Essay 1 and Essay 2 are hurdle assessments and you will need to get >= 30% to meet these hurdles. In the event that you make a serious first attempt at a hurdle task, you will be provided with the opportunity to re-attempt the failed hurdle task. The Faculty define a serious attempt as a mark that is 10% below the hurdle, which in this instance is a mark between 20-30%. You will NOT be given a second attempt at a hurdle task if you get below 20% in your first attempt. If you fail all attempts at a hurdle task, you will fail the unit (grade F or FH).
