what i meant to say was:
how are you assessed for your degree?
like is it from exams? written essays you hand in? progress in lessons?
sorry if this is a really stupid question, but i'm in year 12 and realised i don't have a clue. cheers for any responses
'how are you assessed for your degree?' depends on the course, but generally a combination of exams and essays in the main part, plus a possibility of group work, presentations etc.
Varies enormously depending on what subject you do and from university to university, most of my modules are 20-30% assignments with the rest being exams, although there are a few that have way more assignments.
At the moment its 100% exams.
My last degree was almost 100% presentations, but that was rubbish because it meant that my marks were being pulled down by the ineptitude of others and since the majority of the marks seemed to be for the quality of the presentation, the actual content of work became trivial. Also, marks for referencing? What?
I don't have any examinations.
I have about 6 Essays a term plus practical projects where I am marked via continual assessment as well as on the end product.
It varies from course to course.
Completely depends on the course. A mix of essays/lab reports and exams. Not progress though.
As others have said, it depends on your course. For me, I'm mostly assessed by paperwork for my productions, the productions themselves, or my teamwork/work alone.
Occasionally I do written assignments.
Depends on course and modules.
50% Coursework (Projects/Lab Reports/Essays/Portfolios)
But also had presentations, power points and practical tests.
So. Everything basically!!
coursework, lab reports, end of term exams and summer exams
For me, it's about 50% exams, and 50% coursework essays and group presentations. Seems to be a reasonably fair way of doing things.
For me it's largely essays and reports, let's say about 60%. Then about 20% exams and 20% presentations.
