Question about marking

Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016

    If I submit a piece of coursework as part of a module, if I only get 20 marks do these marks count for anything? Do they help me in anyway or do they not count as they are too low?

    This is at Newcastle University BTW.

    You will need to find the mark scheme for your department, which will tell you. If the work was menat to ****, and you get 20%, then yes id think it would especially if it was aggreagted with other work, but do check as it may be discarded and you will be required to resit.

    I've tried to find mark schemes and such but I can't really seem to find anything that really explains this point. I don't think a resit is really possible because it's coursework (not an exam).

    BTW what's the censored word in your post I can't quite understand it?
