There will be an assignment and a test for each of the sections of the course. In addition there may be impromptu quizzes. Students are therefore strongly encouraged to be present for all lectures and course activities. It is expected that unless by prior arrangement with the relevant lecturer, all assignments should be submitted typed maximum 5 pages, font size 12 and line spacing 1.5. Note that plagiarism is not accepted. It is an academic offence and work that shows some evidence of plagiarism will be penalized.
Continuous Assessment will contribute 30% on the final grade
- Continuous assessment will include in class tests, quizzes, assignments, field visit reports and group presentations
Final Exam will contribute the remaining 70 %
- Students with a continuous assessment mark of less than 40% will not be allowed to sit for the final examination. In the event that they do sit for the exam, the maximum mark they can score is 48%.
