The hurdle task for this unit is the preliminary thesis report. A grade of 50% (35 out of 70) or more on the preliminary thesis is a necessary but not sufficient condition for passing this unit. Students who receive greater than or equal to 40% (28 out of 70) but less than 50% (35 out of 70) will be given a second opportunity, in which case your submission will be due during the supplementary examination period and you will be notified of the exact day and time by the unit convenor. The second attempt at a hurdle assessment is graded as pass/fail. The maximum grade for a second attempt is the hurdle threshold grade (35 out of 70).
No extensions will be granted without an approved application for Special Consideration. There will be a deduction of 10% of the total available marks made from the total awarded mark for each 24 hour period or part thereof that the submission is late. For example, 25 hours late in submission for an assignment worth 10 marks – 20% penalty or 2 marks deducted from the total.
