 08]. You must then provide us
with paper documentation to support your claim [by post to the School for the
attention of the course administrator, Maureen Austin]. This should conytain a completed standard College Mitigating
Circumstances claim form [see annex A of http://www.bbk.ac.uk/reg/regs/mitcircspol
] and any supporting documentation, for example a medical certificate. This
documentation must reach us within 28 days [one month]after
the correct submission deadline date for mitigation to be considered . In these
circumstances, after due consideration by the Exam Board, the course work may
receive, (a) the full penalty mark of 50% or the actual mark if less or (b) an
adjusted mark up to the recorded real mark
Correct submission deadline/Deadline/Deadline date/Deadlines: These are all
the normal published deadlines referred to in the timetable to hand in a half
unit of course work, when model answers are released.
Deadline/Deadline date plus seven days: As above, the normal published deadline
plus fourteen days.
A course work half unit: A collection of three sections course work.
