    So I am going to Portsmouth in September, I see on the site that the summer term starts on June 2, after the assessment period. Does anyone know how many assessments you have to do in the first year of a Comp Sci. degree and when they would be (by which I mean rough part of the assessment period, ie early May etc. not exact dates)? I ask because I have a pretty important event (yes I know that sounds vague) on May 30th that I would want to attend but just want to know if I am likely to have an assessment or whatever on that day.
    This isn't affecting my decision to actually attend Portsmouth by the way, I am obviously just going to have to do all assessments no matter what, but I want to at least know my chances... I figure there is some kind of chance that if I'm lucky all first-year assessments are held early in the assessment period or something....

    It'll depend on how the course is running that year, what modules you have and availability of rooms etc. It's very difficult to predict so unfortunately there's no real answer to this.

    Hi there,
    Susan from the Information Centre here..I agree with the previous reply as
    timetabling won't be finalised as yet but if it's a really important event that you need to know about then you could try contacting the department to ask them directly.[*]T: +44 (0)23 9284 6400[*]E: [email protected]
